Lin-Manuel Miranda and Disney have a lockdown surprise for us this week, announcing that the highly anticipated Hamilton movie is coming to Disney + very soon.
This is the best news we've heard. Keep scrolling to find out all the details and when the movie will be hitting screens...
Disney Plus finally landed last year.

But what exactly does Disney Plus have to offer?

Though some may already have the equivalent in DVDs at home...

Anyway, the list of movies and TV shows now made available, on-demand, is endless...
via: ShutterstockEven more so than your old DVD collection. Whether you're a self-confessed Marvel geek, the more retro kind of Disney fan who opts for the '90s classics, or you simply want to binge the entirety of High School Musical (guilty), Disney Plus can make it happen.
And, with it only costing $69.99 a year...Or $6.99 a month for all those commitment-phobes out there, it's a pretty sweet deal, to say the least.
The service also includes unlimited downloads...

Netflix and chill is out...
