How to enjoy the magic of ‘Hamilton’ without Disney+

Hamilton is here for Disney+ subscribers.

Thanks to the COViD-19 pandemic, Broadway will remain shut down through at least the beginning of 2021. But theater fans who subscribe to Disney+ received a gift on Friday in the form of a filmed version of Hamilton from 2016, featuring the original cast.

It’s great, and really a top reason to be a Disney+ subscriber at this point. In the more than five years since Hamilton premiered, the only ways to experience the show have been the Original Cast Recording or nabbing a ticket – not cheap, and not always easy – for the live show. So this movie brings the show to a whole new audience. Read More

Disney axes 4K re-release of ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ in UK cinemas


As cinemas in the UK prepared to reopen after lockdown, they promised Star Wars fans a treat. Disney and Vue planned to release a 4K version of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in theaters. That would have been the first time a UHD version of an original trilogy film appeared in theaters. But now, Disney and Vue are walking back on their promise. Instead, Vue theaters will show the original 2K version of the film, Variety reports.

This isn’t entirely surprising, as plans for reopening and release dates are still changing. According to Variety, exhibitors Vue and Cineworld have shifted their reopening dates from July 10th to July 31st.

Ford taps Disney Media Works to mark the return of the Bronco SUV – TechCrunch


Ford is teaming up with Disney Media Networks to mark the return of its iconic Bronco SUV through a series of short films that will be broadcast across a number of cable and digital properties including ABC, ESPN, National Geographic and Hulu.

The strategy — prompted by COVID-19 shutdowns — is a departure for Ford, which has traditionally revealed new vehicles at auto shows or other in-person media events. More than three years ago, Ford announced it was bringing back the Bronco after years of customer requests and speculation. The mid-size SUV that ended its 30-year production run in 1996 was supposed to debut in June at the revamped North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Ford was forced to come up with a new strategy after organizers cancelled the 2020 NAIAS due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Read More

Verizon adds free Disney+, Hulu streaming to some Fios packages


Verizon

There are a couple of conditions to keep in mind. The first of which is that the included Hulu subscription gives you access to the platform’s ad-supported tier, not its more expensive ad-free plan. Moreover, the base 200Mbps plan, which costs $40 per month, isn’t included in the deal. However, it still comes with a free year of Disney+.

One other thing to note is that you’ll need to cancel the included Disney+ and Hulu subscriptions if you don’t want to pay for them beyond the time that you have access to them for free. Otherwise, they’ll automatically renew, costing you $13 per month together. The promotion ends on September 23rd, after which it’s possible to redeem the trials until December 23rd. Lastly, the deal is also available to returning customers.  Read More

‘Hamilton’ teases fans with a very satisfying new clip ahead of Disney+ release

The filmed original cast performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton is now only a moment away, due to land on Disney+ on July 3. To tide over eager fans as they wait for it, Disney has just released a sneak peek of Renée Elise Goldsberry’s Angelica Schuyler performing her iconic song “Satisfied.”

The performance of “Satisfied” is a defining moment in Hamilton, so it’s thrilling that so many people will finally get to see it as it was originally staged. Read More
