The "movie" captures a June 2016 performance of the musical, with the full original principal cast taking center stage in closeup: Miranda as Alexander Hamilton, Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler, Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Jonathan Groff as King George, Jasmine Cephas Jones as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds, Okieriete Onaodowan as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison, and Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton.

Though initially announced for a theatrical premiere in October 2021, Disney secured the title for an earlier at-home release amid the coronavirus pandemic, giving theatre enthusiasts some good news amid the continued shutdown of Broadway and performing arts organizations worldwide. Disney and Miranda produce the filmed version with Jeffrey Seller and director Thomas Kail.
