Hamilton Disney Plus Streaming Exclusively July 3rd

Disney Plus is constantly rolling out a series of new and legacy content to enjoy at all times. As there is so much it can be difficult to find something to watch, especially to celebrate a specific occasion.

So here are 5 things to watch on Disney Plus to celebrate July 4th this year.

Liberty Story

The Liberty Story is an episode of the classic Disney television show Disneyland featuring a ton of patriotic-themed fun, including shorts, and a look at a never built addition to Disneyland based on two different distinct periods in American history. Walt Disney loved the US and this was one of his many tributes to it.


Disney's big release this year for the holiday is a pro-shot version of Hamilton, An American Musical. This is a filmed version (not a film version) of the original Broadway production featuring the entire original Broadway cast. In a world without any live theater, this is a welcome addition to Disney Plus. Be sure to tune in for our review of this on Friday when it is released.

Princess and the Frog

Princess and the Frog Splash Mountain

This is one of the few Disney films that take place in the US, and one of only two Disney Princess films to take place there. Featuring a stunning score and some of the best hand-drawn animation Disney has ever done, it is a great film to watch at the moment.

Brother Bear

Brother Bear Transformation Disney

Another of the classic Disney animated films to take place in the US, this follows a story inspired in part by Native American folklore, as well as a great musical score by Phil Collins. This is an underrated gem that is certainly well worth a watch.

Captain America First Avenger

This movie is from an early stage in the MCU. The stakes were more grounded during this period, following a series of soldiers in an alternate version of WWII. It is patriotic, historical, and is a great way to celebrate the start of America.
