A filmed version of the Broadway musical sensation Hamilton takes center stage on Disney+ just in time for the July 4 holiday weekend. Director Thomas Kail lovingly captured a performance by the original cast of the Broadway musical, which won 11 Tony Awards. The film version was quickly Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and currently holds a perfect 100% score.

Plus, Solo: A Star Wars Story, telling the tale of a young Han Solo and the origins of his friendship with Chewbacca and ownership of the Millennium Falcon, lands on the streamer. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as the titular space cowboy, with Joonas Suotamo, as Chewbacca, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke as Qi’ra, and Woody Harrelson as Beckett.

The Muppets also return in new “unscripted” series Muppets Now. Kermit, Miss Piggy, and the rest of the gang return for the latest adventure set in the Muppet universe.
