The Hamilton fun continues this week on Disney+ with the premiere of a new special called Hamilton: History Has Its Eyes On You hosted by Robin Roberts. New films and shows join the Library this week including Solo: A Star Wars Story. But the real fun lies in our Library Highlights section where we’ve curated a watch guide to celebrate the reopening of the four parks of the Walt Disney World Resort. We’re also feeling the spirit of the holiday season with a Christmas in July watch guide and as always, every day is a holiday! Whatever you choose to stream this week, we hope it’s magical.
Robin Roberts hosts this special with the cast and creative team of Hamilton that examines the show’s historical accuracy and cultural relevance today.
