Lin-Manuel Miranda has shared some new insight on the upcoming Disney Plus release of Hamilton coming up on July 3, including how it’s censored for the family-friendly platform.
Hamilton on Disney Plus is a recording of a Broadway performance from 2016, featuring the original cast–and the original swears–minus two. The movie version is rated PG-13, so it is only allowed to have one use of the word “f**k.” The actual play has three, so two “f**k”s were censored or changed.
In the Yorktown scene, the line “I get the f**k back up again” will be muted on the swear word. The other censor will be on the “Southern mother f**king Democratic Republicans” line.
