Lin-Manuel Miranda announced the news earlier this month on social media.

He shared a 10 second teaser with the caption, 'It's only a matter of time...'

This new movie will give you the chance to experience the hit Broadway production from the comfort of your home.

The show, composed by Miranda, has been a massive success, claiming 11 Tony Awards.

It also took home the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Drama.

It was announced in February last year that the Broadway show was being released as a movie.

Before the original cast's departure in 2016, they filmed the show at the Richard Rogers Theatre in NYC.

They filmed for several days and used the footage to create a Disney produced movie.
