Home Movies What Lin Manuel Miranda Did So Disney Plus Would Rate “Hamilton” Telefilm...

On Twitter just now, Lin Manuel Miranda explained what he gave up so DisneyPlus would rate the “Hamilton” telefilm PG-13 instead of R.

He wrote, in response to a question from a fan who asked what changed:

“LANGUAGE!
1. On July 3, you’re getting the whole show, every note & scene, & a 1-minute countdown clock during intermission (bathroom!)
2. But MPAA has a hard rule about language: more than 1 utterance of “Fuck” is an automatic R rating. We have 3 “Fucks” in our show. So….I literally gave two fucks so the kids could see it:
1. In Yorktown, there’s a mute over “I get the f___ back up again”
2. “Southern *record scratch*kin’ Democratic Republicans.”
You can sing whatEVER you like at home (even sync up the album)!
Love you. Enjoy.”

Earlier, Lin Manuel responded to questions about the release on July 3rd
