The original cast of “Hamilton” is going back to the room where it happened.

Disney+ unveiled the first trailer for the filmed version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit Broadway musical late Sunday in preparation for its July 3 unveiling on the Mouse’s streaming site.

The movie, filmed at The Richard Rodgers Theatre in June 2016, features the entire original cast, including Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler, Jonathan Groff as King George, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Jasmine Cephas Jones as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds, Miranda as Alexander Hamilton, Leslie Odom, Jr. as Aaron Burr, Okieriete Onaodowan as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison, Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton and Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton.

“May you always be satisfied,” Miranda tweeted along with the trailer, quoting from his own lyrics.

The minute-long trailer boasts a medley of the most popular songs from the hip-hop historical musical, including “Alexander Hamilton” and “Satisfied,” and its now-famous choreography.

“Hamilton” shot to popularity when it opened on Broadway in August 2015, going on to win 11 Tony Awards the following year, including best musical, and the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

The production has since expanded out of New York to shows in Chicago, the West End and multiple tours. The Los Angeles production, scheduled for March, was put on hold due to the coronavirus shutdown.

The filmed version of “Hamilton” was originally supposed to be released in theaters in October 2021, but was shifted to Disney+ in May as the Great White Way closed the red curtains during the outbreak.

“Lin-Manuel Miranda created an unforgettable theater experience and a true cultural phenomenon, and it was for good reason that Hamilton was hailed as an astonishing work of art,” Disney Chairman Bob Iger said in a statement when the movie was first announced. “All who saw it with the original cast will never forget that singular experience. And we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to share this same Broadway experience with millions of people around the world.”
