About Hamilton

Hamilton is a musical with music, lyrics, and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda that tells the story of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.

Inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow, the show’s music draws heavily from hip hop, as well as R&B, pop, soul, and traditional-style show tunes; the show also casts non-white actors as the Founding Fathers and other historical figures.

Hamilton Characters

  • Alexander Hamilton was an American statesman, politician, legal scholar, military commander, lawyer, banker, and economist.

Is Hamilton on Disney Plus?

On July 3, the Disney Plus streaming service will release a filmed version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton,” timed for the Independence Day holiday weekend. (Source)

Is Hamilton suitable for kids?

Disney Plus will begin streaming Hamilton on Friday, July 3, 2020. The official rating is PG-13 and Lin-Manuel Miranda has said that he gave up two uses of the F-word to avoid the R rating.

About the Disney-Hamilton Deal

Disney, perhaps the most skillful tactician of milking cultural touchstones for profit, would pay such an enormous sum for the worldwide rights of a filmed version of the stage production.

While the reported $75 million winning bid may have been the largest-ever price paid for a single film acquisition.

Miranda has not aligned himself with any one studio, but the “Hamilton” acquisition marks Disney’s move to bring him under the same corporate umbrella as Marvel and “Star Wars.” (Source)

How to Play Printable Disney Movie Trivia Game

Setup

The first step is to print off the Disney Trivia game. You may want to laminate the trivia questions and answers so they can be reused over and over again. Or, print the trivia on white cardstock so they are sturdier and easier to play with.

Cut out the individual questions along with the rectangles.

Play

Ways to play:

  • call out the answer
  • write down the answer

Call Out the Answer

The first way is to play as a group. You can have a game moderator who calls out the questions, selects a player, and determines who answered the question correctly.

Start the game with the youngest player.

The player who answers the question correctly keeps the card.

When all questions have been answered, tally up who has the most cards. That person will be the winner.

Write Down the Answer

The second way is to also play as a group. You can have a game moderator who calls out the questions and everyone writes down their answer.

When all questions have been answered, the winner is the person who answered the most questions correctly.

Scoring for Disney Trivia

There are two ways to score this game.

Scoring is either done by the moderator, each player scores his own answers, or teams switch answer sheets to score each other.

Hamilton Word Scramble

  • Complete in pencil, in case you make mistakes
  • Think of words you could create starting with each letter.
  • Example:  T K H N I – If the first letter is T, then the second letter could not be K. Maybe the second letter could be H. Then, these two letters should be followed by a vowel. Now, we have THI and K N are the only letters left. It’s pretty likely that the word is THINK.
  • Learn how to recognize word fragments and smaller words you can build off of.
  • Easy tip – review the word search words, these are likely the words that are included in the scramble
  • Idea: use letters, letter magnets, etc., assemble the same letters, and play around with the order until you form the correct word

Hamilton Word Search

  • Look for double letters first. Those will typically pop off the page. So on this word search you might want to start with the word, AARON. Look for the double-As. 
  • Read each line of the word search box and see if any words are there. 
  • Look at the surrounding letters. So first identify the first letter of the word you are searching for. Then look at each letter around that first letter and see if any of those are the second letter you need. If not, move on to the next first letter you come to and repeat. 
  • Use your finger as you scan each line. This helps you keep your place and you are less likely to miss a word.
