- Rather than being a traditional adaptation of the musical for the big screen, such as Les Misérables (2012), West Side Story (1961), or Cats (2019), this is instead a filmed version of the stage show with the original Broadway cast performing the roles. The recording was filmed in June of 2016, just before several key members of the original cast, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, ended their run in the show.
- Filmed over the course of three days in June 2016. It started by filming a live Sunday matinee performance with cameras in the audience, after which the cast and crew spent the rest of the day and evening filming close-ups, dolly shots and crane shots. Filming continued all day Monday (normally the cast's day off) with more close-ups and Steadicam footage. More filming took place on Tuesday morning, before shooting another live performance on Tuesday evening, with cameras again in the audience but in different positions. Lin-Manuel Miranda said, "it was basically a three-day film shoot with the best-rehearsed cast in the history of the movies, 'cause we'd all been doing the show for a year at this point."
- Ron Chernow, who wrote the Hamilton biography that inspired Lin-Manuel Miranda in the first place, was initially skeptical about making a musical from Hamilton's life, but changed his mind after his first meeting with Miranda, who stressed that he wanted Hamilton to be taken seriously by historians and asked Chernow to help him develop the script. Chernow said his skepticism melted the moment he heard Miranda's first song, and was completely on board afterwards. He's supposedly seen the show dozens of times, always as a paying customer.
