In the Heights has finally arrived in theaters, and many Netflix subscribers wonder when the musical drama from Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is coming to the streaming service.
The film is based on the exceptional stage musical of the same name that was created by Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes, who also wrote the screenplay for the musical motion picture. In the Heights has a magnificent score on Rotten Tomatoes and has received universal acclaim according to Metacritic.
The heartfelt and enthralling musical tells the story of a bodega owner with big dreams who saves every cent he earns working in order to one day make those dreams a reality. The entire affair stars Anthony Ramos, Olga Merediz, Corey Hawkins, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera and Jimmy Smits.
Everything about this feature seems like a worthwhile endeavor, to say the least, and fans of the genre, as well as the talented individuals involved, should definitely not miss out on In the Heights. It’s really not shocking at all to hear subscribers out there want to know when the exciting flick will touch down on the streaming service Netflix.
When is In the Heights coming to Netflix?
It doesn’t seem like In the Heights will be dancing its way over to Netflix anytime soon. Right now, it’s in theaters and available to stream at no additional charge for subscribers on HBO Max.
Like Wonder Woman 1984 and Little Things, other films that have done this end up back on HBO Max once it was time to become part of the subscription streaming service market after the theatrical window has closed. It is probably safe to assume In the Heights will do the same and not be able to be viewed on Netflix.
While this is not ideal at all for subscribers hoping to tap their toes and sing along with In the Heights, there are several excellent options to choose from on the streaming service. Netflix has titles like Work It, The Prom, Selena: The Series, Over the Moon and more that should be high on everyone’s watchlist.
