Sex & Nudity

  • Three songs in Act II reference a character's affair. Nothing graphic shown or addressed.
  • Sexual suggestive dialogue is said at various times, some including words like "intercourse" and "deflower." Hamilton is playfully referred to as "the tomcat."

Violence & Gore

  • The battle scenes are not portrayed as violent as they are only expressed through dance.
  • As the film is of a theatrical production, all of the war and battles scenes are minimally depicted and mostly narrated. Nothing more than blood and wounding are described. No prop blood is ever used.
  • Historically accurate prop guns are used. Shooting is represented only through sound effects and a dancer miming a slow motion bullet.
  • Dueling is established as common (and legal in some situations) and occurs between several pairs of characters, major and minor.
  • No blood when violence occurs, very family friendly


  • Swearing infrequently occurs throughout the musical in 3 songs. However, one of the songs (Yorktown) mute the use of the "f" word, due to this being a Disney release. There is an implied "f" word during the song "Say No To This" but is never finished being said.
