In the Heights will arrive on UK and Irish cinemas on 25 June 2021.

The production has brought the UK and Ireland release date forwards by a month (it was previously expected on 30 July).


Jon M Chu's film, based on Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes's musical of the same name, tells the story of a Hispanic-American community threatened by gentrification. The film stars Anthony Ramos, Leslie Grace, Dascha Polanco, Stephanie Beatriz, Corey Hawkins, Melissa Barrera and more, with Lin-Manuel Miranda also appearing as Piragüero. It has a screenplay by Quiara Alegría Hudes (who also wrote the original book).
