Deadline shared the update that Trevor: the Musical will make its streaming debut exclusively on Disney+ next month on June 24, 2022.

The filmed version of the Off-Broadway production focuses on the 13-year-old title character in a coming of age story inspired by the 1995 film, Trevor. In addition to the musical production, the original film was also the inspiration behind the Trevor Project, the largest nonprofit organization in the world focused on LGBTQ+ suicide prevention and mental health awareness.

As musicals continue to make their way onto streaming platforms, and especially given the success of past musicals debuting and continuing to gain viewership on Disney+ we certainly hope filmed musicals are something we continue to see more of in the future.

Following its world premiere in Chicago, Trevor the Musical debuted for a brief stint Off-Broadway in November 2021 (running through December) and the musical will soon make its streaming debut this summer on June 24, 2022.
