The movie "Wicked" is based on the Broadway musical of the same name. Director Jon M. Chu gave fans their first look at the movie's main characters. In a Twitter post, Ariana Grande is seen as Glinda in a pink dress and blonde hair, while Cynthia Erivo is seen as Elphaba in the classic black witch outfit.
I’ve already been changed for good by these two women … #CynthiaErivo & #ArianaGrande as the Witches of Oz. They will lift your spirits, break ur heart, and leave you speechless with their voices. So excited to introduce you to our world … So much more to come.- Director Jon M. Chu
"Wicked" is based on Gregory Maguire's 1995 book "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West," which puts the Wicked Witch of the West in a modern setting. The book's music and lyrics were written by Stephen Schwartz, and Winnie Holzman wrote the book. The musical is a huge hit on Broadway. Right now, it is the fourth longest-running Broadway show ever.
"Wicked" is a prequel to "The Wizard of Oz." It tells what happened before Dorothy walked down the famous yellow brick road. It also tells the story of how Elphaba, who becomes the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda, who is known as the Good Witch, became friends.
It also explains how the Wicked Witch got that hat with the pointy top. Jonathan Bailey is playing Fiyero, Jeff Goldblum is playing the Wizard, Michelle Yeoh is playing Madame Morrible, and Ethan Slater is playing Boq.
Stephen Schwartz wrote the music and lyrics for the Broadway show, and he and Winnie Holzman are adapting the script for the movie. Popular songs like "Defying Gravity" and "Popular" will be in the two-part movie version, but at least two new songs will also be added.
A "Wicked" movie has been in the works for a very long time. The adaptation was supposed to be a single movie, but last year Chu said that the story needed two full-length movies instead.
As we prepared the production over the last year, it became impossible to wrestle the story of ‘Wicked’ into a single film without doing some real damage to it.- Director Jon M. Chu
As we tried to cut songs or trim characters, those decisions began to feel like fatal compromises to the source material that has entertained us all for so many years. We decided to give ourselves a bigger canvas and make not just one ‘Wicked’ movie but two! With more space, we can tell the story of ‘Wicked’ as it was meant to be told while bringing even more depth and surprise to the journeys for these beloved characters.- Director Jon M. Chu
The first "Wicked" movie will come out on November 27, 2024, and the second one will come out on December 25, 2025.
If you want to get the 'Wicked' movie first look at the western sky. Jon M. Chu has posted first-look photos from the set of the highly anticipated movie on all of his social media accounts.
In the dark photos, Erivo is wearing the witch hat and broom that are typical of her character, and Grande is wearing a beautiful pink dress as she walks up a staircase. The movie is being made right now, and it will be split into two parts. The first half is set to come out in theaters on November 27, 2024.
