Big-Screen Adaptation of the Broadway Musical “WICKED” Unleashes First Teaser Trailer

After two decades as one of the most beloved and enduring musicals on the stage, "Wicked" finally makes its long-awaited journey to the big screen promising to be a spectacular, generation-defining cinematic event this year. Catch the trailer below:

"Wicked", the untold story of the witches of Oz, stars Emmy, Grammy and Tony winning powerhouse Cynthia Erivo as Elphaba, a young woman misunderstood because of her unusual green skin, who has yet to discover her true power, and Grammy-winning, multi-platinum recording artist and global superstar Ariana Grande as Glinda, a popular young woman gilded by privilege and ambition, who has yet to discover her true heart. The two meet as students at Shiz University in the fantastical Land of Oz and forge an unlikely but profound friendship. Following an encounter with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. 

The film also stars Oscar® winner Michelle Yeoh as Shiz University’s regal headmistress Madame Morrible; Jonathan Bailey as Fiyero, a roguish and carefree prince; Tony nominee Ethan Slater as Boq, an altruistic Munchkin student; Marissa Bode in her feature-film debut as Nessarose, Elphaba’s favored sister; and pop culture icon Jeff Goldblum as the legendary Wizard of Oz.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Jon M. Chu (known for two outstanding film with "Crazy Rich Asians" and "In the Heights"), "Wicked" is the first chapter of a two-part immersive, cultural celebration. "Wicked" opens in cinemas November 27, while "Wicked: Part Two" is scheduled to arrive in theaters in 2025.
