The Wicked movie is on its way, and we’ve just received some new announcements. The movie, produced by Universal Pictures will be released in two parts, with the first one expected on Christmas, 2024.
Wicked, The Movie – what do we know so far
Cynthia Erivo and Ariana Grande will play the titular heroes Elphaba and Glinda. Jon M. Chu, famous for G. I. Joe: Retaliation, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, and Step Up 2: The streets will serve as a director. The second movie is expected to be out on December 25, 2025.
Stephen Schwartz, who penned the music and lyrics to the original Broadway show, is adapting the “Wicked” screenplay with Winnie Holzman. Marc Platt, who produced the Broadway musical, is producing the film.
Wicked is one of the pillars of modern Broadway. The show premiered all the way back in 2003 at the Gershwin Theater and goes as strong as ever.
In its original Broadway run, Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth portrayed frenemies Elphaba, who would become the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda the Good Witch.

The largest theater on Broadway, the Gershwin is located at 222 West 51st Street. It has a seating capacity of 1,933.
One wheelchair-accessible restroom is available on the second floor, but there are also restrooms featuring wide stalls in the male and female restrooms on the fourth floor.
