After much waiting, long awaited Wicked The trailer, which you can watch below, premiered at the Super Bowl. There will be a movie based on the beloved Broadway show (which was based on Gregory Maguire’s very dark novel) divided into two parts, Part one will release on November 27. The first trailer, a minute-long teaser, shows clips of Elphaba and G[a]Linda, played by Cynthia Erivo and Ariana Grande respectively, set to a sample of “Defying Gravity”. It stars Michelle Yeoh as Madame Morrible, Jonathan Bailey as Fiyero, and Jeff Goldblum as the Sorcerer. The SpongeBob sidekick (Ethan Slater) isn’t in it, but I didn’t expect to see Boze or Nessa’s characters in the teaser for the first part of the musical, since their story is a big catalyst in Act II.

The first teaser trailer for the film musical Wicked: Part One debuted during Super Bowl Sunday, featuring Cynthia Erivo as the witch Elphaba and Ariana Grande as the bubbly Glinda.

Directed by Jon M. Chu, who brought In the Heights from stage to screen in 2021, Wicked will be a two-part adaptation of Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman’s Tony-winning Broadway show. Part two is set to release on November 26, 2025.

A prequel to the events of The Wizard of Oz, Wicked is the origin story of “a green-skinned woman”, states the film’s logline, who “becomes the Wicked Witch of the West.” Its source material is Gregory Maguire’s hit 1995 novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.

Erivo, 37, stars as the green-skinned heroine and her classmate-turned-best friend Grande, 30, alongside Jonathan Bailey as Fiyero, Jeff Goldblum as the Sorcerer, Marisa Bode as Nessarose, Bowen Yang as Pfannie. , and Keela Settle. Miss Caudle, Ethan Slater as Bok, and Michelle Yeoh as Madame Morrible.

“This movie has everything: huge musical numbers, big action pieces,” Chu told the audience when presenting first-look footage at CinemaCon 2023 in April. “And using a classic story that you all know, The Wizard of Oz. After all, it’s not really about those things. It’s about change and [how] “It’s important for things to get better.”

The original Broadway cast of the musical included Kristin Chenoweth as Glinda and Idina Menzel as Elphaba. The latter earned the production one of three Tony Awards for Leading Actress in a Musical.

While it’s shooting in 2022, Erivo told Entertainment Tonight that the Wicked film adaptation “will be different than anything you’ve ever seen before.”

He further added, “I think we will enjoy the magic of it. We’re going to try to put our take on what we already know and show you a story about two women [who] They are sisters.”

I think the teaser itself is good. I don’t know guys. I’m curious to hear what you all think. Although I have no doubt that Erivo will be a fantastic Elphaba – she looks great in the trailer! – And Yeoh will bring it As for Madame M, I fully admit that I have my doubts about Ariana’s Glinda. It’s not acting, it’s a general lack of tone and diction. We didn’t get much from him in the teaser, so I’ll hold off on judging until we see the full trailer. I just don’t want another one russell crowe status, But yeah, I don’t know how I feel about this whole thing overall. Also, I completely forgot that there would be two parts. I’m guessing they split up the movies to suit each acting role?

And now, if I may, I’d like to leave a story about the time my friend and I went to NYC on a snowy day and we got orchestra tickets to see Wicked at a reasonable price. It was Friday, January 7, 2005. That performance was also the last full show performed by Idina Menzel. fall through trap door During the following performance, the day before she was to end her run as OG Elphaba. We also stood outside the stage door and met Joey McIntyre. It boggles my mind that this happened almost 20 years ago. What I mean to say here is that I have high hopes that this film will be good.
