Great news for film enthusiasts! Universal Pictures premiered the trailer for Wicked during this year’s Super Bowl. The movie, based on Gregory Maguire’s book, features classic Wizard of Oz characters Glinda and Elphaba as college friends. Glinda is popular and wealthy, while Elphaba, known for her green skin and magical powers, faces ostracism. Despite their differences, the two develop a close bond. The film stars Cynthia Erivo as Elphaba and Ariana Grande as Glinda, adding to the excitement with their talent. Alongside the evident queer themes in Wicked, the movie boasts a cast filled with LGBTQ+ talent. The openly queer actress Cynthia Erivo takes on the role of Elphaba, a character admired by many young fans who feel different from societal norms. Jonathan Bailey from Fellow Travelers portrays the charming Fiyero, while Bowen Yang from Saturday Night Live embodies Pfannee, a new addition to Glinda’s circle of friends. Get ready to join the enthusiastic LGBTQ+ community in theaters when Wicked premieres on November 27, 2024, a month ahead of its original release date. The film will be divided into two parts, with the second installment hitting screens on November 26, 2025. This split release aims to provide more spotlight to Nessarose, a character often overlooked in the musical.
