See First Photos and Video of Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo in ‘Wicked’

Are you excited to meet the big screen version of Elphaba?

Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo, the two leads in the two-part Wicked movie, have released the first official images for us.

John M. Chu is directing the Wicked film based on the musical by Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman. Wicked is about Glinda and Elphaba’s frenemy-ship, with popular songs like “Popular,” “The Wizard and I,” and “Defying Gravity.”

Erivo’s photo as Elphaba shows her back and mostly hides her green skin. She’s wearing her witch’s hat and carrying her broom. Ariana Grande as Glinda ascends a staircase regally in the photo. She’s wearing pink, her favorite color, her hair is blonde, and we see the side of her face in the profile.

Full Cast list from Wikipedia:

The first Wicked movie will fly onto screens on November 27, 2024, and the second will be released on December 25, 2025.
