About Wicked

The holidays are about to get Wicked. The record-shattering, Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon becomes a two-part, gravity-defying, generation-defining cinematic event. Wicked Part One flies into theaters Nov. 27, 2024. Wicked Part Two lands Nov. 26, 2025.

Wicked, the untold story of the witches of Oz, stars Emmy, Grammy and Tony winning powerhouse Cynthia Erivo (Harriet, Broadway’s The Color Purple) as Elphaba, a defiant social outcast who has yet to discover her true power, and Grammy-winning, multi-platinum recording artist and global superstar Ariana Grande (Hairspray Live!, Don’t Look Up), as Glinda, a popular young woman, gilded by privilege and ambition, who has yet to discover her true heart.

As the two women forge an unlikely sisterhood, they will empower each other in ways that neither foresees. But as dark forces of prejudice and oppression loom on the horizon, the choices they make will separate them, and will set them on different destinies that will change them, and Oz, for good.

The film stars Oscar® winner Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All at Once, Crazy Rich Asians) as Madame Morrible; Jonathan Bailey (Bridgerton, Crashing) as Fiyero; Tony nominee Ethan Slater (Broadway’s Spongebob Squarepants, Fosse/Verdon) as Boq; Marissa Bode, in her feature film debut, as Nessarose; and Emmy nominee and pop culture icon Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic World franchise, The Grand Budapest Hotel) as The Wizard.

The all-star cast includes Emmy nominee Bowen Yang (Saturday Night Live) as Pfannee, Bronwyn James (Harlots) as ShenShen and Tony nominee Keala Settle (The Greatest Showman) as a new character created for the film, Miss Coddle.

Directed by electrifying filmmaker Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians, In the Heights), Wicked Part Two is the second chapter of a two-part immersive, cultural spectacular.

Wicked is produced by Marc Platt (La La Land, The Little Mermaid), and by Tony winner David Stone (Kimberly Akimbo), with whom Platt produced the blockbuster Wicked stage musical. The executive producers are David Nicksay, Stephen Schwartz and Jared LeBoff.

Based on the bestselling novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked is adapted for the screen by the stage production’s book writer Winnie Holzman and by legendary Academy Award® winning composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz. The Broadway stage musical is produced by Universal Stage Productions, Marc Platt, the Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.
