Wicked was a smash hit when it came to Broadway the day before Halloween in 2003. It’s one of the longest running shows in Broadway history and holds one of my absolute favorite musical soundtracks.
Fans have been hoping for the show to be adapted into a movie for a long while and their wish has finally been granted. Universal Pictures has set a release date for the adaptation of December 20th 2019. While there’s no word of whether or not Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth (the original Elphaba and Galinda), we can only hope that they’ll be playing the older versions of their characters. It’s only right. Hopefully the petitions for them to star in the movie will be coming soon…along with the petition for Aaron Tveit to play Fiyero (hint, hint Wicked fans).
