Do individuals emerge as evil? This is the query raised in the freshest preview for Wicked, Universal Pictures’ highly anticipated version of the Tony Award-winning stage production.

Cynthia Erivo takes on the role of Elphaba, a young lady with verdant skin who enrolls at Shiz University in the Land of Oz. Shortly after her arrival at the institution, Elphaba encounters the perky and admired student, Glinda, portrayed by pop vocalist Ariana Grande. Collectively, Elphaba and Glinda build an improbable bond. Following their encounter with The Remarkable Wizard of Oz, the lives of the pair are forever altered, as Elphaba and Glinda commence their transitions into the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, respectively.

The mesmerizing clips offer a glimpse of two of Wicked’s most renowned musical pieces: Popular and Defying Gravity. View the authorized preview below.

In addition to Erivo and Grande, Wicked features Michelle Yeoh as Madame Morrible, Jonathan Bailey as Fiyero, Ethan Slater as Boq, Marissa Bode as Nessarose, Jeff Goldblum as the Wizard of Oz, Bowen Yang as Pfannee, Bronwyn James as ShenShen, Keala Settle as Miss Coddle, and Peter Dinklage as Dr. Dillamond.

Jon M. Chu, the filmmaker of Crazy Rich Asians and In the Heights, helms Wicked from a screenplay by Winnie Holzman. The line-up of producers includes Marc Platt and David Stone.

Derived from Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel bearing the same title, Wicked is founded on the musical by Holzman and Stephen Schwartz. The flick portrays the occurrences prior to Dorothy Gale’s arrival in The Wizard of Oz. The theatrical production on Broadway ranks as the second-highest-grossing musical show ever, trailing only behind The Lion King.

Wicked marks the initial installment in a two-part interpretation. Wicked premieres in cinemas on November 27, 2024. Wicked: Part Two is slated for launch on November 27, 2025.
