A Peek at the Wicked Film

The Broadway musical Wicked is being made into a movie. Two movies, actually, as Wicked: Part One is scheduled for release in November 2024, to be followed by a second movie planned for a Christmas Day release in 2025. The story follows the life of Elphaba Thropp, who eventually becomes the Wicked Witch of the West who we are familiar with from the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Cynthia Erivo stars as Elphelba, while Ariana Grande plays Glinda, the Good Witch of the North. The movie will also star Jeff Goldblum, Michelle Yeoh, and Bowen Yang. Wicked is now filming in a village near East Buckinghamshire in the UK.

Monday, director Jon M. Chu posted two photos from the production, which the internet reacted to by lamenting they are too dark and hard to see. Is the entire film going to look like this?

No, it is not. Today, images from the set have been posted, featuring Arianna Grande as Glinda. They are quite colorful, and show Grande in a light pink ball gown and a tiara as they film a musical number. We are certain more photos from the shoot will follow, whether sanctioned or not.
