Cynthia Erivo Goes Green in Universal Pictures' New Musical Film "Wicked" | Trailer

TV & Film

Tony Award-winning actress Cynthia Erivo is going green in the trailer for Universal Pictures' highly anticipated musical film “Wicked”.


In the trailer which debuted earlier this month, we got our first look at Erivo who stars as Elphaba (The Wicked Witch of the West) in the film alongside Ariana Grande, who plays her nemesis Glinda The Good Witch. 



“Wicked” follows the unlikely friendship that emerges between Elphaba and Glinda, two clashing witches in the land of Oz.  Things take a turn when Elphaba is wrongfully cast as a wicked witch as she seeks to expose the fraudulent, corrupt Wizard who rules over Oz.



The John Chu directed film is the first of the two-part film series based on the 2004  Broadway show of the same name which is based on Gregory Maguire’s novel, “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.”



In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Erivo praised the decision to split the film into two parts. 


"What's wonderful about the show is that you get an insight into why this woman becomes the Wicked Witch of the West, but you have only three hours to do it in," she said. "With us, you have two movies."


Joining Erivo and Grande in the film is Jonathan Bailey as Fiyero, Jeff Goldblum as the Wizard, Marissa Bode as Nessarose, Bowen Yang as Pfannee, Keala Settle as Miss Coddle, Ethan Slater as Boq, and Michelle Yeoh as Madame Morrible.


Wicked is set to hit theaters on November 27, 2024, with the second part of the film slated to debut in 2025.
