One of the most beloved Broadway musicals is becoming a movie, and fans couldn’t be happier! Growing up, I loved watching “The Wizard of Oz.” And when “Wicked” made its debut to the stage, my mom, sister and I scrambled to see it.
Based off the novel by Gregory Maguire, “Wicked” is the prequel to the Wizard of Oz. It tells the story of the Wicked Witch of the West and how she became wicked.
The original broadway production featured stars like Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel. I cannot wait to see who will play Glinda and Elphaba and belt out classics like “Defying Gravity” and “Popular.”
The Hollywood Reporter states the movie’s release date will be in December of 2019. My popcorn and Swedish fish are ready—I can’t wait!
