β€œIt’s been wonderful making magic with you πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š,” Erivo commented on the post. Chu posted two enigmatic stills without giving away too many details. The first image showed Erivo’s Elphaba getting ready to take off on her broom as she glanced away from the camera while wearing a dark cloak and pointed cap.

In the second image, Grande is seen dressed as Glinda and ascending a lengthy flight of stairs with blonde locks and a bubblegum pink ball gown.

What is known about the planned movies is that they are based on both the successful Broadway play and Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.
