The Tony-winning Broadway musical Wicked, based on Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, will be adapted into a movie by Universal, which was first announced back in 2016.

Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo were chosen to play significant roles in November 2021. Jeff Goldblum confirmed his position as the Wizard while making fun of Grande and Erivo for being “very good” in their roles during a March 2023 visit on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
