Wicked trailer: Cynthia Erivo and Ariana Grande star in spellbinding Part One of musical

The long-awaited movie adaptation of the award-winning Wicked stage musical is almost here.

No doubt hoping to defy gravity at the Oscars, the first film of the two-part movie epic is set to hit cinemas this November.

And today the first full trailer has landed showcasing what fans can expect alongside a new synopsis which reads: “Wicked, the untold story of the witches of Oz, stars Emmy, Grammy and Tony winning powerhouse Cynthia Erivo (Harriet, Broadway’s The Color Purple) as Elphaba, a young woman, misunderstood because of her unusual green skin, who has yet to discover her true power, and Grammy-winning, multi-platinum recording artist and global superstar Ariana Grande as Glinda, a popular young woman, gilded by privilege and ambition, who has yet to discover her true heart.”

The synopsis adds: “The two meet as students at Shiz University in the fantastical Land of Oz and forge an unlikely but profound friendship. Following an encounter with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Glinda’s unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power, while Elphaba’s determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences on her future. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfill their destinies as Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.”

Wicked hits cinemas on November 28, 2024 and Part Two follows on November 28, 2025.
