‘Wicked’ Movie Set to hit Big Screens in 2019


Every few years one Broadway show really breaks away from being just a play and becomes something more. While right now that play is definitely the Tony award winning Hamilton, just a few years ago that play was Wicked. Starring the voice of Elsa, Idina Menzel, and Kristin Chenoweth, this award winning musical comes from the perspective of the Wicked mv5bmtm5mzu3nzi5mf5bml5banbnxkftztcwotc4oti2mg-_v1_uy317_cr120214317_al_Witch of the West before she was wicked. Menzel played the Wicked Witch and Chenoweth played Glinda the Good witch, both characters being young witches in college.

The adaptation is set to be directed by Stephen Daldry. This is likely one of the better choices to have direct this adaptation because this his not his first movie musical. Daldry directed the film adaption of Billy Elliot in 2000. No actors are currently attached to the project but the movie isn’t set to come out for another three years, so we have time.

Are you excited? Do you think they’ll bring back Idina Menzel to play Elphaba? Talk about it in the comments and don’t forget to like, share, and follow Sprom for more news on the Wicked movie and other things in the world of movie news.

Wicked comes to theaters some time in 2019.
