The Wicked movie is an adaption of the smash musical that first opened on Broadway in 2003 and is still running. Wicked is a prequel to The Wizard of Oz, and tells the story of Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch. Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth originated the roles of Elphaba and Glinda on Broadway.

The film will hit theaters on Nov. 27, and it'll chronicle the first half of the musical. A second Wicked movie finishing out the story is scheduled to be released a year later in November 2025.
