Movie magic was in the air this Super Bowl Sunday with the highly anticipated premiere of the trailer for the big-screen adaptation of Broadway’s sensation ‘Wicked’. With just a sneak peek, anticipation is already sky high for what promises to be one of this year’s most spellbinding cinematic events.
Director Jon M. Chu has assembled a stellar cast to breathe new life into the iconic story. Glinda bubbles to the screen through pop superstar Ariana Grande; the mysterious Elphaba comes alive under the powerful vocals of Tony winner Cynthia Erivo. With showstopping performances rounded out by screen legends like Michelle Yeoh and scene stealers like Jeff Goldblum, the starpower will be otherworldly.
Arriving November 27th, just in time for the holidays, the two-part adaptation promises a magical twist on the classic ‘Wizard of Oz’ story. With the sweeping score of the smash-hit Broadway original, the film dives deep into the novel’s exploration of good versus evil. The result is sure to challenge perceptions and dazzle imaginations on the silver screen.
Heading production, Marc Platt and David Stone look to recreate the phenomenon they launched on stage in 2003. Since becoming the second highest-grossing show ever on Broadway, the spell has only grown stronger. As Grande shared on social media upon wrapping her role, her gratitude was only exceeded by her soggy eyelashes.
In the leadup to gameday, speculation swirled over what big surprises were in store this Super Bowl Sunday. With 30-second spots going for $7 million, the stage was set for major Hollywood names to create buzz. Adding extra intrigue was music icon Taylor Swift’s very public support for the Chiefs, sparking rumors over her budding relationship with tight end Travis Kelce. But once the curtain rose on ‘Wicked,’ it became clear a true spectacle was brewing.
When ‘Wicked’ arrives in theaters, it’s sure to be far more than just a movie – it’s poised to be nothing short of a cultural event, with all the sweep, splendor and magic that only Hollywood can conjure. Buckle up for what promises to be the cinematic ride of the year.
