Everything we know about The Wicked Movie

The filming of Bad was first announced by Universal in 2016 and since then more news has been slowly being shared about the production. In addition to Erivo and Grande, who were the first actors attached to the project, John M. Chu recently announced that: Bridgerton star Jonathan Bailey joins the cast as Fiyero, the idealistic love interest of both Elphaba and Glinda. While there’s no word on the rest of the cast, if the number of A-list celebrities who auditioned without making the cut is anything to be missed, the film is sure to be a star-studded affair.

Although the announcement that the adjustment of Bad was going to be split into two parts got mixed reactions from fans, showing how committed Chu is to preserving all the elements that made the original musical so iconic. In addition, many of the creative voices behind the original musical will have a hand in ensuring that the integrity and magic of the Broadway show lives on in the film. Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman, who co-wrote the music and lyrics for Bad, wrote the screenplay for the film and Marc Platt returns as producer. Schwartz previously shared that the film will also feature new music, with three new songs and one written for the original production but cut. Or the filming of Bad meets the high expectations attached to it will only become apparent when it is released in two parts on consecutive Christmas holidays, in December 2024 and December 2025.
