Original musical writer Winnie Holzman and lyricist Stephen Schwartz continue to write for the film, produced by Marc Platt (‘La La Land’), in two parts, to be released on December 25, 2024 and December 25, 2025 Northern America, respectively.

‘Wicked’ follows two very different girls – Elphaba, who is naturally green-skinned, has a brilliant mind and a fiery spirit but is ostracized at home and at school, and Glinda, who is classically beautiful, ambitious, extremely driven and popular, who becomes friends.

They struggle with opposing personalities and views, compete for the same object of affection, respond to the corrupt government of the wizard kingdom, and eventually Elphaba falls from the glory side.
