Production on the movie, which will be split into two parts, is now underway. Nov. 27, 2024 is the tentative date for the theatrical premiere of the first half.
It became hard to fit the Wicked story into a single picture over the course of the past year as we planned the production, Chu said at the time. “As we tried to eliminate songs or trim characters, such choices started to feel like grave betrayals of the source material that had amused us all for so long.
We made the decision to expand our scope and produce two Wicked movies instead of simply one. Chu spoken. “With more room, we can tell Wicked’s story as it was meant to be told while giving these characters’ journeys even more depth and surprise,”
