“We’re immersed in the making of Wicked and every day we get more and more excited to share with you the shenanigans we’ve been up to. So… We’ve decided to deliver the movie to you all a little earlier than planned. A little treat from the day of action thanks,” he wrote.
A prologue to The Wizard of Oz, Wicked tells the story of everything up to Dorothy’s arrival in Oz. In its original Broadway run, Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth lived the friends-turned-enemies Elphaba, who would become the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda, the Good Witch.
