Are you ready for one of the most iconic villain origin stories to hit the big screen? The Wicked movie is officially on the way.

Ariana Grande and Tony-winner Cynthia Erivo will lead the upcoming films as witches Glinda and Elphaba, respectively, and will be directed by Jon M. Chu of Crazy Rich Asians and In The Heights fame.

After much teasing, the first official trailer for Wicked, which you can watch above, arrived on May 15, 2025. The trailer shows us Elphaba and Glinda's first meeting, with a snippet of their version of the ever-so-popular “Popular” playing in the background. On the song front, we also get a glimpse of “Defying Gravity” while seeing the change in dynamics between the two witches as well as the introduction of the Wizard.
