Wicked : Part One Movie is coming to theaters on Thanksgiving 2024

Universal Pictures announced yesterday that Wicked: Part One is coming to theaters on Thanksgiving of 2024. That date places the film’s release one month before the previously announced Christmas 2024. This film adaptation of the stage musical has been highly anticipated. Wicked transformed Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth into household names and helped spawn staged versions of the musical all over the globe.

Wicked centers around the relationship between Glinda (The Good Witch) and Elphaba (The Wicked Witch of the West). Wicked is based on a book by Gregory Maguire entitled Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. Debuting in 2003, Wicked has become one of the most popular shows on Broadway. This film adaptation will encapsulate the staged version and add two new musical numbers explicitly created for the film.

Wicked: Part 1 features Cynthia Erivo and Ariana Grande as Elphaba and Glinda. Jonathan Bailey will play Fiyero, Jeff Goldblum will feature as the Wizard of Oz, with Michelle Yeoh portraying Madame Morrible.

The decision to move Wicked: Part 1 up to Thanksgiving removed it from direct competition with blockbusters like Avatar 3 and family-friendly Sonic the Hedgehog 3 during Christmas. This is working on the assumption that Avatar 3 stays on schedule and releases for Christmas 2024 as promised.
