“I want people to see ‘Wicked’ and experience it in a way they’ve never experienced it before,” says director Jon M. Chu. “I want them to feel what I felt going into that theater for the first time. I want to make them laugh, to make them sing, to make them feel that after they’ve watched it they’ve been changed for good.”

“Wicked” is the untold story of the witches of Oz. The movie adaptation stars Emmy, Grammy and Tony winning powerhouse Cynthia Erivo as Elphaba, a young woman misunderstood because of her unusual green skin, who has yet to discover her true power, and Grammy-winning, multi-platinum recording artist and global superstar Ariana Grande as Glinda, a popular young woman gilded by privilege and ambition, who has yet to discover her true heart.
