“Wicked”: Here’s the Trailer for Part 1 of the Much Anticipated Musical — Oscar Contender?


“Wicked” Part 1 is coming on November 27th.

The film adaptation of the incredibly successful Broadway musical is much anticipated. Universal actually broke the show into two pieces for movie release.

There’s a big all star cast. You know we’ll be seeing one of these people — probably Cynthia Erivo — at the Oscars. Plus an original song, and lots of production nominations.
