Wicked: Part One will be released a month ahead of schedule. Universal’s long-awaited adaptation of the iconic Broadway musical, directed by Jon M.
Chu, has moved from 25 December 2024 to 27 November 2024 to take advantage of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. “We are deep into production on ‘Wicked’ and everyday we get more and more excited to share with u the mischief we’ve been up to,” Chu wrote on Twitter. “So… We’ve decided to get it to you all a little earlier than planned.
A little Thanksgiving treat!” The epic musical fantasy is based on Gregory Maguire’s bestselling novel of the same name, as well as characters from L.
Frank Baum’s 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The latter was memorably adapted into the groundbreaking 1939 film, which starred Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale.
