Will there be two Wicked films?

Yes! Director Jon M. Chu announced in May of last year that the creative team decided to split the lengthy stage musical into two parts.

News of the double feature was revealed via a social media post from Jon, he wrote: “As we prepared this production over the last year, it became increasingly clear that it would be impossible to wrestle the story of WICKED into a single film without doing some real damage to it.

“As we tried to cut songs or trim characters, those decisions began to feel like fatal compromises to the source material that has entertained us for so many years,” the director continued.

“So we decided to give ourselves a bigger canvas and make not just one Wicked movie but two!!!!”

Get ready for double the magic!
