Universal brings Wicked to CinemaCon, unveiling new footage of the musical adaptation to the public for the very first time as production continues.
The first Wicked movie footage has been screened for CinemaCon attendees and reveals fresh details about the long-awaited musical adaptation. Based on the hit Broadway musical of the same name, Wicked stars Cynthia Erivo as the future Wicked Witch of the West, Elphaba, years before she becomes the villain everyone knows and fears.
To cap off its CinemaCon presentation, Universal has debuted the very first footage from Wicked, and Screen Rant was on hand to watch it all unfold.
The footage, which is an extremely rough cut that very few have seen, reveals Erivo’s Elphaba as she is being taught by her new professor, Madame Morrible (Michelle Yeoh). Director Jon M. Chu also debuted a BTS reel offering a peek at the ongoing production.
