Wicked is one of the most beloved musicals to ever hit Broadway, and its live-action adaptation is finally coming our way this year. Universal gave us a taste of things to come with a brand-new trailer, that sees Cynthia Erivo and Ariana Grande heading to the Land of Oz.

Wicked chronicles the adventures of two young witches who forge an unlikely but profound friendship during their time at Shiz University— Elphaba (Erivo), who’s misunderstood because of her unusual green skin, and Glinda (Grande), Elphaba’s privileged and ambitious roommate.

Their lives will take different paths after they meet the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, who sets them on a course to fulfill their destinies as Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

“Glinda’s unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power, while Elphaba’s determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences on her future,” reads Universal’s official logline.

In addition to Erivo and Grande in the lead roles, the star-studded cast of Wicked also includes Jonathan Bailey, Ethan Slater, Jeff Goldblum, Michelle Yeoh, Bowen Yang, and Peter Dinklage. It will hit the theaters just in time for Thanksgiving, on November 27, while Part Two is scheduled for the 2025 release.
