I never saw the stage musical, so I have no idea what it's about.

Never fear, R5. Many said the same thing after reading the original novel. Brilliant premise, but a crashing bore to read. Winnie Holzman's stage adaptation was truly marvelous. She managed to retain everything that was good from the novel, and bury the rest. I don't know if the filmmakers used her (or her work) but they would be absolute fools not to. Her libretto is the reason that show is still running. Schwartz's score is fine, but it's the story and storytelling that made the show a sensation.

Who is that playing the Wicked Witch?

I want to say Jennifer Hudson, but I don't think it's her.

Why do their faces look distorted?

It almost looks like CGI.

Is Adele Dazeem in this?

I can't stand Ariana Grande.

She and that Michelle Yo bitch seem to be in everything nowdays.

Enough of them!

British actress who frightened Mandy Patinkin and got a Broadway musical shut down over a non-existent racial issue.

She looks a lot like Jennifer Hudson.

Jennifer is tall, about 5 feet 11 inches, so I was wondering why she was matching up to shorty little Ariana Grande's height.

Jennifer Hudson might have made a good Wicked Witch.

Aren't they releasing this in two parts?

No, R16.

That's Dune.

Why is the trailer out now, if it doesn't open until Thanksgiving?

It's way too early.

No, r18. FYI, both deal with witchcraft though.

Obviously it's not the movie for you, r21. Personally, I'm not into westerns.

I refuse to watch any movie with that ugly Bowen creature in it.

Hollywood his trying to shove his DEI twat down our throats, and I won't have it.

He can go fuck himself.

Is the blonde girl kind of a Barbie like character? She seems kind of snobbish and spoiled.

Did they mix Grandes speaking voice on purpose sounding like a speed up mouse?

by Anonymousreply 33May 15, 2024 9:40 PM

It seems like they did a lot of digital alterations with the actors' voices and faces.

The trailer looked like a mix of real life and CGI.

It's a freaking fantasy world, so what? This isn't Les Miz.

I will catch it when it streams for Jonathan Bailey and Michelle Yeoh alone.

Can Cynthia Erivo sing?

by Anonymousreply 38May 16, 2024 12:22 AM

I posted this in the other thread: The show itself is terrible. I saw it with the original Broadway cast and it was just meh even with Joel Grey as the Wizard. The movie will end with "Defying Gravity" just like act one of the show. Act 2 was slow. For some reason the songs just don't resonate. When it opened in San Francisco pre Broadway it was 4 hours long. The book is so different and worth a read. The sequels have gay content too. Elphaba was a terrorist and the wizard was a dictator and caused genocide with the animal people and the munchkins. In the books Glinda is barely a character on the periphery. Joe Mantello has been collecting a big paycheck all these years so he can have his twinks.

I don't think there has been a musical with really good songs, since LaLa Land.

And before that, Hairspray.

No, “Wicked” is also a two-part film.

“Wicked: Part 2” will be released November 26, 2025.

She's trying to sound like Kristen Chenoweth. And pretty successfully.

You know, I wasn't expecting much, but that's a solid trailer.

it will follow in the tradition of stage successes transferred to film: Rent, The Producers, Cats, In the Heights, The Phantom of the Opera, Rock of Ages, The Color Purple . . .

I would love to have seen Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis reprise their roles as Glinda and the WWW.

They're both so gorgeous.

I also think what we hear of “Defying Gravity” sounds great. Cynthia Erivo has a lot more technical control than Adele Dazeem.
