‘Wicked’ Movie Gets 2021 Holiday Season Release Date

Wicked Feature Adaptation Moved to December 2021

Wicked Feature Adaptation Moved to December 2021

Universal previous year pulled Wicked off its proposed 2020 release date and replaced it with Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper's curious Cats adaptation, starring Taylor Swift.

Universal Pictures has announced that the Wicked feature adaptation of the blockbuster Broadway musical will now open on December 22, 2021.

But Conley closed the first half with a trio of 3-pointers in the closing minute to help Memphis to a 66-54 lead at the break. Gasol, a three-time All-Star, is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game in 2018-19.

Winnie Holzman and three-time Oscar-winning composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz, who adapted the musical from Gregory Maguire's novel, will be collaborating on the screenplay adaptation. However, that is now when the film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats will be arriving (December 20, 2019 - FYI). The movie version will open five days after Fox launches its "Avatar 3" along with an untitled Disney live-action movie, and an untitled Warner Bros. animated feature. Wicked. Except this one is a movie, rather than a Broadway show. An alternate retelling of L. Frank Baum's classic The Wizard of Oz, Wicked follows two opposing witches-Elphaba and Glinda the Good- from their first meeting in college to Elphaba's ultimate downfall and transformation into the Wicked Witch of the West. Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth originated the lead roles on Broadway, and the show is packed with tremendous songs, an emotional story, and eye-popping set design. But with Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) in the director's chair and Marc Platt (Into the Woods, Bridge of Spies) producing, the Wicked movie seems like it's in good hands. Wicked has spawned several global productions and garnered three Tony Awards and six Drama Desk Awards, while its original cast album received a Grammy Award.

Wicked flies into theaters on December 22, 2021.
