This Is Not a Drill! The Wicked Movie Has an Official Release Date

It's happening, people! After much back and forth, Universal officially announced on Thursday that a Wicked movie is set for a Dec. 20, 2019, release date. Stephen Daldry will direct, while Marc Platt and Universal will work as producers, having originally produced the hit musical. Gregory Maguire, who wrote the book inspiration behind the musical, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, and composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz will also be involved. Not only did the Broadway show win three Tony Awards in 2004, but it also helped launched the careers of musical legends Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth, who recently joined forces for the production's Out of Oz series. Are you excited or what?
