Get excited, fellow Wicked fans, because we’re getting not one but *two* movies coming exclusively to theaters.
Earlier today, director Jon M. Chu posted a special news update pertaining to the movie adaptation of the beloved Broadway musical, Wicked. In the open letter (posted to his official Twitter account), he revealed plans for the highly anticipated film.
First, he thanked fans for all of their support of the upcoming movie. Then, he shared that there will be two film installments of the mythical story. Chu shared that they simply couldn’t “wrestle the story of Wicked into a single film without doing some real damage to it.” He went on to say that they decided to “give ourselves a bigger canvas” and make two movies instead.
