Stephen Daldry Will Direct Universal Pictures’ Wicked Adaptation For A 2021 Holiday Release

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the feature-film adaptation of the musical phenomenon seen by more than 50 million fans around the world, arrives in theaters for the 2021 holiday season. The unforgettable characters and gravity-defying songs of the beloved hit The New York Times called “the defining musical of the decade” come to the big screen as the untold story of the Witches of Oz becomes the movie event that will change audiences for good.

Wicked will be brought to the screen by visionary director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) and producer Marc Platt (Into the Woods, Bridge of Spies). The screenplay is by Winnie Holzman (My So-Called Life), who also wrote the book for the three-time Tony-winning stage musical, based on the bestselling novel by Gregory Maguire. Music and lyrics are by three-time Oscar®-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin). Wicked is produced on Broadway by Platt, Universal Stage Productions, the Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone
