The ‘Wicked’ Movie This Way Comes to Theaters in December 2021

is defy­ing grav­i­ty — and years of false starts — with an offi­cial release date. Uni­ver­sal has set the Wicked release date for Decem­ber 2021, final­ly bring­ing the hit musi­cal to the big screen. The fea­ture adap­ta­tion of Win­nie Holz­man and Stephen Schwartz’s Tony Award-win­ning musi­cal was orig­i­nal­ly set to fly into the­aters in 2019, but its release date was tak­en over by Tom Hooper’s Cats.
