Wicked Director John M. Chu Reveals The Surprising Way The Broadway Musical Will Be Adapted Into Film, And Wow

Wicked fans have been waiting for a feature film adaptation of the Tony-winning Broadway musical for a while now. The project has seen its fair share of starts and stops since the movie discussions began in 2003. Thankfully, there seems to be hope at the end of the yellow brick road, as production is finally ramping up under the direction of John M. Chu. Since the Crazy Rich Asians alum took the gig, he’s shared occasional updates about the progress that’s being made. Now, Chu has revealed a huge detail about how the play is being adapted, and wow.

The always delightful John M. Chu posted this most recent announcement to Twitter, in the form of a screenshot from his “OzPhone.” In it, the director confirmed that the adaptation will be split into two movies and not a single installment as many assumed. Chu also explained the decision to divide the story into two parts: 

Here’s what happened: as we prepared this production over the last year. It became increasingly clear that it would be impossible to wrestle the story of WICKED into a single film without doing some real damage to it. As we tried to cut songs or trim characters, those decisions began to feel like fatal compromises to the source material that has entertained us for so many years. So we decided to give ourselves a bigger canvas and make not just one WICKED movie but TWO!!!!! With more space, we can tell the story of WICKED as it was meant to be told while bringing even more depth and surprise to the journeys of these beloved characters.
