wicked 2 (2025)
According To Uswhispers Universal will release its feature take on the smash Broadway musical Wicked in two parts on December 25, 2024 and December 25, 2025. It’s a bold swing for a musical, which of late have been risky onscreen. However, this one is based on a legacy crowd-pleaser.
Most of the time, movies like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, which are based on books, are split into two parts. The plan fell apart when Lionsgate's third Divergent movie, Allegiant, bombed at the box office, making only $66 million in the U.S.
$179 million worldwide. The second half of that Shailene Woodley movie was never made because that movie fell apart. However, the third Divergent book by Veronica Roth was very divisive among fans.
Wicked is a Broadway musical that has made close to $3 billion and has been seen by more than 30 million people all over the world.
