Idina Menzel: I Would Die to Be in the 'Wicked' Movie!

Idina Menzel: I Would Die to Be in the 'Wicked' Movie!

Idina Menzel wears a white top and jacket while walking around town on Thursday (May 1) in New York City.

Later that night, the 42-year-old Frozen actress appeared on Watch What Happens Live and talked about the possibility of her being in a film adaptation of the musical Wicked.

After joking that she would have to play Elphaba’s mother at this point, Idina said “honestly, I would die to be in [it], except I’m afraid Kristin [Chenoweth] and I… they told us we’re a little over the age for that.”

Idina then suggested that they use CGI to make the film so that she could reprise her role as Elphaba!

They have to put Idina and Kristin into the movie they ARE Elphaba and Glinda!

The only way I’ll see it is if they are in it. I pray Idina’s wanna be Lea isn’t in it I couldn’t handle her annoying voice.

@Lena: They’ll have to change the storylines so that it caters to their ages though. A bunch of 40 year old women playing college students will look really dodgy to a non-Wicked audience.

She was walking to her If/Then show on Broadway, LOL (so later that night she was on stage, ha). Poor Idina getting paparazzied.

As for Wicked, animate it, they can play their parts even in another 10 years!!!
