'Wicked' Movie Musical Postponed Again

Wicked, the upcoming movie musical based on the smash hit Broadway show, has been postponed again.

The movie was originally supposed to hit theaters on December 20, 2019, but the release date was delayed and the studio gave that slot to another movie musical, Cats. The studio then gave Wicked a new release date of December 22, 2021. However, Universal has once again pushed the movie musical back due to the shuffling on many release dates based on the global health crisis.

Now, Universal has chosen to put Sing 2 on December 22, 2021. Wicked does not have a new release date at this time.

The studio also announced that Minions: The Rise of Gru will now be released on July 2, 2021, The Wrap reports.

Idina Menzel, the original Elphaba on Broadway, recently weighed in on potential casting for the film!
