Cynthia Erivo Reveals 'Wicked' Part Two's Title While Making Rare Comments About the Movie

Cynthia Erivo has made rare comments about the Wicked movies on social media and she even revealed the full title of the second film!

The Tony-winning actress will be playing the role of Elphaba, the green witch, in the upcoming film adaptation of the beloved Broadway musical.

Wicked will be split into two parts, with part one being released in November 2024 and the second film following in 2025.

In a new post on Instagram, Cynthia wrote an emotional note about the filming process and shared a photo of the script, which had the title card.

The script has the title, Wicked Part Two: For Good.


UPDATE: Director Jon M. Chu says this title is just a “code name for now.”


“THIS IS A LONG ONE SO STICK WITH ME 💚 I realize I’ve said very little about my experience on Wicked and that’s mainly because I’ve been keeping my head down and mining this beautifully complex being that is Elphaba, and it’s really hard to put into words,” Cynthia wrote on Instagram.

She continued, “It is day 111 and yesterday we finished filming ‘I’m Not That Girl’ when we had come to the end of that moment, my heart broke open and tears fell. (Please know this happens OFTEN) I thought of us, the ones who often feel like they’re on the outside. The ones who don’t know that their differences, oddities, quirks are what make them beautiful and special. The ones who, for some reason, believe they can’t be loved and I felt proud to sing a song that might speak to those feelings.”

“I am endlessly grateful to play a role that turns the notion of what beauty is on its head, I am endlessly grateful to be working with some of the most beautiful souls on the planet and I’m already grieving for the day our little bubble must come to an end. I desperately hope that when you finally see this film, you’ll see you, you’ll see me, you’ll see Jon and Ari and our hearts laid bare, you’ll see pain and joy and maybe just maybe you’ll see a little spark of light that says, you are who you are for a reason and you are deserving of happiness and even though sometimes it might be hard to find, it is there for the taking,” Cynthia said. “I hope all the bumps and scrapes and scars that you’ve picked up along the way, get a little healing when you finally relax in a theater with a snack a drink and hopefully, friends you bring or friends you find when you’re there.”

It’s interesting that Cynthia chose to share a photo of Part Two’s script to talk about filming “I’m Not That Girl” as that song should be in Part One!
