Ariana Grande in Wicked? The "34+35" singer is switching positions and gearing up to star in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical.
Grande is certainly piling on resumé accomplishments; not only has she just released one of the best perfumes for women (we're biased over here) and joined The Voice as its newest host, but now she'll be tackling the role of Glinda.
"Thank goodness," she wrote in an Instagram caption alongside photos on Zoom with director Jon M Chu (In the Heights and Crazy Rich Asians) and Cynthia Erivo, who will be starring as Elphaba. Erivo even sent Grande a congratulatory bouquet with a sweet note about landing the role.
"I look forward to sharing this musical journey with you," it stated.
We cannot wait to see what this pair has in store for us!

'Wicked' movie release date
Although it's a bit too soon to expect a release date, fans can keep up with the film's latest developments on its new Instagram channel (@wickedmovie (opens in new tab)). Allegedly, production will begin in the UK in summer 2022. We're anxious to see behind-the-scenes sneak peeks.
Ariana Grande singing 'Wicked'
In 2018, Grande—a Broadway alumna who starred in 13— performed "The Wizard and I" for A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 years on Broadway, so she is certainly no stranger to the musical. Have a look at what we can expect below!
Until the Wicked release, catch up with the songs from the Broadway smash hit and the bestselling series from Gregory MacGuire.
