Praising the cast and crew, she said, “And with Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo, it’s like a dream. I walk onto set and hear angels sing.”
Mentioning Jon Chu, Yeoh admitted that waiting to select someone experienced like him was worth it. While Yeoh will portray the role of Madame Morrible, Grande will be seen as Glinda and Erivo as Elphaba. The musical fantasy movie also showcases Jonathan Bailey, Ethan Stater, Jeff Goldblum, etc. in the cast. While adaptations of the 1995 book Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West exist, this movie is set to be a world apart because of its grand production. Much of the movie’s production will take place outdoors in London, UK.
