Ariana Grande has teased her transformation into Glinder for a role in Wicked, the upcoming two-part musical adaptation of the popular stage show. In 2003, the theatrical musical “Wicked” based on Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of an Evil Western Witch” impressed the theater audience and critics. This story tells of an unlikely friendship between the opposing witches of Oz, Elphaba and Glinda, as circumstances force them to become mortal enemies, each of whom receives the title of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch, respectively. The musical Wicked received 6 Tony Awards out of 10 nominations and broke several production records, exceeding the total Broadway revenue of $ 1 billion. Inspired by his amazing success, they have been discussing a film adaptation for a long time.

After several obstacles and production delays, the film “Evil” finally began to develop in 2021, when John M. Chu took over as the new director instead of Stephen Daldry, and the creators of the musical Stephen Schwartz and Vinnie Holtzman wrote the script. Later that year, Wicked invited Grande and Cynthia Erivo to star as Glinda and Elphaba, respectively. The progress pleased many, and the excitement increased even more when Chu said that Grande’s audition in Wicked brought him to tears. Since then, fans have been looking forward to seeing Grande and Erivo’s characters in the film, and it looks like their wishes will come true soon.

Recently, Grande posted a story on Instagram in which she showed her new hairstyle for the role of Glinda in Wicked. As you can see from the picture, Grande dyed her waist-length hair platinum blonde for this role, presumably when she began preparing for the filming of the film. In the picture, Grande’s hair was gathered into her characteristic high pony, although in the film she is likely to tire her out. Take a look at the photo with the new hairstyle of the pop star below.

It seems Grande has already arrived in the UK to start rehearsals for Wicked. She hints at the beginning of production — a few days ago she posted an image of the scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz in stories. It was previously announced that the filming of the movie “Evil” will begin this summer, and since Grande is enthusiastically teasing her with the role of Glinda, it seems that production could really start very soon. Another interesting moment in the history of Grande was that in the photo she posed together with music producer/songwriter Ilya Salamanzade and Savan Kotechey. Salamanzade and Kotecha collaborated with Grande for her album Sweetener, and since the Wicked movie will include a new song, it’s possible that the trio may be working on a new track for the movie.

In general, the new image of Grande helps fans calm down while they wait for new news from Wicked. It’s nice to see that the singer-actress is completely devoted to her role in Wicked, and she is ready to go to great lengths to perfectly embody Glinda. As Grande shows off her new hairstyle, fans should keep an eye out for similar updates from Erivo, as well as a potential look at Glinda’s layered ice-blue ball gown. Given that the film “Evil” will not be released until Christmas 2024, it may take a long time before viewers learn more about the film.
