Musical theatre fans everywhere and waiting with bated breath for the release of the Wicked movies but we know that we won’t be getting the first one until November 2024. So, for now, we are waiting for any snippet of information we can get from the cast or crew about the movie, and Ariana Grande may have just provided that.

The singer, who will play Galinda/Glinda in the film has been very careful not to reveal her hair and makeup, often wearing something on her head if she is posting a video or picture. And this time was no different. The star posted a very blurry image of herself ‘under the rainbow’ to Instagram yesterday. You can’t see her face, hair or makeup but you can see a rainbow and that’s enough for us right now.

It wasn’t the picture that fans were excited about, it was the caption. Ariana shared a heart-warming piece about just how much this movie means to her as well as a nod to her co-star Cynthia Erivo, who will play Elphaba and the director of the film Jon M. Chu.

She wrote, “Halfway. Savouring every millisecond left with my Galinda (although she’ll be with me irrevocably, forever). She shows me so many new things every day. I am so grateful, I don’t know what to do or say… To be here in Oz where everyday is a life changing one… To be feeling, learning and growing so much at such a disarming speed… To feel so much love around me, to begin each day before the sun is up and to end after it sets… to hold my brilliant twin flame / sister Cynthia’s beautiful, green hands everyday…

“To work in the safest, most beautiful and loving, biggest-yet-most-intimate/tiny-feeling spaces… To be lead by thee most thoughtful, brilliant, compassionate and warmest possible director on this planet, my other Ozian best friend ever Jon…
To be transforming and healing parts of me that I never knew needed it. Or maybe did.

“Forgive me for this most cancerian, rambly post. Words don’t suffice but I suppose I just wanted to (attempt to) share a little.
I don’t want it to end. So while i am still here, present, now, I just wanted to….exclaim my tremendous gratitution! And allow my heart to overflow. I hope this isn’t all a dream because as present as I am attempting to be, it sure does feel like one.

“Happy halfway to this most beautiful crew. My fellow Ozians. My heart will be stuck here forever.”
