Defying Gravity

‘Wicked’ teaser trailer sends gays into a spiral

“Hey babe, new Wicked trailer just dropped.”

Sure, the Kansas City Chiefs triumphed over the San Francisco 49ers last night, but plenty of important things happened too. Usher nostalgia made every millennial fall in love, Beyoncé dropped two country tracks, and the Wicked: Part One teaser trailer dropped. Football aside, there were plenty of things for the gays to be happy about and hearing the iconic “Defying Gravity” riff is one of them.

With this new teaser trailer, expect for the gays go green and pink in 2024. Wicked fans finally got to see Cynthia Erivo and Ariana Grande as Elphaba and Glinda respectively in all of their glory, bringing the film adaptation of the popular Broadway musical one step closer to the silver screen. The musical that the film is adapted from is based on the 1995 novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West and serves as an origin story to The Wizard of Oz‘s Wicked Witch of the West aka Elphaba.

Along for the John M. Chu-directed ride to Oz are Jonathan Bailey as Fiyero, Bowen Yang as Pfannee, Michelle Yeoh as Madame Morrible, Marissa Bode as Nessarose, Keala Settle as Miss Coddle, Grande’s new boo Ethan Slater as Boq, and Jeff Goldblum as the Wizard. Wicked will be split into two parts, and assumedly, they’ll all be present when part two comes out next year on November 26, 2025. Until then, we have Wicked: Part One to look forward and after the release of the Wicked: Part One teaser trailer, it’s safe to say that the gays are not well.

Wicked: Part One premieres on November 27. Check out the trailer below.
