First, My personal view is just that my Personal View....You do not have to agree with it, but I have my right to put it out there...I am a lover of musicals, stage and film and I can put I like.... We can debate on the show or shows but no one view is the only view on this forum.
I think Universal will be the one who decides if the musical will be made in 2021...They own major shares on the show...they own the rights..Do I think it will be 2021....not a chance! Something will ha
Just heard a interview with Stephen Schwartz who said the movie is coming but not sure when. I know Universal has posted it will be December 2021, and they own the rights to the property. With Cats being a complete failure, I don't think it will happen in 2021. Every interview Schwartz keeps say they are working on the script, they are working on the script.....
Just want to know thoughts on this. I would add if they are serious about 2021 they would announce casting this summer or
Anyone know when the soundtrack for the new Lion King is coming out??? I looked online and it says the digital release was supposed to be today 07/11.... Has it been moved??/

I agree with your message 100% ... I only worry bc if you look at Beauty and the Beast they didn’t change it same with Jasmine from Aladdin... I don’t want this to back fire on Disney
Look at MJ in Spider-Man originally she is with red hair and when Zendaya got the role it changed and some liked the change the other didn’t

This was reported this past week: Says Schwartz, “I will tell you 100 percent there will be a movie of Wicked and it won't be that far away but it won't be next year because we're still writing. Pre-production hasn't even begun but that could start in the not-too-distant future."
Stephen Schwartz was interviewed this past week

Just because it’s been delayed does not mean it will be years off. Cats will take 2019... I see a 2020 or even a 2021 release. Movies doesn’t take they long to make. I can see them making it next spring and taking a year to add all the special effects... I have a hunch when they do announce the cast it will come out fast... stop jumping to conclusions... it’s not dead... Universal is very good of making the movies they announce
I just think its going to be very interesting to see Wicked go against Star Wars... It gives people the chance to see a double feature that day. I need to see who's in the cast first. Look at Greatest Showman, many critics put this movie down, however it did better then they thought. So I think Movie Musicals can hold their ground against big movies either being Star Wars or any other type.
Variety reported that Disney had already been looking to push production from February to June and that the release date would likely move even after how quickly the studio found a replacement director.
Not because JJ Abram , well not only They had already looked to move it
Wicked OFFICIALLY coming to theaters Jan 1

Not true ... Star war was moved way before they switched a director and unless universal has something to replace it with they won’t move it from that year... Stephen Daugtry the director has reported he set aside this year for the movie and Disney wants him for the obi wan movie next year... I have no doubt there a possibility for it to move to 2020 but not 100% sure Wicked is a major property for Universal they want something major for Christmas 2019.. just like Disney does.
