The teaser trailer for the Wicked film was released during Super Bowl LVIII back in February.

The film explores the characters from the beloved Wizard of Oz.

During the CinemaCon last month, attendees saw extensive footage from the upcoming film. “We dreamed very, very, very big for Wicked. A magical land of sights and sounds that will astonish, and performances that will lift your spirits and occasionally break your heart,” Chu said at the event, per Hollywood Reporter.
