A wide-screen shot of each character, rendered as tiny figures in the center of the frame, shows off the movie's expansive sets. This is the first time their official costumes have been revealed, so it would be nice to get a detailed look at these iconic characters.

An Explanation Of Elphaba's And Glinda's Roles In Wicked

The most widely known of all the characters of Glinda and the Wicked Witch of the West was introduced to the world by the 1939 film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz. The Good Witch Glinda is helping Dorothy Gale return home to Kansas from the magical land of Oz, while the Wicked Witch is doing everything she can to steal the ruby slippers from her. 

Her motivation for becoming evil was never explored in the film or the original books. Wicked offers a more detailed look at how she gained her evil behavior. After becoming roommates at the magical boarding school Shiz, Glinda, and Elphaba become good friends in Wicked. 

A Wicked Film Breaks Up A Storyline

The iconic musical number "What Is This Feeling?" dramatizes how they butt heads when thrown together for the first time. However, they bond in the song "Popular" when Glinda helps Elphaba understand her social status. 

The original stage musical has both of those songs in Act One. It has yet to be announced where the Wicked films will break up the story, but the break between the two acts seems likely. They will become friends in the first film, so a lot of the film will focus on their relationship before things get more complicated.
