Synopsis

The global bestseller that inspired the hit musical phenomenon

Major, much-anticipated movie starring Cynthia Erivo and Ariana Grande coming to the big screen this November

What if we weren't told the whole story?

Years before Dorothy followed the Yellow Brick Road, another little girl makes her presence known in Oz.

Elphaba is born with green skin, a brilliant mind and an extraordinary talent for magic. She grows up lonely and different - but, arriving at university, Elphie dares to believe she might finally fit in.

But Oz isn't the haven she'd dreamed of. Some of its citizens are in grave danger, and Elphaba is determined to protect them from the Wizard's power.

And when the world declares her a witch, Elphaba takes matters into her own hands...
