    Who do you want to play the part? How about a Kat McPhee & Megan Hilty reunion for the parts of Glinda & Elphaba?!

    Kinda sad how small the pool of broadway level talent is that Hollywood uses for major musicals that turn into films. We have an incredible arsenal of trained broadway performers who can act on screen yet Hollywood continues to tap into the same handful of women. Kinda over it. We don’t need to see the same faces in all of media. We can always have new people take the lead. Has Danna Paola even been considered? But yea the obvious choice is idina she is elphaba at her core. This is basically the hardest role in the broadway canon and this role calls for mastery of the role and vocals. This movie casting is critical to the fandom and some basic ain’t gonna cut it

    Anna might be a good Nessa. I would be curious how she would do “all of my life I’ve depended on you how do you think that feels? All of my life I’ve depended on you and this hideous chair with wheels” because I always feel like in that part of the show that is the part where the actress playing Nessa has a chance to get any and all pent up anger out. I mean look at from Nessa’s point of view your sister who has helped you all your life left you and now you’re an unelected governor and the person you have helping you doesn’t want to be there. Now for Elphaba I would choose an unknown actress who can carry the songs because that’s what Elphaba is an unknown in the play. People don’t really know her or who she is. People only know her as the wicked witch of the west. The only people who know her for more than that are Glinda, Nessa and Fiyero. So why not give an unknown actress a chance?

    Kristin sadly looks too old for the part but Idina is still perfect to play Elphaba

    Either lea or anna for elphaba but dove cameron should stay out of this she isnt a tv actress she is more of a musical theatre actess so she wouldnt be a good pick

    After seeing Aladdin, I’d personally love to see Naomi Scott take on the part of Elphaba. When she sang “Speechless”, I couldn’t help but picture how awesome that voice would sound singing “No Good Deed”.

    I'll get crucified for saying this, but I don't want Lea Michele to play Elphaba.
    My top three choices for the role of Elphaba are Anneliese van der Pol, Samantha Barks, and Vanessa Hudgens.

      I cant stand it when movie actors get cast in musical movies it really makes me angry
      I know i seem biased but literally nobody should be elphaba other than idina menzel, the queen herself. :)

    Anna's voice has too much softness even tho it's great. I would love to see Lea Michele as elphaba because in Glee she sang the songs of wicked so well and she looks like Idina. Fans know that Idina played her mother in the show so that would be great. Also I don't know why Nicole Scherzinger is in the thumbnail, cause I think she is also considered too old.

    lea michele
    1. she looks like elphaba
    2. ppl say her voice isn’t mature enough for this... i think her voice is perfect. the confidence in her voice gives just the perfect touch for me. i love the type of voice she has it’s so smooth.
    3. she’s lea michele like come on

    i do think idina menzel is AWESOME and she’s the best but if they’re not casting her then it should be lea michele. ❤️

    There are SO many talented ladies in Broadway that would be AMAZING in this movie! They need to stop ruining all my fave musicals with Ann Kendrick. Her voice is fine I guess, but there are waaaay better candidates!

    You can’t cast anyone that hasn’t played those parts. Sorry. Rachel Tucker should be Elphaba and Annaleigh Ashford as Glinda. Aaron Tveitz as Fiyero.
