The film adaptation of the hit musical Bad it drove Broadway pundits crazy. The work, created in 2003, has fallen in love with millions of people since its premiere, becoming a benchmark in the world of entertainment.

Inspired by characters from Oz, the play tells the true story of Elphaba, the wicked witch of the west, before Dorothy arrives in the wizarding world. Also of Glinda, the good witch, and the friendship that united them during the university years.

Thus, the story tells how Elphaba becomes the villain of Oz. A story that fans and followers of Harry Potter will love. And it is that, as in the books of JK Rowling, we go to magic classes.

Now, finally, we’ve seen the first images of Ariana Grande as Glinda: The Good Witch of Oz. A role for which the singer has been preparing practically all her life. And it is that Ariana Grande has been a big fan of the musical since its release.

In fact, the singer herself covered with Mika in 2012 one of the best-known songs from the work: Popular. The curious? A decade later, Ariana would sing it for the film version. And it is that it is his character, that of Glinda, who sings it to Elphaba, played by Cynthia Erivo. Come on, Ariana Grande has come full circle.

Ariana Grande: Wicked is a dream

Now, for the first time, we’ve seen Ariana Grande portrayed as Glinda. And it’s a real pass! The American actress donned the characteristic pink dress of the Good Witch.

In addition, on social networks, a small cut of the shooting has gone viral. We see Ariana singing part of a song. With a beautiful soprano voice, the singer shows once again that she has one of the best voices of the moment.

Ariana Grande has melted into her character of Glinda for the past few months. The actress has been involved in the project for over a year. Between filming, dance lessons and rehearsals, Ariana has been living in London for almost a year. The 29-year-old crippled her schedule to fully immerse herself in Oz.

So, in her role as Glinda, it’s her, that the only songs we’ve heard Ariana sing in recent months have to do with Oz. At the end of 2022, Ari returns to social networks to interpret Somewhere over the rainbow, the classic in which Judy Garland starred The Wizard of Oz from 1939.

But the thing did not stop there. Ariana changed her Instagram bio to: “currently somewhere over the rainbow”. A declaration of intentions.

In addition, a few weeks ago production reached the equator. Ariana shared a beautiful text where she explained how special this experience is for her: “It’s being a dream. Savoring every millisecond I have left with my Galinda (even if she will be with me irrevocably, forever ), she teaches me so many new things every day. I’m so grateful, I don’t know what to do or say…to be here in Oz where every day is life changing.”

A brotherly relationship with co-star: Cynthia Erivo

This shoot is also very special because of the beautiful friendship he developed with the Wicked co-star: Cynthia Erivo. The actress plays Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and got along wonderfully with Ari.

In fact, they call each other “sisters”. That’s what the actress wrote in a message: “My sweet sister. I love you so much, this time has been so transformative, I can’t imagine my life without you! More beautiful days in Oz to come , and more in our lives! Stay with me.

Without a doubt, the world of Oz has changed Ariana Grande. The good side of this project? Which will come with a brutal soundtrack performed by her.
