The trailer opens with Ariana’s voice asking, “Are people born wicked? Or do they have wickedness thrust upon them?” Grande, clad in several pink costumes, is seen meeting Erivo’s Elphaba and swinging from a chandelier in a shared dormitory at Shiz University.

The two then travel to the Emerald City to meet Jeff Goldblum‘s Wizard of Oz. Grande is heard singing “Popular,” and then sings a few lines from “Defying Gravity.”

The visual features flying monkeys, yellow bricks, silver slippers and plenty of pink and green.

The first Wicked film is set to premiere on Thanksgiving Day. The story, co-written by Winnie Holzman, is based on Gregory Maguire‘s 1955 novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.” Stephen Schwarts wrote the show’s music and lyrics.
