Ariana Grande Marks Halfway Point of Filming 'Wicked' Movie Adaptation

Ariana Grande is celebrating being halfway through filming the upcoming much-anticipated, long-awaited Wicked movie adaptation!

The 29-year-old singer and actress will bring Glinda to the big screen in the two-parter, alongside Cynthia Erivo as Elphaba.

The cast and crew has been hard at work bringing the Broadway musical to the big screen.

On Monday (April 3), Ariana took to Instagram to share a new behind-the-scenes photo, though quite blurry, of her and her dog Toulouse on set, along with a lengthy caption, sharing how she’s feeling at the midway point.

Keep reading to see what Ariana wrote…

“halfway. savoring every millisecond left with my Galinda (although she’ll be with me irrevocably, forever). she shows me so many new things every day,” Ariana shared. “i am so grateful, i don’t know what to do or say… to be here in Oz where everyday is a life changing one… to be feeling, learning and growing so much at such a disarming speed… to feel so much love around me, to begin each day before the sun is up and to end after it sets… to hold my brilliant twin flame / sister Cynthia’s beautiful, green hands every day… to work in the safest, most beautiful and loving, biggest-yet-most-intimate/tiny-feeling spaces… to be lead by thee most thoughtful, brilliant, compassionate and warmest possible director on this planet, my other Ozian best friend ever Jon…”

“to be transforming and healing parts of me that i never knew needed it. or maybe did. forgive me for this most cancerian, rambly post. words don’t suffice but i suppose i just wanted to (attempt to) share a little. i don’t want it to end. so while i am still here, present, now, i just wanted to….exclaim my tremendous gratitution ! and allow my heart to overflow. i hope this isn’t all a dream because as present as i am attempting to be, it sure does feel like one.”

“happy halfway to this most beautiful crew. my fellow Ozians. my heart will be stuck here forever,” Ariana concluded.

Cynthia commented on her post, writing, “My sweet sweet sister. I love you so so much, this time has been so transformative, I can not imagine my life without you in it!! More beautiful days in Oz ahead, and more in our lives !!! Stuck with me!! 💚💚💚”

Since the movie adaptation is being split into two movies, the halfway mark could mean that they’ve gotten through filming on the first half, which is set to hit theaters in November 2024, if they are going in order.
