Ariana ‘Glinda’ Grande: Meet the new good witch
Ariana Grande announced she will be portraying the pink and lovable witch, Glinda, on the big screen in the “Wicked” live action musical through an Instagram post on Nov. 4.
Grande shared photos on the social media app of her in her home on a Zoom call with director Jon M. Chu and Cynthia Ervio, the actress chosen to play Elphaba. The post shows a floral arrangement from Ervio, congratulating Grande.
The film’s director Chu, who directed the film “In the Heights,” released this summer, has been linked to the project since February, with casting rumors swirling around like the tornado that took Dorothy out of Kansas.
A release date has not yet been set for the film, but we will soon see Grande defying gravity, and the laws of decibels, with her whistle register on the big screen.
The MCU grows with Harry Styles addition
Jokes float around about how expansive the Marvel Cinematic Universe is, but fans were taken aback when they found out pop’s golden boy, Harry Styles, would be joining the franchise as Eros, the brother of Thanos.
Viewers who stayed for the post-credit scenes after “Eternals” (if you’re a true Marvel fan, you know never to leave when the end credits start rolling) recognized Styles appearing in a post-credit scene of an upcoming MCU movie.
In the scene, he visits the remaining Eternals, who are frantic to find their counterparts stuck on Earth. Eros is introduced by Oswalt, who names him as the Royal Prince of Titan, declaring Eros can help them find the rest of their team.
Rumors were circulating Styles would be in the MCU, but people denied them because of his touring schedule, album release, his lack of appearance on promotional materials, and the two other films he filmed earlier this year.
