And we thought Hermione would be her most magical role!
Emma as the strong and well-read Belle?? What perfect casting!
All we have to say is Idina Menzel had BETTER be involved in this.
She IS the original Elphaba!!
With rumors swirling about the fate of the Wicked movie, it's only logical that people would hope (demand) that Idina is involved somehow and it looks like she's down for the idea too!
"If I could be a part of it in some way that would be great. I already feel like I received, and continue to receive, the gifts from Wicked and how it affects audiences."
Let it be known, that if Idina isn't involved in this movie then that would be a BIG fail for Universal!
