We've got some wicked good news for you!

It's been over a year since we last heard about the movie adaptation of Wicked, but we're happy to report we just got our first official news about the film on Thursday.

Universal Pictures decided to surprise fans out of the blue with an announcement on Twitter this morning, revealing that Wicked: The Movie will be flying into theaters in time for… Christmas 2019!!!

WE HAVE TO WAIT 3.5 YEARS?!?!

While we now have a date to look forward to, there's still no word on who will be taking over Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth's iconic roles.

Although, we think it's pretty obvious Lea Michele and Kristen Bell were made to play Elphaba and Glinda, respectively!

Lea has more than proven her musical capabilities on years of Glee, and K-Bell has done the same in Disney's Frozen AND in live action in Reefer Madness: The Musical.

This could very well be the most anticipated movie musical of all time… so Universal better get started if they wanna be done by December 20, 2019!

Who do U want to see travel to the land of Oz??

Kristen Bell, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sarah Jessica Parker, & Many MORE Show Support With Their Singing Voices In 'Broadway For Orlando'!

no title

This is the best news to come out after the Orlando shooting so far!

The LGBT community was rocked to its core early Sunday morning when 49 of our brothers and sisters were senselessly murdered while partying at Pulse Nightclub.

Authorities and politicians are currently fighting amongst themselves whether to call this a foreign or domestic terrorist attack, or whether to blame the deaths on gun control… but we know this was first and foremost a hate crime.

That's why it's more important than ever for everyone who identifies as queer — as well as our allies — to support one another in our time of need.

Luckily, the Broadway community could not be tighter with us gays, which is why we're happy to report that Broadway For Orlando is here to help!

Celebs like Kristen Bell, Sara Bareilles, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Idina Menzel, and sooooo many more will be raising money for the LGBT Center of Central Florida with a musical theater cover of Burt Bacharach's What the World Needs Now Is Love!

The 35-year-old wrote that she doesn't understand why characteristically female traits are perceived as weaknesses, saying:

"For the majority of the human timeline, these differences were openly viewed as female weaknesses; creating a chasm between men and women. And though that view has been quieted, it has not disappeared. There are echoes of it everywhere you look. My question is who decided these differences were weak?"

The momma-of-two encouraged lovely ladies everywhere to embrace these things, adding:
