    Nostalgic for ‘The Bridgertons’ and fans of Ariana Grande in equal parts, this combo is for you: Jonathan Bailey to join the main cast of ‘Wicked’the prequel to ‘The Wizard of Oz’ in which Ariana Grande also participates.

    It has been the director Jon M. Chu who has announced it, through his Twitter profile: “He is perfect, they are perfect. They would be perfect together. I am too excited to pretend that this has not happened. We have Fiyero! # JonathanBailey #Wicked,” he posted (quoting Fiyero’s song ‘Dancing through life’).

    And so, one of the most anticipated movies in the Oz universe is coming.

    And yes, the best thing is that the actor joins Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo to star in it, and both have already spoken about the news. Ariana published a ‘story’ in which she wrote: “What a party we will have today!!!”, (coinciding with the lyrics of one of her songs in the tape ‘Thank Goodness’), “we are very excited that you join us here in Oz, Jonathan,” he added along with several bubble emojis. And Cynthia also welcomed him in her ‘stories’.

    Ariana Grande will play Gilda and Cynthia Erivo, Elphaba, and the story will be divided into two parts. But hey, past the ‘hype’, here we land in reality, we’re sorry: there’s still a lot left for its premiere, so we have to wait.

    The first will be released on December 25, 2024, and the second will be released on Christmas Day 2025. Wow, how will we be then?

    Have we already devoured the third season of ‘The Bridgertons’? Sure!
