Hey everybody! I have great news for my fellow Broadway fans (though they’d have to be living under a rock not to have heard this) – two musicals are being made into movies! Sadly, they are not “Hamilton” and “Dear Evan Hansen”, but we are getting “Wicked” and “In the Heights”, two of my personal favorites, at some point in the future!

The “Wicked” movie release date is set for 2019. Currently we don’t know when we’ll get “In the Heights”, but we can hope it will be around the same time so we can get hyped for both at the same time.

On second thought, maybe it would be better if they came at different points.

But just because we won’t get the movies for a while doesn’t mean we can’t already be excited for them – and so I am here to share my dream cast lists for both of these movies. I know there are still rumors that Nicole Scherzinger will play Elphaba, but as those aren’t confirmed, (and she’s pretty much said no), I can give my list without fear of being called an ignorant! Yay fandoms!

Without further ado, here are my dream cast lists for “Wicked” and “In the Heights”.
