Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo cast in Wicked movie and no one can handle it

The Wicked movie is about to have an absolutely magical cast as music legend Ariana Grande and acting royalty Cynthia Erivo have been cast in the lead roles.

Ariana will be taking on the role of Glinda, while Cynthia is playing Elphaba, with the pair announcing the exciting news on Instagram – and did someone make this match in heaven?!

The Thank U, Next singer, 28, shared a photo of herself in disbelief with her hands over her face, and a photo of a gorgeous bouquet of flowers sent to her by Cynthia, with a message reading: ‘The part was made for you.’

She went on to share a string of snaps of herself and Cynthia, 34, freaking out together over video call and it’s just the cutest.

Cynthia shared a similar string of photos, including a leafy bouquet from Ari, with a card that reads: ‘Honored doesn’t even begin to cover it. Can’t wait to hug you.’

We can’t handle this partnership!

Wicked does not yet have a release date.
