Rebecca Rubin Senior Film and Media Reporter Ozians are putting aside their panic for this one day, to celebrate! The cause for commotion?

Universal finally unveiled the first full-length trailer for its adaptation of the beloved Broadway musical. The dazzling, more than three-minute-long footage finally captures Ariana Grande‘s Glinda and Cynthia Erivo‘s Elphaba singing two of the show’s anthems, “Popular” and “Defying Gravity.” A prequel to “The Wizard of Oz,” “Wicked” recounts the events that happened before Dorothy followed that iconic yellow brick road and Elphaba, ostracized for her green skin, became the Wicked Witch of the West.

It tells the story of the unlikely friendship (turned rivalry) of Elphaba and Glinda, who first met as classmates at Shiz University, and asks a central question: “Are people born wicked, or do they have wickedness thrust upon them?” In the glittering trailer, Elphaba meets her (blonde!) roommate Glinda and gets gifted her signature black witch hat.

Later, as Elphaba comes into her powers, she travels with Glinda to the Emerald City and comes face-to-face with the Wizard (played by Jeff Goldblum).
