Does anyone else think an animated adaptation of Wicked would be incredible?
>>
>>67945896
An animated adaptation of the original novel would be unacceptable in Burgerland, and probably badly received in Yuropooria.
>>
>>67946018

Not OP, but what is so bad about the original novel?
>>
I'd of course want it to be based off the musical. Not the novel. If we want kids (and me) to like this shit, thered need to be more singing and less witch sex
>>
>>67946035
A lot more adult and depressing. What made the musical so great was that it was a lighthearted story about two teenage girls and had a Frozen-style insta-win musical score.
>>
>>67945896
Is wicked a spinoff of the Wizard of Oz?
>>
>>67946035
Novel is pretty political and sexy.

I'm assuming op is asking about an adaptation of the musical, which would be fantastic so long as they get Chenoweth and Menzel.

It's the story told from the witche's perspective (first act is her backstory, and second is the events of The Wizard of Oz).
I guess you could call it a fanfiction, but instead of sucking, its actually really good.
>>
>>67946157
She still looks like an old hag, right? Not the cutsy shit in OP? That was the best part about her.
Oh, and does she die in it?
>>
>>67946157
>but instead of sucking, its actually really good

What the novel? Shit, I guess everybody has their own opinion.
>>
>>67946119
I think they should use different voice actors for the first half. I took it as there being a significant time gap between Act 1 and Act 2.
It would sort of be a shame though because then Menzel wouldn't get to sing the two best songs in the musical (The Wizard and I, and Defying Gravity)
>>
>>67946185
It follows her from her infancy through the entirety of her life. She's not too much of a qt though, she's repeatedly described of having an extremely sharp appearance.

And yes, she dies.

I'd read it, anon, there's some intriguing political shit and a surprising amount of sex, overall good stuff.
>>
>>67946208
The wickedly talented Adele Dazeem can voice women of multiple ages. Her voice is multipurpose like that.
>>
>>67946185
It's a play so there wasnt any point to make her ugly since the audience cant see her face close up. Should a movie be made, I'll be mad if she doesnt have a hooked nose and a big chin.
>>
>>67946119
I would also settle for Ana Gasteyer. Saw her as Elphaba on Broadway and she killed it.

>surprising amount of sex
Hmm... No thank you.
I thought it was a play, why say read?
Plus, I'm fine enough with the way it ended in the original.
>>
>>67946187
I was referring to the musical (which is pretty much universally loved). I havent read the book so i have no opinion on it.
>>
>>67946299
The play was based off a book
>>
>>67946299
Broadway show adapted from novel, although the two are vastly different.

As previously stated, novel follows Elphaba from birth to death, has political intrigue, sex, drama, and a baby. There's also sequels although I haven't read them.

Wicked the musical follows Elphaba really from academy on and is more light-hearted with happy endings, but a touch of the political intrigue and racism from the books. In both Elphaba's actually kind of a good way with debatable methods.
>>
>>67945896
no it would be bad
>>
I'm trying to remember, but in the play I think the Wicked Witch had more to do with the Oz cast too.

Like she created the Cowardly Lion or at least gave him the ability to talk?
The Tin Man was a Munchkin who fell in love with her paraplegic sister.
The Straw Man was her lover, Fiyero, whom she turned to straw when the Wizards goons were about to beat him to death.

But I don't think any of that happened in the book, or at least Wicked and Oz characters weren't connected in that way?
>>
OP doesn't seem to be doing it so I'll dump the rest of Minkyuu Lee's tumblr postings.
>>
>>67946475
I feel like explaining dorothy's companions added a lot of confusion. Like, so the tinman just never mentioned the fact that he personally knew both the witches, and was made of tin because of them. And he also met the cowardly lion.
And i can get behind Fiyero not saying anything about being Elphaba's boyfriend, but then why does she set him on fire?

It's called fanart.

Stop calling it a play. It's a musical.

I dont like these designs for Glinda. It just doesnt capture her personality the way it should.
Also she should be more petite and her hair should be in ringlets.
>>
>>67945896
There's something about the songs that just makes me start imagining animated sequence when I listen.
The musical just feels made to be a Disney movie.
>>
>>
>>67946745
>Christoff and Hans had a gaybaby
>>
>>
>>67946789
Hey look! It's that one guy from the Lion King!
>>
>>
>>67946745
Isn't he supposed to be black, or is that just in the books?
>>
>>67946752
I cant tell you how thoroughly ive choreographed every song to fit in a movie.
I would also love to see how they could pay homage to theater. Like how in birdman, everything was made to look like a single take, in order to capture the fluidity of stage plays.
>>
>>
>>67946788
Isnt the guy who voiced christoff already gay?
>>
Done.
>>
>>67946825
Tumblr only likes black guys as long as they're not love interests.

No, really, that's odd that she didn't make him so then.
>>
>>67947054
Or the artist drew it based off of the actor in the musical who is white
>>
I'd rather see an animated adaption of the later Baum novels really.
>>
>>67947076
1. He's been played by a black guy before.
2. Why not draw a version that is more faithful to the book if you're trying to make a new adaptation?
>>
>>67946569
Why does everyone on tumblr draw the same.

I'm getting real sick of all the pixar/disney style people everyone always does over and over and over.
>>
>>67947143
To be fair if it's a Disney adaptation it's kind of expected.
>>
>>67947126
Why does it even matter? Draw him white, draw him black, draw him asian, draw him whatever the hell you want.
>>
>>67947178
Oh, I agree, but at least he wouldn't be Kristoff 2.0.
>>
>>67947143
>>67946592

Minkyu Lee is a Disney concept artist you morons. Those Wicked visdev images were part of his portfolio which got him hired.
>>
>>67946682
do you want a fucking medal?

It has a lot of potential, but I feel like if they ever made one it would probably live action based on the play. I liked the book, but I think the sexuality and the political stuff would be toned down significantly to make it more "family friendly." Can't have those bisexuals and furries in a Christian animated movie.

Despite the tumblr nose, I think these designs are better. I picture Elphaba as tall and thin, with very pointed features and straight hair. Galinda is of course more petite and curvy, with blonde ringlets.

>>67946095
The musical sucked green dick, they removed all the themes and substantial content. 2nd-worst musical I've ever seen.
Would not watch it in a box, would not watch it in with a fox.
>>
>>67948549
Shut up, Sam
>>
>>67948549
What was the worst?
>>
>>67948923
Obviously Springtime for Hitler
>>
>>67946718
The first thing I thought of was the Matrix Revolutions
>>
>>67946095
I've only read the book and I liked it. But you make the musical sound like crap. Is there a plot to the musical?
>>
>>67945896
How did The Wizard become The Wizard in Wicked anyway? Why is he so loved?
>>
>>67950915
Oh the musical is fantastic! It focuses mostly on the relationship between Elphaba and Glinda. It has great music and great humor, and by the end youre really emotionally invested.
>>
>>67950974
It doesnt deal with his backstory. Save for some really vague, offhand backstory mentioned by him, you dont have any better an idea who he is.
>>
>>67946801
Simba?
