With this dreamy trailer, viewers get to see one of the most anticipated musicals of the past few decades from a cinematic perspective for the first time. Naturally, the video also introduces some of the well-known music from the prequel. The first encounter between Glinda and Elphaba at school, which starts an odd and ultimately complex friendship that lasts for the rest of their lives, is depicted in the trailer. 

Erivo's Elphaba is reassured by Grande's Glinda, "Don't be afraid. With a steely voice, Erivo says, "I'm not afraid. It’s the Wizard who should be afraid of me.
