The cinematic 30-second spot for part 1 of the Wicked movie musical shows the film’s title being spelled out letter by letter, in between shots of the pop star’s Glinda floating in her magical pink bubble and Cynthia Erivo’s Elphaba putting on her iconic black witch’s hat and grabbing ahold of her broom. In addition to the Harriet star’s knockout “Defying Gravity” riff, listeners are also treated to new snippets of Grande’s vocals.

“Follow my lead,” she sings from “Popular” in the teaser. “La la, la la…”

Fans previously got to hear a taste of Grande singing the famous tune in the full-length Wicked trailer, which dropped last month. It followed a shorter trailer that aired for the first time during the 2024 Super Bowl.

The new teaser comes days after Grande spoke about the film in a Tonight Show interview with Jimmy Fallon, on which she also performed her latest Eternal Sunshine single “The Boy Is Mine.” “This is something Cynthia and I lived every single day,” she told the late-night host. “To share it with people and to feel the love that we’ve received has been really overwhelming. These were really practical sets that we were blessed to be apart of. What you’re seeing is where we got to be for two years.”

Watch the latest Wicked teaser featuring Grande’s vocals on “Popular” below, ahead of the film’s Nov. 27 release.
