Ariana Grande Predicted Dream Role In Wicked 10 Years Ago

We all know Ariana Grande was born to do Broadway... but fans suspect she actually predicted it herself, 10 years ago!

The Sweetener songstress will be starring alongside Pinocchio actress Cynthia Erivo in a Universal-produced film adaptation of Wicked.

Ariana is tipped to play Glinda The Good Witch, but eagle-eyed Arianators spotted the singer making her feelings clear in a 2011 Tweet.

Wicked premiered on Broadway in 2003, and has taken the world by storm ever since. The story is based on the original Wizard Of Oz novel. It unravels the complicated relationship between Elphaba, The Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda The Good Witch.

The original Broadway run saw Frozen's Idina Menzel in the role of Elphaba, and stage sensation Kristen Chenoweth as Glinda.

A film version has been in the pipeline since 2004 - but production isn't set to begin until Summer 2022. This isn't the first time Wicked has taken to the small screen, though! The songs have been covered on Glee, as well as the 2018 anniversary tribute special, which featured Ari herself.

Posting to Instagram, both Ariana and Cynthia showed their elation at receiving the roles. "Pink goes good with green", the Harriet actress revealed. Her post included a photo of a pink-and-green bouquet sent to her by the singer.

Ari's caption simply said, "thank goodness". Her bunch of flowers contained a sweet message by Cynthia herself, which reads "Congratulations Miss A, The Part Was Made For You [sic]".

The post showed the two actresses on Facetime together, looking delighted.

It's the role Ariana was born to play - but she predicted it over 10 years ago!

Fan-owned Twitter account Ariana World HQ spotted the Tweet from way back in 2011. "Loved seeing Wicked again... amazing production! Made me realize again how badly I want 2 play Glinda at some point in my life! #DreamRole," she said.

Arianators were mindblown by the revelation. One user said, "she manifested her whole life omg [sic]". Another solely said, "I'm in tears".
