Yes yes we know it's bloody ages away, but can't we all hold hands and dance and belt out a loud af version of 'Defying Gravity' to celebrate? We'll be doing green facepaint by the canteen and Barry from IT's even got a false nose on.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, some of the people behind the original theatre production are set to be part of the film adaptation -  including producer Marc Platt, writer Winnie Holzman, and composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz. Cool or what? 

As of yet, though, most of the casting decisions have been kept under wraps - with Lea Michele and Sara Bareilles names being whispered around the rumour mill but nothing officially confirmed.
