It's very weird to follow up that number with say, "Thank Goodness" and continue the story without there being an intermission (as movies used to sometimes have). Then again, the South Park movie was able to go on after "La Resistance." I like that they're taking this risk with WICKED though. Let them really flesh out Act 1. However, I prefer Act 1 to Act 2 and a fleshed out Act 1 movie may be enough for audiences. They might not go to Act 2 BECAUSE they liked Act 1. I absolutely loved Season 1 of Stranger Things but I've never gotten around to watching the other seasons. I was full.
