I got 5 min into a Mama Mia movie like 10 years ago and couldn’t do it lol. And that Les Mis movie was just a nightmare I had, I’m sure of it.

Yeah I guess that would make sense. And her singing voice is pretty good as well.

I've only seen her sing in Les Mis and Mamma Mia and neither performance convinces me that she has the chops to sing Glinda. Glinda is a pretty difficult part and idk if a non-professional can really do her justice.

Mte. She has a sweet voice but that’s not enough for the role.

Yes Glinda is such a difficult role. She sings in a massive range and a bunch of different styles. I don't think Amanda could do a strong enough pop belt, nor do I think she could sing the more classical soprano sections. They should just cast an actress and dub the singing tbh.

Maybe blend her voice with a trained singer?

I think it’s distracting when they straight up dub an actress like rachel mcadams in Eurovision or Rebecca furgeson in the greatest showman

Samantha would be a great Elphaba but her or Anne meh, too much Les Mis reunion for me
