Disney fans were given a look inside the world of A Wrinkle in Time, Disney’s new epic adventure based on the beloved novel by Madeleine L’Engle, in a new trailer that debuted during ABC’s live broadcast of the 2017 American Music Awards.
Visionary director Ava DuVernay is at the helm for upcoming film, in which young Meg Murry (newcomer Storm Reid) embarks upon a transformative journey under the guidance of three remarkable celestial beings: Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling). The three “Mrs. Ws” have journeyed to earth to help Meg search for her father (Chris Pine) and embrace the “warrior” that lies within her. The film also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peňa, and Zach Galifianakis.
Oscar® winner Jennifer Lee (Frozen) wrote the screenplay based on L’Engle’s classic novel. Jim Whitaker and Catherine Hand produce, with Doug Merrifield serving as executive producer. To take audiences across dimensions of time and space, the filmmakers have assembled an impressive creative team comprised of some of the most talented artisans working today, including: Tobias Schliessler, ASC as director of photography, Naomi Shohan as production designer, Oscar nominee Spencer Averick as film editor, two-time Academy Award® nominee Paco Delgado as costume designer and four time Emmy® nominee Ramin Djawadi as composer.
Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time opens in U.S. theaters on March 9, 2018.
