It’s here, it’s really here! At long last, the first teaser trailer for Ava DuVernay’s star-studded adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time was unveiled at Disney’s D23 expo today, and now it’s online for the rest of us to watch (again and again and again).
Oprah is in peak form as the mysterious Mrs. Which, and joining her is Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs Who, respectively. Storm Reid plays Meg Murray, who travels through time and space with her brother and friend, looking for her missing father (played by Chris Pine). All in all, this looks like the big, gorgeous and inspiring adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel we were all hoping for (even if the trailer does suffer from the “haunting version of a famous song” cliché - yes we hear you, “Sweet Dreams”).
The movie is due to hit theaters March 9, 2018, and based on this first glimpse that date can’t come quickly enough.
