We knew that when Disney announced it was turning the classic novel A Wrinkle In Time into a feature film that it was going to be amazing. We knew that when Ava DuVernay signed on to direct the film’s leads, including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling that it was going to be huge. But we still weren’t prepared for how amazing the film looks.
Just dropped this weekend, Disney has now released the first full length trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time. In the new trailer, the story of the film comes to life, with Gugu Mbatha-Raw appearing as Kate, lead character Meg’s (Storm Reid) mother. Together, the two explain the theory of their missing husband and father (Chris Pine) to Reid’s friend Calvin, played by Levi Miller. The kids are then transported to the alternate time dimension, where they meet Winfrey, Witherspoon and Kaling’s characters, along with the Happy Medium, who is played by Zach Galifinakis.
Meg is tasked with becoming a warrior and the ultimate source of light in order to defeat the darkness and save her father from the wrinkle in time where he is stuck in limbo. Girl power ftw.
The film flips between the real world and the surreal space time continuum, where stunning colours are used to bring the magical characters and vivid landscapes alive. It. Looks. Amazing.
A Wrinkle In Time is set to transport viewers to another dimension starting March 9, 2018.
