When Willy Wonka sang the words “There is no life I know that compares with pure imagination,” it was because he couldn’t even have dared to dream about the casting news for Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time. Remember how excited you were when you heard about Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and precious little Storm Reid joining DuVernay’s screen utopia? Well, sit down and grab a glass of water, because after a wave of casting announcements today, we can now look forward to Zach Galifianakis, André Holland, and Rowan Blanchard, too, along with Bellamy Young, Will McCormack, Deric McCabe, and Levi Miller.

For those keeping score at home, here’s the character lineup so far:

Reid as Meg Murry

Winfrey as Mrs. Which

Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit

Kaling as Mrs. Who

Pine as Mr. Murry

Mbatha-Raw as Mrs. Murry

Galifianakis as The Happy Medium

Holland as Principal Jenkins

Miller as Calvin

McCabe as Charles Wallace

So for those living east of California, if you look to the west tomorrow and notice a warm glowing aura radiating from the horizon, it’s because production for A Wrinkle in Time is scheduled to start in Los Angeles.
