Sweet dreams are made of this: Disney released the first full trailer for A Wrinkle In Time, the studio’s big adaptation of the classic 1963 novel by Madeline L’Engle, at the AMAs. Directed by Selma’s Ava DuVernay, the first woman of color to helm a movie budgeted at over $100 million, A Wrinkle in Time follows the interplanetary adventures of young Meg Murry and her genius brother Charles Wallace as they try to track down their missing scientist father (Chris Pine). Along the way, they’re aided by an eccentric neighbor Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), her colleague Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling, who has said that her character will quote liberally from classical scholars and Jay-Z), and finally, the formidable Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey).
Earlier today at Vulture Festival LA, DuVernay told us this is the movie, with its young black heroine, that she would have wanted to see herself when she was ten years old. You can take a look at Oprah, Reese, and Mindy in the first trailer above, though, owing to our relatively primitive powers of space-time travel, you can’t fully witness A Wrinkle in Time in theaters until March 9, 2018. Alas!
