There is a lot of squealing going on right now.. Disney’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ trailer is out and it looks absolutely fabulous. The film, which is an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic promises to take the audience across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and ultimately, the triumph of love. Yes, it does sound like a Christopher Nolan movie with the most heroic star cast – Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, and main protagonist Meg Murray is played by newcomer Storm Reid.
In the teaser trailer, you see Meg, Charles, and Calvin traveling through space and time to rescue Meg’s father, played by Chris Pine. He’s trapped on a planet called Camazotz, which has been overtaken by an unnamed evil that threatens the entire universe. Meg and her crew travel through wormholes to these planets which look colorful and a bit similar to our very own planet. The glorious costumes and makeup of Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon will leave you mesmerized with an equally haunting cover of ‘Sweet Dreams’ by Eurythmics.
The book was originally published in 1963 and was written by Madeleine L’Engle. With a budget of $100 million, this film is sure to entertain us all. The movie won’t hit theaters until March 9, 2018. We will just have to wait a little bit longer.
