Watch the first trailer for A Wrinkle in Time Trailer

“What if we are here for a reason? What if we’re part of something truly divine?”

Ava DuVernay in just a few short years have become a director whose name stirs instant excitement when her name becomes attached to a project. After the release and monumental success of her film Selma, she had the opportunity to possibly direct the Black Panther Marvel film but instead, went in the direction of a different Disney property, a Wrinkle in Time.

And after the trailer we’re so happy she did.

Allowing a filmmaker such as DuVernay who possesses such a keen eye for intricate and subtle artistry, who makes simple and realism based images whimsical, a Disney budget is allows a picture that’s something wondrous to behold. Based on the popular children’s novel by Madeleine L’Engle and featuring a starry, eclectic cast including Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and newcomer Storm Reid, the film should instantly be on your most anticipated list. We can’t wait to see the twists and turns this film takes with such a beloved story.

A Wrinkle in Time hits theaters March 9th, 2018.

After the disappearance of her scientist father, three peculiar beings send Meg, her brother, and her friend to space in order to find him.
