0

In celebration of the New Year, Disney released new animated character posters and a brand new trailer for its film, “A Wrinkle in Time.”

The film is an adaptation of Madeline L’Engle’s classic novel, first published in 1962. Ava DuVernay, best known for directing “Selma,” and “13th,” helms this highly anticipated sci fi/fantasy film.

“A Wrinkle in Time” stars Storm Reid as a young girl who finds herself on a mission to locate her missing scientist father (Chris Pine). Her mission begins with a visit by three other-worldly beings: Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling). Joined by her brother (Deric McCabe) and a friend (Levi Miller), the three travel across time and space to find Dr. Murry.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zach Galifianakis, and Michael Peña also star.

The script was adapted by Jennifer Lee, who won an Academy Award for the animated hit, “Frozen.” Lee also wrote “Wreck-It Ralph,” helped create the story for “Zootopia,” and will return to co-direct “Frozen 2.”

Although exact numbers have not been released, DuVernay becomes only the third woman ever to direct a film with a budget of more than $100 million. She joins Kathryn Bigelow (“K-19: The Widowmaker”) and Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”) in the exclusive club. They will soon be added to their ranks Niki Caro (“Mulan), Anna Boden (“Captain Marvel”) and Gina Prince-Bythewood (“Black Cat and Silver Sable”).

Ava DuVernay is the first woman of color to direct a film of more than $100 million.

Excitement for “A Wrinkle in Time” is high, with many critics citing it on their lists of Most Anticipated Films of 2018.

The film will be opening in theaters nationwide on March 9.
