Disney Pictures has released a new featurette for filmmaker Ava Duvernay’s upcoming adaptation of the famed Madeleine L’Engle novel “A Wrinkle in Time”. The clip has gone online following its airing during the broadcast of the 49th Annual NAACP Image Awards.
The focus here is on the ‘effortless diversity’ with its cast and characters and the lush visual world of DuVernay’s take on L’Engle’s famously sketchy descriptions of the universe she created.
In the film Meg Murry and her little brother, Charles Wallace, have been without their scientist father for five years ever since he discovered a new planet and used the concept known as a tesseract to travel there.
Joined by Meg’s classmate Calvin O’Keefe and guided by the three mysterious astral travelers known as Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, the children brave a dangerous journey to a planet that possesses all of the evil in the universe.
Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Pea, Storm Reid, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Zach Galifianakis, and Chris Pine star in the film which opens March 9th.
