Walt Disney has released a new trailer for the upcoming Ava DuVernay film A Wrinkle in Time based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Madeleine L’Engle. Featuring an ensemble cast including Storm Reid, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, André Holland, Zach Galifianakis, and Oprah Winfrey, A Wrinkle in Time is the story of a young black girl, Meg Murray.
What if a straight line is not the shortest distance between two points? What if there is a fifth dimension which can make you reach places instantly? The recently released trailer for A Wrinkle in Time is all about that possibility. Taking us through a strange yet visually stunning world with Meg Murray, her younger brother Charles Wallace Murray, and school friend Calvin O’Keefe after Meg’s father disappears, this new look of A Wrinkle in Time has piqued our interest.
