a wrinkle in time

Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Whatsit come to life, embodied by Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon in a new series of motion posters released by Disney to promote Ava DuVernay‘s upcoming adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved sci fi/fantasy novel, ‘A Wrinkle In Time’.  Winfrey, Kaling and Witherspoon play three mystic sisters who guide the story’s young protagonist Meg Murry (played by Storm Reid) who must travel the cosmos in search of her missing father (Chris Pine).  The cast also includes Zach Galifianakis, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Levi Miller, Michael Peña and Bellamy Young.

‘A Wrinkle In Time’ arrives in theaters on March 9, 2018.  This actually marks Disney’s second adaptation of L’Engle’s novel, following a 2003 TV movie.  Unfortunately, that version of ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ was postponed numerous times and cut down from a four hour miniseries to a single three-hour movie.  Said L’Engle at the time, “Yes, I expected it to be bad, and it is.”  Hopefully, reaction to DuVernay’s version will be more positive.  If the film is successful, it could lead to further installments, as this is just an adaptation of L’Engle’s first novel in a series of five.

What do you think so far?  The footage from ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ is certainly lush, but we’ll have to see whether it is all flash or if there is some real substance behind it.
