A Wrinkle in Time trailer introduces whimsical worlds, oddball characters

Worlds come to life

Disney released the second trailer for Ava DuVernay’s whimsical live-action adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time this evening during the American Music Awards. It can be seen above.

The new trailer comes just a few months after Disney debuted the first footage from the movie at the studio’s biennial D23 convention in July. The movie is an adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle’s 1963 fantasy book of the same name, and stars Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Storm Reid, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Michael Pena.

A Wrinkle in Time follows main character Meg Murry, as she, her brother and her best friend cross space to find her missing father, a physicist with some extraordinary information. This isn’t the first live-action adaptation the book has received; a made-for-TV movie starring Gregory Smith and Chris Potter was released in 2003.

A Wrinkle in Time is one of the next live-action movies to be produced and released directly from Disney proper, as opposed to one of its subsidiaries like Lucasfilm or Marvel Studios. It will be released on March 9, 2018.
