Disney has taken the beginning of the New Year and turned it into a time to remind audiences that it is only three months before we get to witness Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time with a brand new TV spot and Motion Posters.
The video and posters were released via the films Facebook page, with the Posters emanating a certain familiarity with J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The posters feature Oprah Winfrey as Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit, and Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Who.
Based on the novel Madeleine L’Engle the story follows an ordinary teenager named Meg (newcomer Storm Reid) who’s whisked on a cosmic adventure to find her missing scientist father (Chris Pine) with the help of three chimerical celestial beings who help her “wrinkle” time and space: philosophizing Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), inquisitive Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and wizened Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey).
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Ava DuVernay (Selma), The film includes Oscar Winner Reese Witherspoon (Big Little Lies), Chris Pine (Wonder Woman), Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror), Zach Galifianakis (Masterminds), Andre Holland (Moonlight), Michael Pena (War on Everyone) and Oscar Nominee Oprah Winfrey (The Butler).
The film is set for a March 2018 release.
