Director Ava DuVernay has taken to Twitter to reveal a first look at theÂ A Wrinkle In Time movie, which is based on the Madeleine L'Engle novel.
A Wrinkle in TimeÂ has an April 6, 2018 release date and starsÂ Storm ReidÂ as Meg Murry,Â Oprah WinfreyÂ as Mrs. Which,Â Reese WitherspoonÂ as Mrs. Whatsit,Â Mindy KalingÂ as Mrs. Who,Â Chris PineÂ as Mr. Murry,Â Gugu Mbatha-RawÂ as Mrs. Murry,Â Zach GalifianakisÂ as The Happy Medium,Â AndrĂ© HollandÂ as Principal Jenkins,Â Levi MillerÂ as Calvin,Â Deric McCabeÂ as Charles Wallace, andÂ Bellamy Young,Â Rowan Blanchard, andÂ Will McCormack.Â
The book is described on Amazon as:
It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.
"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."
A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book.Â A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.
A Wrinkle in TimeÂ is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal.Â
