Disney's "A Wrinkle in Time" - Official Teaser Trailer

When I was in fifth or sixth grade, I read Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, and quickly followed up with the next two titles in the then trilogy, A Wind in the Door and A Swiftly Tilting Planet. These young adult novels got me hooked on science fiction. They presented fascinating ideas and compelling stories, which I've since shared with my own kids.

A Wrinkle in Time presents a tale of adventure across time and space as 13 year-old Meg Murry, her young brother Charles Wallace, and her friend, Calvin O'Keefe, set off to find and rescue her missing father, with the help of three supernatural beings. This is in many ways a classic tale of good versus evil, with a side of budding love interest. But probably what grabbed me the most was that it centred on a female protagonist.

You can guess how excited I am that Disney has taken this on, and they will be releasing a film version of A Wrinkle in Time, on March 9, 2018. This will feature an amazing cast, including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Michael Peňa,, Zach Galifianakis and Chris Pine, and introducing Storm Reid, as Meg.

The official teaser trailer was released this week at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim. Check it out:

What do you think? Have you read the book? Will you be adding this to your list of movies to see next spring? I'm going to re-read the original in preparation.
