After dazzling us all with the incredible first photos, Disney has released the first trailer for A Wrinkle in Time and prepare to get MAJOR goosebumps.
“Your father has accomplished something extrodinary but also dangerous,” Oprah Winfrey’s Mrs. Which explains to Meg Murray (Storm Reid) in the trailer. “He’s trapped by a darkness that’s actively spreading throughout the universe and the only one who can stop it is you.”
In just two minutes, the teaser trailer — which was unveiled during D23, Disney’s biannual three day fan expo —gives us a brief taste of exactly how incredible the 2018 film is set to be.
Tell me you’re not HYPED. Between the visuals, Eurythmics cover, and OPRAH, this trailer has — as Stefon would say — everything!
Directed by the incredible Ava DuVernay and starring Reid, Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Mindy Kaling, the film follows Meg and her two companions – her younger brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), and friend Calvin (Levi Miller) — on a mission through space and time to rescue her father, the world renowned scientist Alex Murray (Pine). The three are guided be celestial beings, Mrs. Who (Kaling), Mrs. Whatsit (Witherspoon), and Mrs. Which (Winfrey). Based on the award-winning 1962 book by Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle In Time is set to be one of the highest anticipated films of 2018.
There’s seriously so much to unpack in this trailer.
