Hello! Oprah is going to be in "A Wrinkle In Time!" That is all!
You get A Wrinkle in Time! And you get A Wrinkle in Time! We’re all getting Wrinkles in Time, thanks to Ms. Oprah Winfrey herself, who is in talks to join the movie. This begs us to ask the question: best casting, or BEST CASTING EVER?
The new Wrinkle in Time moving is coming to us straight from brilliant director Ava DuVernay, who is helming the project for Disney. And when you’re adapting a very beloved YA novel for the big screen, you want your closest, and best, friends surrounding you every step of the way. In steps Oprah.
The former reigning talk show queen is slated to sign onto the movie to play the character of Mrs. Witch, one of the strange and magical ~beings~ that help young Meg Murry on her quest through time and space to rescue her father. Mrs. Witch is, of course, joined by Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit, but those roles haven’t been cast yet.
However, just take a second to imagine the perfect trio of these characters, one of them being Oprah. It’s honestly too much for us to even handle, this casting is so epic.
This is not the first time Oprah and DuVernay have worked together. Previously, Oprah appeared in DuVernay’s Selma, where she also served as a producer.
The film is in the very early stages of production, so we’ve still got a ways to go before we can see this sure-to-be-beautiful movie with our own eyes. GET EXCITED.
