Disney's A WRINKLE IN TIME Release Date Moved Up
Disney's live-action adaptation of Madeline L'Engle's Newberry Medal-winning book A Wrinkle in Time today began production last week under the direction of Selma and The 13th director Ava DuVernay, and now there's some good news for those who have been waiting for a long time to see this book get a proper big screen treatment: the film's release date has been moved up.
Originally scheduled for December 25, 2018, the movie will now arrive in spring of that year. DuVernay announced the news with a video from the set of the crew doing the #mannequinchallenge, which I'm sure you've heard of since it's been all the rage online for the past week. If you have no idea what it is, you'll pick up on it pretty quickly when you watch the video:
A Wrinkle in Time follows a young girl named Meg (Storm Reid), her little brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), and their friend Calvin (Levi Miller) as they go on a search for her missing father (Chris Pine), a government scientist who was working on a top secret project involving an inter-dimensional tesseract. Joining the trio on their journey are three supernatural beings: Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), and Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon). Zach Galifianakis plays The Happy Medium, André Holland (Moonlight, Selma) plays Principal Jenkins, and Bellamy Young, Rowan Blanchard, and Will McCormack round out the cast.
The film now arrives on April 6, 2018.
