New ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Poster Is Super Trippy, Teases New Trailer on the Way
If you took psychedelic mushrooms then watched reruns of The Oprah Winfrey Show, the results might look similar to Oprah in Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle In Time. In the Disney movie, the talk show host/actress/greatest human ever sports billowy white hair, glitter-speckled lips and eye lids, rhinestone-covered eyebrows, and glitzy costumes; it’s certainly a #look. Now a new poster of the upcoming Disney movie shows off just how trippy of an adventure it will be.
DuVernay’s fantasy film, an adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle 1963 novel, follows a young girl, Megan (Storm Reid), traveling through alternate dimensions of time and space to save her missing scientist father. Along the way she meets three celestial beings, Oprah’s Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon’s Mrs. Whatsit, and Mindy Kaling’s Mrs. Who. The first dazzling trailer gave us a little taste of the wild inter-universe journey DuVernay will take us on, and the latest one sheet captures the rippled layers (wrinkles?) of time as well.
See? Not to equate a children’s movie with psychedelic drugs but… hey, it’s totally trippy! We’ll be able to get another extended look at the $100 million Disney adventure – the first time a woman of color will be directing a movie with that budget – this weekend. During the American Music Awards on Sunday, Disney will drop the new trailer for the movie. Here’s the full synopsis:
From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.
A Wrinkle In Time also stars Chris Pine, Zach Galifianakis, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Michael Peña. The film hits theaters March 9, 2018.
