A stunning new trailer for Disney's A Wrinkle in Time shows beautiful and dangerous worlds beyond our own. Adapted from the popular and beloved children's science fiction book by Madeleine L'Engle, this newest trailer shows that the stunning worlds and creatures described in the book are being breathtakingly brought to life on the big screen.
While previous trailers have shown some of the fantastic worlds where the character Meg travels to in the company of her brother Charles Wallace and her friend Calvin - as have posters and TV spots - this trailer shows quite a bit of new footage. And while it provides plenty of chances to see some of the incredible worlds and creatures that the children encounter on their mission to rescue Meg and Charle Wallace's father, it also shows a lot more of what Meg is experiencing at home. While the first trailer gave a lot of focus to her father and the second largely focused on the people around Meg, this trailer tells the beginnings of her story.
Newly released by Disney, the third trailer opens on Meg, who is struggling both in school and at home because of how much she misses her father - who vanished awhile ago. Her principal and mother both try to talk to her, but only Calvin - a boy from school - is able to reach her. When she says that she misses her father "More than anything in the universe" the mysterious and magical Mrs. Whatsis (Reese Witherspoon) shows up and suggests they find him. Aided by her companions Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey) the children travel the universe through "wrinkles" in order to find and save Meg's beloved father.
The film also stars Zach Galifianakis as The Happy Medium, Gubu Mbatha-Raw and Chris Pine as Meg and Charles Wallace's parents, and as a mysterious character called Red - most likely The Man with Red Eyes - is Michael Peña. Deric McCabe plays Charles Wallace, Levi Miller is Calvin, and Meg is portrayed by Storm Reid.
A Wrinkle in Time is among the most beloved children's books of the last century. It's highly well received and reviewed and won the Newbery Medal as well as several other awards when it was first published in the early sixties. It's no easy task, taking a book which is so loved by so many, and making a film adaption which lives up to it. But judging by the trailers already released, writer Jennifer Lee and director Ava DuVernay were clearly up to the challenge. The trailers indicate that the movie follows the story of the book closely, all the while interpreting L'Engle's fantasy in visually striking color and detail. From what is seen in this trailer, A Wrinkle in Time certainly provides plenty of eye candy, while honoring the story it's telling.
