Disney's A Wrinkle in Time has hired Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi to create the music for the upcoming film. Directed by Ava DuVernay, the movie is an adaption of the classic sci fi book series written by Madeleine L'Engle. It is currently in post-production, with DuVernay occasionally sharing Instagram stories from her work in the edit bay.
A Wrinkle in Time tells the story of a young girl named Meg Murray (Storm Reid) who goes on a journey with her brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) and a classmate, Calvin (Levi Miller), to find her scientist father (Chris Pine) who was working on a mysterious project when he disappeared. Their search leads them on an adventure through time and space. Along the way the kids receive help from a trio of immortal beings: Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling).
DuVunery took to Twitter to announce Djawadi's involvement in the film. She praised the composer saying, "I've listened to his music for years and swooned." DuVernay also posted a photo of the two of them together inside the edit bay for A Wrinkle in Time (in front of an image as Reid on a monitor behind them), as you can see below:

Djawadi has had a prolific career in both film and TV. While he best known for creating the no- iconic music for Game of Thrones, he has also composed the music for HBO's other big hit, Westworld, The Strain on FX, and Prison Break on FOX. Djawadi was also the man behind the rocking first Iron Man score, the heroic tinged Pacific Rim, and the upcoming Kate Winslet and Idris Elba film, The Mountain Between Us to name a few. His ability to evoke emotion and highlight action makes him the perfect choice for A Wrinkle in Time, which mixes fantastical adventures with a story about family.
The film may still be months away, but excitement is building for A Wrinkle in Time. Despite being published in 1963, the book has never been adapted for the big screen (it was a Canadian TV series in 2003 though). Between the trailer that was released at D23, the diverse cast, and the talent behind the camera with DuVernay, Djawadi, and Frozen's Jennifer Lee writing the script, the beloved novel seems to be in more than good hands. A Wrinkle in Time also looks to be a big movie for Disney in a year that is already chock full of exciting releases (including, Marvel's Black Panther in February and Avengers: Infinity War in May). DuVernay's film will offer audiences a break from superhero fare, even as it tells the story of a different kind of hero.
