Once upon a time, there was an awkward high school student, Meg Murry, who could travel through time and space!

A Wrinkle in Time is an upcoming American science fantasy adventure film set to be released by Walt Disney on March 9, 2018. The movie is directed by Ava DuVernay from a screenplay written by Jennifer Lee, and based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Madeleine L’Engle.
Madeleine L’Engle (1918-2007) was the Newbery Medal-winning author of more than 60 books, including the much-loved A Wrinkle in Time. Born in 1918, L’Engle grew up in New York City, Switzerland, South Carolina and Massachusetts. Her father was a reporter and her mother had studied to be a pianist, and their house was always full of musicians and theater people. L’Engle graduated cum laude from Smith College, then returned to New York to work in the theater. Her science fantasy classic A Wrinkle in Time was awarded the 1963 Newbery Medal.
The film stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, Storm Reid, Zach Galifianakis, and Chris Pine.
After Meg Murray learns that her astrophysicist father Dr. Alex Murry is being held captive on a distant planet deep in the grip of a universe-spanning evil, she works with her highly intelligent younger brother Charles Wallace, her classmate Calvin O’Keefe, and three astral travelers, Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit, to save him. What an adventure!
