The highly-anticipated A Wrinkle in Time teaser trailer was unveiled today at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, based on the beloved science fantasy novel by Madeleine L’Engle published in 1963 by the same name.
While the trailer is not even two minutes long, it looks eerie and ethereal, with stunning landscape shots, over-the-top costuming, and understated no-name actors like Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, and Reese Witherspoon.
The film is the first live-action movie directed by a black woman with a budget of more than $100 million, Selma‘s Ava DuVernay, so it is already breaking barriers, even before its inevitable record sales (circle back to me next spring.)
We have to wait until March 9, 2018, but watch the trailer: I’m thinking it will be well worth the wait — and I’m not the only one. The book itself inspired many of us to believe in ourselves and to question authority in childhood, and for many, it defined their upbringing every bit as much as the Harry Potter series.

For those that never caught the A Wrinkle in Time bug: For a lot of us it was the 1st – or only – book that told us to question authority.
