Are you ready to tesser to a vibrant world of science-fiction fantasy? Disney’s new feature-length live-action adaptation of the classic 1962 novel “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’Engle is set for release next month, and in celebration the studio held an enlightening press junket with the film’s cast and creative team in Los Angeles over this past weekend.
Participating in the event’s press conference were “A Wrinkle in Time” director Ava DuVernay (“Selma”), screenwriter Jennifer Lee (“Frozen”), and cast members Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Dr. Kate Murry), Chris Pine (Dr. Alex Murry), Storm Reid (Meg Murry), Oprah Winfrey (Mrs. Which), Reese Witherspoon (Mrs. Whatsit), Mindy Kaling (Mrs. Who), Zach Galifianakis (The Happy Medium), Deric McCabe (Charles Wallace), Rowan Blanchard (Veronica), and Levi Miller (Calvin).

On display outside the hall where the press conference was held were three elaborate costumes from “A Wrinkle in Time” (different from the ones currently on exhibit at Disneyland Resort) worn by the characters of Mrs. Which (played by Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling).

Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time” will be released into theaters nationwide on Friday, March 9.
