Disney released a new trailer for the upcoming “A Wrinkle in Time” adaptation, filled with magical moments and wondrous special-effects. The film won’t hit theaters until later this Spring, but you can watch the trailer and get excited for new release. This isn’t the first teaser released for the film, but it does offer an excellent first-look at the extended cast.

The new adaptation was directed by Ava DuVernay, Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time” is based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic of the same name. The studio teased the story saying that it “takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love”.

Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

The screenplay for the film was written by Oscar winner Jennifer Lee. “A Wrinkle in Time” stars: two-time Academy Award nominee Oprah Winfrey, Oscar and Emmy winner Reese Witherspoon, Emmy nominee Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peňa and introducing Storm Reid, with two-time Emmy winner Zach Galifianakis and Emmy nominee Chris Pine.

Produced by Jim Whitaker and Catherine Hand with Doug Merrifield serving as executive producer, the film also boasts an impressive creative team featuring some of the most talented artisans working today, including: Tobias Schliessler, ASC as director of photography, Naomi Shohan as production designer, Oscar-nominee Spencer Averick as film editor, two-time Academy Award-nominee Paco Delgado as costume designer and four time Emmy nominee Ramin Djawadi as composer.

“A Wrinkle in Time” will hit theaters on March 9, 2018. March will be a pretty exciting month for the box-office. Also opening that month is the action-adventurer “Tomb Raider” from Warner Bros. Pictures, and the Jennifer Lawrence spy-thriller “Red Sparrow“.
