Earlier this week, director Ava DuVernay revealed that the first trailer for her highly-anticipated adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time was coming on Saturday.
Now, it's finally here. On Saturday afternoon, the director shared the trailer, which you can see above and below.
A Wrinkle in Time is based on the classic young adult novel by Madeleine L'Engle. DuVernay, best known for her work on Selma and the documentary 13th, is the first African-American female director to helm a movie with a $100 million budget.
A Wrinkle in Time will be released on March 9, 2018, a month ahead of its originally announced release date. The film stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris Pine, Oprah, Mindy Kaling, and Reese Witherspoon. Storm Reid plays the lead role of Meg Murray.
Last fall, DuVernay talked to Collider about the project.
"It’s just a classic story, the kind of legacy of the book, and fans who love it and when you hear about why for such personal reasons," she explained at the time. "It’s a story with a girl at the center—a girl who time travels, travels the universe in search of someone she loves, her father, and in the process she finds herself. Kids fly and to ask Disney, 'Could these be brown kids?' and for them to say yes I was like, 'Let’s do it.' There are creatures, there are different planets. To think about, 'Wow, I could design those planets, what those planets look like. I get to do that?' That stuff is rare air, and so all that stuff immediately I was like, 'I’m in. I’m so in.' And it’s fun every single day."
