Watch: Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling Star in Disney's 'A Wrinkle in Time' -- Directed by Ava DuVernay [Video]

The first trailer for Disney’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ — directed by Ava DuVernay — has arrived!

The movie is based on the classic young adult novel by Madeleine L’Engle and 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 Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, and Reese Witherspoon.

Ava spoke with Collider about the film last fall, saying:

“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.”
