There is another Disney property that is coming out next year that no one is really talking about. A Wrinkle in Time, based on the classic novel by Madeline L’Engle and directed by Ava DuVernay, is coming out this March, but we haven’t seen anything from it yet aside from a teaser poster that just features the logo. We’re still waiting on any footage, but according to DuVernay, that’s going to change later this month. She confirmed via her official Twitter account that the first trailer is going to premiere at the D23 Expo later this month.

A Wrinkle in Time marks the first live-action movie for Frozen writer Jennifer Lee, with DuVernay having worked on many award winning projects, including Selma. While the book has been popular since its 1963 release, aside from a Canadian made-for-TV movie, there haven’t been any major adaptations yet. Disney actually purchased the rights to the book back in 2010, but it was sitting in development hell until August of 2014 when Disney announced that Lee would be taking on the project.
Summary: After the disappearance of her scientist father, three peculiar beings send Meg, her brother, and her friend to space in order to find him.
A Wrinkle In Time, directed by Ava DuVernay, stars Storm Reid, Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, and Zach Galifianakis. It will be released March 9th, 2018.
