The first teaser for Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of the Madeleine L’Engle classic premiered today. It looks great.
For those who don’t know, the groundbreaking, science fiction novel tells the story of Meg Murry’s search for her long-missing father, a scientist experimenting with faster-than-light travel. Helped by her younger brother, her school crush, and a trio of mystical women, Meg travels across the universe to save her father from a dark force that intends to take over the galaxy.
A Wrinkle in Time has been continuously in print since its 1963 publication. It was adapted into a less-than-great TV movie in 2003, a play, an opera, and a very well received graphic novel in 2010.
