We get a first look at Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and Oprah Winfrey as the three celestial beings in A WRINKLE IN TIME.
Entertainment Weekly just released photos from the movie adaptation of Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle In Time, which include our first look at some of the characters, including the celestial beings who guide the young protagonists to finding their father.
The celestial beings are played by the highly talented Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and Oprah Winfrey, who are pretty celestial in real life. Director Ava DuVerney had a purpose when choosing the ones who would take on those roles.
“My whole process with this film was, what if? With these women, I wondered, could we make them women of different ages, body types, races? Could we bring in culture, bring in history in their costumes? And in the women themselves, could we just reflect a fuller breadth of femininity?”

A Wrinkle in Time is set to be released in theaters March 9, 2018.
