At some point in your young adult life, you may have read A Wrinkle In Time, a sci-fi book about a girl, Meg Murry, who sets out with her youngest brother and friend Calvin to find her father, a scientist who went missing after doing some research on time travel.
With the help of the mysterious Mrs.
Ws, the threesome find themselves traveling throughout the vast universe to find Meg's dad.
A Wrinkle in Time may have been first released in 1962, but the book is now being adapted by Ava DuVernay — best known for her Oscar-nominated Selma — for the big screen.
The film will star Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and newbie Storm Reed as Meg Murry.
