With all the excitement surrounding Marvel's Black Panther dropping this coming February, I barely see A Wrinkle in Time getting any buzz and I'm starting to wonder, am I the only one thats freaking EXCITED about this movie? If you have no idea who/what this movie is about I'm going to give you a quick briefing via Youtube trailer before I tell you WHY you need to be excited about seeing this flick.
From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic `which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.
If that trailer alone wasn't dope enough for you to get excited then first and foremost, you're bugging! But more importantly I'm about to give you just a FEW of the reasons you need to get excited about Disney's A Wrinkle in Time.
Your childhood reading list is coming to life
It's quite possible that I'm just a nerd but I can remember vividly reading A Wrinkle in Time while in school. I want to say that it was a school assignment that drew me in, but I was a pretty avid reader and read for fun back then (wish I had time now) so it's possible I just came across the book myself and read it. Either way, I can't wait to see the book come to life on the big screen and see if it's everything I imagined while I was reading it back then.
Oprah Winfrey stars as Mrs. Which
Seriously, do I NEED to say anything else? If I were looking for anyone in the world to help safely guide me through time and space via tessering it would be MUVA. And can we talk about the LOOKS she's already serving all up and through trailers/posters everywhere?
Diversity and #BLACKGIRLMAGIC
The cast of A Wrinkle in Time is so beautifully diverse starring Michael Pena, Zach Galifianakis and little Deric McCabe! Ava DuVernay introduces us to Storm Reid who plays awkward teen Meg Murry. In the book, Meg is most definitely described as a young Caucasian girl so to have Storm Reid star in the lead role opens up the door for so many more girls to identify with Meg in a new way. And I mean, Meg basically saves the entire world so there's that for #BLACKGIRLMAGIC.
Lessons on Lessons on Lessons
Because what is a good story without them? Though saving the world is dope, so much more is learned during Meg, CW and Calvin's adventure. Meg learns to embrace her individuality, lead with her own light and the triumph of love is a HEAVY theme.
