Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling are starring in the Ava DuVernay directed Disney Movie, “A Wrinkle In Time” and EW has shared some first look pic’s from the movie that’s due out March 2018.

A Wrinkle In Time

Disney’s upcoming fantasy, A Wrinkle in Time is  about an ordinary teenager named Meg (newcomer Storm Reid) who’s whisked on a cosmic adventure to find her missing scientist father (Chris Pine) with the help of three chimerical celestial beings who help her “wrinkle” time and space:  Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling),  Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey).

Director Ava DuVernay on casting Oprah Winfrey  to play Mrs. Which:

“I mean, when you’re trying to cast the wisest woman in the world, what’s the question? You go and you call her and you’re glad that you have her number on speed dial,” DuVernay beams. “[The character] is so much of what she teaches and shared through her shows over the years, through her magazine and OWN, about owning your light and conquering darkness and how we have to power ourselves through this life in a certain way and look out for each other. She dropped into the character so well, but it’s also Oprah. When we see her in Henrietta Lacks, she’s not Oprah to me. When I saw her in The Butler, she became Gloria to me. But in this, because of the things that Mrs. Which says, her Oprah-ness is really helpful.”

Ava DuVernay on casting Reese Witherspoon in the movie:

“I was looking for that innocence, that thing Reese plays so well, but also that great power and precision, and funny. The character has so much funny going on, you really need someone who’s proven and who’s done a bit of it all, and that’s Reese. It was so lucky that she was a fan of the book and wanted to come play with me.”

Ava DuVernay on casting Mindy Kaling:

“I wanted a black Mrs., a white Mrs., and a Mrs. that was not either, and Mindy was the first one that came to mind. I feel like we don’t talk about a lot of the other colors and cultures enough, and Mindy is so beautiful to me. Her character is one that, in her costumes and in working with Mindy, we wanted to bring in a remix of styles and cultures and customs from around the world. She was a real partner in that. She was working with two legends, but I think she’s a legend in the making in terms of what she does and being a fresh voice as a comedic actress.”
