The new A Wrinkle in Time trailer focuses on Meg Murry.
Today The Walt Disney Studios released a brand new trailer to promote their upcoming feature adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. Throughout the course of the trailer, we get more of what the story will be about and see more of a focus on Meg Murry.
In previous trailers, there was a heavier focus on Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Who. This was something that had greatly annoyed me because the original A Wrinkle in Time story focuses on Meg and her journey. However, with big names like Oprah, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling, it made sense to focus on those three in the promotion. I am very happy that we are getting more of Meg.
A brief synopsis of the film is below:
The movie is based on a children’s series by the same name. Meg and Charles Wallace are aided by Calvin and 3 interesting women, Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Who in the search for their father who disappeared during an experiment he was working on for the government. Their travels take them around the universe to a place unlike any other. They must learn to trust each other and to understand that everyone is different.
