Ava DuVernay debuted the first teaser trailer for her upcoming film A Wrinkle In Time on Saturday. The director took the stage at D23, Disney's fan expo, to preview the movie.
Starring Chris Pine, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and Storm Reid, the film is an adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle's 1963 novel. In the film, Reid and her siblings travel through time to find their father (Pine).
“I saw myself in it,” DuVernay said before introducing the trailer. “And I saw so many different kinds of people in it and personalities and I thought, gosh, if I could bring my idea of it to the classic novel, maybe we can make something new."
It was announced earlier this month that DuVernay will write and direct a limited series about the Central Park Five for Netflix.
