Entertainment Weekly has been posting all kinds of exclusives from its new Comic-Con issue, including several intriguing first-look images from Disney's "A Wrinkle in Time." The movie follows teen Meg Murry (newcomer Storm Reid) and her cosmic adventure to find her missing scientist father (Chris Pine) with the help of three celestial beings who help her wrinkle time and space: philosophizing Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), inquisitive Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and wizened Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey). EW's photos also feature Levi Miller as Meg's good friend Calvin O'Keefe.
Ava DuVernay told EW she never read Madeline L'Engle's 1962 novel as a child, but she was drawn to adapt the book when she discovered it as an adult:
"I saw so much beauty in it, but also so much meaning. She's a very radical thinker and she embedded her sense of what society should and could be in this piece, and a lot of it I agree with. And through that, the story of this girl saving the world and being out there in the universe slaying the darkness, it also says a lot about slaying our own dragons."

"A Wrinkle in Time" -- also starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zach Galifianakis, André Holland, Deric McCabe, Bellamy Young, and Will McCormack -- is now scheduled to open March 9, 2018.
