I just found out some very exciting news about the upcoming Disney film A WRINKLE IN TIME! After an extensive search, Walt Disney Studios has announced that 13-year-old Storm Reid will play the lead role of Meg Murry in the upcoming Disney live action adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle’s A WRINKLE IN TIME.
I read this book as a child and Rose has listened to the audio books many times over the years so we are both excited!
Reid joins a cast which already includes Oprah Winfrey in the role of Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon in the role of Mrs. Whatsit and Mindy Kaling in the role of Mrs. Who. The actors shared the official news on Twitter.

I highly suggest reading (or re-reading) A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle before it comes out in theaters. Head to your nearest library or grab a copy on Amazon here. Better yet, grab the entire quintet of the series A Wrinkle in Time here!
Since they are in the early stages of casting we don't have a release date or photos but we will keep you posted as we get the details! In the meantime, have you checked out the full 2016 Disney movie line up for the year yet? Take a look at our post!
