Ava DuVernay's adaptation of the popular kids book A Wrinkle In Time is going to be a big deal, I think. 2018 is a big year for Disney franchises putting the spotlight on people of color. We have Black Panther in February and A Wrinkle In Time in March. It's awesome we're finally getting a solo film centered on a black superhero, but I think it's going to be an even bigger deal seeing young Storm Reid playing Meg Murray in an adventure story like A Wrinkle In Time.
Both will be inspirational for a whole new generation, but I have a feeling young women in particular are going to relate to the story being told in Wrinkle In Time. If DuVernay knocks it out of the park you're going to be seeing quite a cult spring up around this movie.
Disney released a new poster for the flick which shows off the magical beings that help young Meg on her journey to find her missing scientist father.
