Ava DuVernay’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Gets Spring 2018 Release Date

Disney has set Ava DuVernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” for release on April 6, 2018.

DuVernay made the announcement on her Twitter account with the film’s star, newcomer Storm Reid, at the end of a two-minute video posted Monday. That video featured the cast and crew of more than 100 of “A Wrinkle in Time” as part of its very own take on the Mannequin Challenge.

The time-travel tale also stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Galifianakis, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Mindy Kaling. Jennifer Lee, who wrote and co-directed “Frozen” with Chris Buck, is penning the adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s book for Disney. Shooting started last week in Los Angeles.

The California Film Commission selected “A Wrinkle in Time” in August for an $18 million tax credit as part of the state’s incentive program to keep films in California. It said that “A Wrinkle in Time” will bring $85 million in qualified spending to California with nearly 400 cast and crew members employed, and $44 million will be paid in wages to below-the-line workers.

DuVernay, the director of “Selma,” came on to “A Wrinkle in Time” in February. The story follows a group of children as they travel through time and visit strange worlds in order to find their missing father. Reid plays the oldest daughter, Meg Murray, in the movie.
