When I read a book a movie plays in my head. Characters and scenes are brought to life through my imagination. Sometimes people and companies take that book and create a visual re-telling of it. Sometimes that re-telling is crazy similar to the scenes brought to life in my head and sometimes it’s different. Either way I LOVE it! I always get so upset when a great book is over. I want to re-live it again and when a story is told on screen I get to do that again. I just found out that Disney is doing this with yet another amazing book from my childhood – A Wrinkle In Time!
I just realized that the boys haven’t read this yet so a new copy is on it’s way to me. In the meantime, Disney just announced that they found their “Meg” for their upcoming version of A Wrinkle In Time – “Said director Ava DuVernay,”After an extensive search that spanned multiple dimensions, we’re overjoyed to welcome Storm Reid to WRINKLE IN TIME as our beloved “Meg.” Storm is a tremendously talented young actress who embodies the hopes, dreams and spirit of a character much loved by audiences worldwide for generations. I can’t wait to work with Storm as we chronicle Meg’s epic quest.”
She’ll be joining some amazingly talented women. I love this Twitter exchange between Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling confirming the news.
There are no dates or photos available yet but I’m excited to see the info unfold on A Wrinkle In Time! What do you think? Do you like book to screen adaptations? Are you a Wrinkle In Time fan?
