The film is based on Madeleine L'Engle's beloved 1962 novel, which DuVernay discovered as an adult. The three of them appear together in a first look from EW, which makes you want to move back to college just so you can print it out and hang it on the wall of a dorm room. Check out the photos below!

To accompany Meg on her interplanetary journey, DuVernay recruited three world-class actresses to inhabit what are perhaps the best remembered parts of A Wrinkle in Time - the magical trio of eccentric guides, whom DuVernay describes as "three Mrs. Doubtfires". Which, Mindy Kaling as Mrs.

DuVernay told EW that she made a decision to tackle the project because she was inspired by the possibility of seeing characters of color in storylines and settings we don't usually see them in mainstream entertainment.

Set for release next year, the first character photos for Disney's live action movie "A Wrinkle in Time" surfaced Wednesday.

Earlier this morning we got an up-close-and-personal look at next year's Black Panther, and now we've got a round of new images from Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle In Time, which Disney is putting in theaters next year. Who, and Reese Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit. And it wouldn't be a girl-power galaxy quest without Chris Pine, who looks bearded and brooding as the other Dr. Murry.

Wrinkle also stars Chris Pine as Meg and Charles's missing father Mr. Murry, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as their mother Kate Murry. With these women, I wondered, could we make them women of different ages, body types, races? Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey will dazzle as Mrs.

"I am not concerned with purists who imagine Meg as a White girl with red hair", DuVernay said. Her character is one that, in her costumes and in working with Mindy, we wanted to bring in a remix of styles and cultures and customs from around the world. "What's more, in the ladies themselves, would we be able to simply mirror a more full broadness of gentility?" She dropped into the character so well, but it's also Oprah.
