Storm Reid , Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and Oprah Winfrey the stars of highly anticipated movie ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ are the Cover stars for the latest Times magazine issue.
‘A Wrinkle in Time’ is a Disney movie based on Madeleine L’Engle’s 1962 novel of the same name, will come out on March 9, 2018. The film brings to life the story of Meg Murry, a gangly adolescent who travels across dimensions to rescue her scientist father. Meg is guided by a trio of guardian angels collectively called “the Mrs.” The book, and the movie, is about what it means to be a source of light in a world in which darkness seems only to proliferate, it also makes the case for thinking independently when conformity is the norm which is something the world could use right now, I personally can’t wait for it’s release.
As was stated in the Times article, as a novel, A Wrinkle in Time has been a mainstay of middle school English curricula for decades. It introduced the spiritual antecedent to Katniss Everdeen, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Hermione Granger. And it posed a series of philosophical questions that are no less relevant in the era of Trump and Putin than they were in the time of Kennedy and Khrushchev. High stakes, in other words. As Winfrey sees it, Wrinkle the movie heightens the stakes even more. “I felt like we were making the new Wizard of Oz for another generation.”
And one would expect the fashion to be about the same, futuristic, bright and colorful and if the trailer is anything to by, that’s what we’ll be getting. From multi colored princess-y ball dresses, to metallica and bright embellishments this tale promises to bring fantasies to life.
Though the cover of the magazine is bland but bold in true Times fashion, which contrasts with the style of the movie, it does present the intellectual and social representation of the movie.
In the issue the director and cast talk about the movie, Catherine Hand the producer who teamed up to bring to life a 53 year old dream spoke about why it took so long. Read more about it on Time.com.
