I wanted to share some very cool and exciting news about the upcoming Disney film A WRINKLE IN TIME. After an extensive search, The Walt Disney Studios is pleased to announce that 13-year-old Storm Reid will play the lead role of Meg Murry in the upcoming Disney live action adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s A WRINKLE IN TIME.

Reid’s first theatrical film role was in the Academy Award-winning 12 YEARS A SLAVE where she played Emily, and she has also appeared in AMERICAN GIRL: LEA TO THE RESCUE and SLEIGHT, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Most recently, she shot a starring role in Judy Greer’s directorial debut A HAPPENING OF MONUMENTAL PROPROTIONS (2017), alongside Allison Janney, Common and Bradley Whitford. She is represented by Stella Alex from the Savage Agency, Principato-Young Entertainment, and Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson.

Reid joins a cast which already includes Oprah Winfrey in the role of Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon in the role of Mrs. Whatsit and Mindy Kaling in the role of Mrs. Who. The actors shared the official news on Twitter.

The film is directed by Ava DuVernay (SELMA) from a script by Jennifer Lee (FROZEN). Jim Whitaker and Catherine Hand are producing the film, which will begin production later this year.

Check out the Twitter exchange between Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling confirming the news.
