Exclusive: Go behind the scenes of 'A Wrinkle in Time' with Oprah Winfrey
Disney's star-studded adaptation of the popular children's book 'A Wrinkle in Time' challenges viewers to think differently about time and space, darkness and light.
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling, bejeweled and festooned in fantastical garb, are peering over a young teen who lies crumpled on the ground.
“She’s giving in to the darkness,” says a hushed Winfrey, whose eyebrows have been replaced with clusters of purple gemstones.
“Breathe, sweetie,” coaxes a flame-haired Witherspoon, as a regally costumed Kaling looks on, worried. Storm Reid, then 13 and playing A Wrinkle in Time’s protagonist, Meg Murry, flutters her eyes.
