Teaser: Oprah Winfrey stars in Disney's 'A Wrinkle in Time' with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling

The first official teaser for Disney's 'A Wrinkle in Time' is here and it seems to have all the great elements of a fantasy epic.

Directed by Ava DuVernay, the movie is based on the classic fantasy novel of the same name written by Madeleine L'Engle

Television icon Oprah Winfrey will be portraying one of the main lead roles of the movie, along with Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Zach Galifianakis, Storm Reid and Chris Pine.

DuVernay, who's primarily known for directing the award-winning drama, 'Selma' sat down with Collider to speak on her latest directorial venture. “It’s just a classic story, the kind of legacy of the book, and fans who love it and when you hear about why for such personal reasons,” she said. “It’s a story with a girl at the center—a girl who time travels, travels the universe in search of someone she loves, her father, and in the process she finds herself. Kids fly and to ask Disney, ‘Could these be brown kids?’ and for them to say yes I was like, ‘Let’s do it.’"

She further added, "There are creatures, there are different planets. To think about, ‘Wow, I could design those planets, what those planets look like. I get to do that?’ That stuff is rare air, and so all that stuff immediately I was like, ‘I’m in. I’m so in.’ And it’s fun every single day.”
