A Wrinkle in Time trailer: Ava DuVernay's adaptation looks fantastical and thrilling

Oprah Winfrey as Mrs. Which

During the 2017 American Music Awards, Disney debuted a new trailer for its adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, showing off a girl's fantastic quest across the universe to safe her father.

Seriously, this is an absolutely wonderful-looking trailer, even if it doesn't really tell us that much about the movie other than the obvious: young Meg (Storm Reid) finds out her father (Chris Pine) has been captured by a sinister force, and must journey across space and time to rescue him.

The trailer depicts even more of the odd worlds that Meg Murray (Storm Reid), her younger brother Charles Wallace Murray (Deric McCabe), and school friend Calvin O'Keefe (Levi Miller) enter after Charles Wallance and Meg's father (Chris Pine) mysteriously disappears.

The movie is based off of L'Engle's 1963 novel. This is its first big screen adaptation, though, and if you're curious to know more, here's the official synopsis.

The book is a beloved classic for children, a sweeping, philosophical science fiction epic that follows our discontented, bespectacled teenage heroine Meg across the galaxy and through dimensions to recover her missing father. Joined by Meg's classmate Calvin O'Keefe and guided by the three mysterious astral travelers known as Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs.

Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which, and Mrs. Whatsit stand in a field. It looks gorgeous, too - the movie was filmed in New Zealand - and it's great to see a big studio pic like this with such a diverse cast.

A Wrinkle in Time is scheduled to hit theaters on March 9, 2018.
