Oprah Winfrey got the role on the spot without auditioning. She was texting director Ava DuVernay one day and DuVernay mentioned that she was developing a new "A Wrinkle in Time adaption" and asked if she could work with her, and Oprah said "no problem". See more »

I think I'm going to go home!
Yeah! There's some things I need to say to my dad. Maybe now I can finally say them. It's funny how it took a trip around the universe to get me there.

I ignored the bad reviews and went anyway. Disappointing is probably an understatement. This movie is a disaster. Not only is the acting incredibly awful, especially from some otherwise accomplished cast members, but the original storyline was all but abandoned. I read the book several times, and even I was confused what was going on in this film. There was no explanation for any of the concepts, character development was nonexistent, special effects were plentiful but meaningless. The most fascinating parts of the book were eliminated, or only presented so quickly that it was difficult to understand why they were happening and how they related to the story. This movie could have been SO great - there was incredible potential here, and Disney and the director literally wasted it all.
