Here are 5 Reasons I Liked Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time” #WrinkleInTime

I received product/compensation in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

A Wrinkle in Time

Released: June 5, 2018

The stunning story of an ordinary girl’s extraordinary adventure through time and space offers exhilarating entertainment and positive messages for the whole family—encouraging self-confidence, inclusion and pushing imagination to the next level.

Families who bring home “A Wrinkle in Time” will go behind the scenes to meet the talented craftspersons, actors and filmmakers who brought to life every spectacular detail of this triumphant tale. Bonus material includes an extended featurette providing inside access to the A-list cast and crew; insightful audio commentary from director Ava DuVernay and team; deleted scenes; bloopers; and two music videos, including “I Believe” performed by GRAMMY®-nominated music mogul DJ Khaled and featuring GRAMMY®-nominated singer-songwriter Demi Lovato.

More than 50 years after Madeleine L’Engle’s young adult novel “A Wrinkle in Time” was awarded the prestigious Newbery Medal, the big-screen retelling of this timeless classic takes audiences on a transformative journey, exquisitely illustrated through jaw-dropping visual effects, a stirring musical score and diverse, star-studded cast. Three celestial guides, Mrs. Which (two-time Academy Award® nominee Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Whatsit (Oscar®, Golden Globe® and Emmy® winner Reese Witherspoon) and Mrs. Who (Emmy nominee Mindy Kaling), come to Earth to share their wisdom and love with struggling eighth-grader Meg Murry (Storm Reid) as she journeys across dimensions with classmate Calvin (Levi Miller) and younger brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) in search of her father (Chris Pine), a world-renowned physicist who mysteriously disappeared four years ago.

As fantastical as the film’s premise and imagery may seem, “A Wrinkle in Time” centers on a universal human need that feels particularly relevant and relatable today. “This is a story about belonging,” says DuVernay. “It’s about a girl who just doesn’t feel strong in her mind, body and spirit. But through this epic journey, she finds her strength and learns that the center of the universe starts inside her. It’s about Meg feeling like she belongs in the universe and has a mighty part to play… as do we all.”

Here are 5 Reasons I Liked A Wrinkle in Time

1. It shows that parents can be selfish and make mistakes too. I think too often movies portray parents without flaws and this movie shows the dad as putting his own needs/wants before his family – which he admits was wrong in the end.

2. It’s weird or should I say imagination. So I don’t remember the book A Wrinkle in Time so I can’t compare it to it, but the movie is weird and I love weird things. I found myself watching every inch of the screen so I didn’t miss anything and I was mesmerized by the costumes.

3. It teaches kids to believe in themselves and doesn’t try to be someone else. I tell my kids this every day but I think they related more to Meg who wanted to be someone else but realizes she doesn’t need to be.

4. It reminds kids to think outside of the box. The answer is not always right in front of us which is something hard to teach kids!

5. Finally, it shows that kids and adults all have something they don’t like about themselves or some kind of issue. There is a girl in the movie who is worried about her weight, another about her appearance, another about his grades and so forth. Then it shows adults who are jealous, full of anger and selfish. I like that shows that we are all human and basically that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side!
