Disney knows how to make a magical movie, with something for the kids and also something for adults – don’t tell me you haven’t noticed all of the ‘adult’ jokes in Disney’s movies! The film is based on a book which was a childhood favourite for many.
The film, some of which was filmed in New Zealand’s South Island, is a science-fiction fantasy adventure – aka a wonderful Disney film for the whole family.
The film stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Storm Reid, Zach Galifianakis, Chris Pine and Deric McCabe. It tells the tale of Meg Murry (Reid), who is struggling with issues of self worth and is desperately trying to fit in. She is the daughter of two world-renowned physicists and she is intelligent and uniquely gifted – but she is yet to realise that herself.
When her father goes missing, her mother is left heartbroken. Along with her celestial guides – Mrs. Whatsit (Witherspoon),Mrs. Who (Kaling) and Mrs. Which (Winfrey) – they set off, travelling via a wrinkling of time and space to search for her father.
Watch the trailer below.
The film opens nationwide March 29th, 2018.
While filming, many of the stars fell in love with New Zealand. And we don’t blame them!
