I can’t even tell you how excited I am about the reboot of A Wrinkle in Time!

A Wrinkle in Time Cast

A Wrinkle in Time has a truly outstanding cast filled with some of the most talented actors in Hollywood. Let’s take a peek at a few!

1. Oprah Winfrey- Mrs. Which

If you’ve owned a television at any point in the last 20 years, you know who Oprah is! Along with her popular daytime show, she’s also appeared in over two dozen shows and movies. Your kids will recognize her as the voice of Eudora in “The Princess and the Frog,” Gussy the Female Goose from “Charlotte’s Web,” and Deborah in “The Star.”


2. Reese Witherspoon- Mrs. Whatsit

 A long-time favorite of mine for her work in movies like “Man in the Moon” and “Sweet Home Alabama,” Witherspoon isn’t new to the family movie category. She played Susan Murphy / Ginormica in “Monsters vs. Aliens” and Rosita in “Sing.”


3. Mindy Kaling- Mrs. Who

While Mindy Kaling is best know for her role as Kelly Kapoor in the comedy series “The Office,” she’s no stranger to children’s movies, either. She played the voice of Disgust in “Inside Out” and Taffyta Muttonfudge in “Wreck-It Ralph.”


4. Gugu Mbatha-Raw- Kate Murry

Fans of the Doctor Who series will recognize Gugu as Tish Jones (2007), but your kids know her better as Plumette from the live-action Disney hit “Beauty and the Beast.” Gugu is also pretty well known in the theater world. She’s played Juliet (Romeo & Juliet) at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre in 2005 and Ophelia (from Hamlet, opposite Jude Law) at London’s West End and Broadway in 2009.

5. Michael Pena- Red

Micheal Pena’s had some pretty diverse roles over the years, going from Armando Renta in the cop show “The Shield” to Grubber in “My Little Pony.” LEGO Ninjago fans will recognize him as the voice of Kai.

6. Storm Reid- Meg Murry

For such a young actress, Storm has definitely played some BIG roles! She caught her break when she was cast to play Emily in “12 Years a Slave.” Your kids might recognize her as Avery from The Thundermans.

7. Zach Galifianakis- the Happy Medium

Although he’s best known for his roles in adult comedy movies, Zach isn’t exactly brand-new to family film roles. Like Pena, he voiced one of the main characters in a LEGO movie. He played Joker in The LEGO Batman Movie.

8. Chris Pine- Alex Murry

Fans of the JJ Abrams Star Trek franchise will recognize Pine instantly. He’s pretty unforgettable in the role of Captain Kirk. Your kids, on the other hand, know him as the voice of Jack Frost in “Rise of the Guardians.”

9. Levi Miller- Calvin O’Keefe

At just 16 years old, Levi Miller doesn’t have a long acting resume quite yet, but your kids might recognize him as Peter in the 2015 movie “Pan.” The young Australian is definitely one to watch!


10. Rowan Blanchard- Veronica

Young Rowan has only performed in a few roles, yet already has a huge following. Fans of “Girl Meets World” will instantly recognize her. She plays Riley Matthews, daughter to Cory and Topanga.

With such an outstanding cast and amazing special effects, A Wrinkle in Time is definitely the must-see family movie of the year! I’ll be heading out to theaters as soon as it opens!
