The novel offers a glimpse into the battles between light and darkness, and goodness and evil, as the young characters mature into adolescents on their journey. L'Engle modeled the Murry family on her own. Scholar Bernice E. Cullinan noted that L'Engle created characters who "share common joy with a mixed fantasy and science fiction setting. The book has inspired two film adaptations, both by Disney : a television film directed by John Kent Harrison ; and a theatrical film directed by Ava DuVernay.
Skip navigation! Story from Movies. Warning: Contains crucial plot elements for A Wrinkle in Time. The trailer for Ava Duvernay's upcoming adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time is a colorful, two-and-a-half-minute long blast. And it's also not giving any of the movie's secrets away. Walking away from the trailer, you'd think the movie was about a trio of mystical women from the Capital in The Hunger Games , a trio of kids with a better understanding of physics than you'll ever have, and a flying space manta ray. That impression would not be entirely false.
