Set to open early next year, Ava DuVernay’s (Selma) adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s 1963 award-winning classic fantasy novel A Wrinkle in Time will star (among others) Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling, and we have a first look at their characters.

The images were published this morning via Entertainment Weekly, and thanks to the new pics, we can check out a bearded Chris Pine (Star Trek, Wonder Woman) as Dr. Alex Murry, the physicist father of the film’s teenaged heroine, played by Storm Reid.

Written by Oscar winner Jennifer Lee (Frozen), the upcoming Disney movie follows the story of Meg Murry (Reid), “a young girl traumatized by the disappearance of her scientist father years before. She finds herself on an interplanetary journey with a schoolmate and her younger brother to find her father. They are aided by a trio of supernatural beings, Mrs. Whatsit (Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (Kaling) and Mrs. Which (Winfrey).”

And you can see what those millions-of-years-old celestial beings will look like (note to self: find out which brand of moisturizer they're using) in the gallery below, so dig in! A Wrinkle in Time will open on March 9, 2018. Are you looking forward to the fantasy movie?
