Later this year, SELMA Director Ava DuVernay will be back behind the camera to direct Disney’s big-screen adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s 1963 science fiction novel, A WRINKLE IN TIME, working from a script by FROZEN‘s Jennifer Lee.  After the casting of Oprah Winfrey in the role of Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon in the role of Mrs. Whatsit and Mindy Kaling in the role of Mrs. Who, one big question loomed as to who would play the role of “Meg,” the young hero at the center of the tale? Today it was revealed to be Storm Reid.

Storm ReidSaid director Ava DuVernay,“After an extensive search that spanned multiple dimensions, we’re overjoyed to welcome Storm Reid to WRINKLE IN TIME as our beloved “Meg.” Storm is a tremendously talented young actress who embodies the hopes, dreams and spirit of a character much loved by audiences worldwide for generations. I can’t wait to work with Storm as we chronicle Meg’s epic quest, alongside Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who. Tesser well!”

Reid’s first theatrical film role was in the Academy Award-winning 12 YEARS A SLAVE where she played Emily, and she has also appeared in AMERICAN GIRL: LEA TO THE RESCUE and SLEIGHT, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Most recently, she shot a starring role in Judy Greer’s directorial debut A HAPPENING OF MONUMENTAL PROPROTIONS (2017), alongside Allison Janney, Common and Bradley Whitford.
