The trailer for Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time is here, and by the looks of it, the adaptation of the 1963 children’s classic by Madeleine L’Englewe is going to be a big one.

“What if we are here for a reason,” says actor Chris Pine, who plays a father and scientist who disappears under mysterious circumstances. “What if we are a part of something truly divine?”

The trailer then shows Pine trapped in a box on some distant planet — then gives us frenzied glimpses of the gorgeously-filmed and no-doubt heart-pounding trials his daughter, Storm (played by Twelve Years a Slave’s Meg Murray), must endure to find him.

The film, which reportedly cost more than $100 million to make, stars Oprah Winfrey (Mrs. Which), Reese Witherspoon (Mrs. Whatsit), Zach Galifianakis (The Happy Medium) and Mindy Kaling (Mrs. Who). It is being directed by Ava DuVerney, who directed the 2014 film, Selma; and is being screenwritten by Jennifer Lee, who did the screenplay for Disney’s Frozen.

The movie is slated for a March 9, 2018 release — and we can’t wait.
