(MOVIE) Oprah, Reese & Mindy: Warriors of Light in “A Wrinkle in Time” (Opens Mar 14)
Exceptional actresses Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling star as the three mystical Mrs.’s in Walt Disney Pictures’ epic adventure A Wrinkle in Time (in Philippine cinemas March 14).
Says Winfrey, “Mrs. Which has been around for millennia. She is an angelic cosmic being who has complete empathy and connection to all humans and is one with the universe. She understands that love and light is all that ma ers and journeys throughout the universe to spread that message.”
For the role of Mrs. Whatsit, the second ethereal guide who has journeyed to Earth, the ﬁlmmakers were looking to cast someone charming, delightful and funny—all words that describe Reese Witherspoon. The actor and producer, whose credits range from “Legally Blonde” and “Walk the Line” to “Big Little Lies” and “Wild,” was a huge fan of the book as a child and was thrilled when oﬀ ered the role of the youthful and free-spirited Mrs. Whatsit.
In describing her character, a star who gave up her existence in order to ﬁght the darkness, Witherspoon says, “Mrs. Whatsit is the youngest of the three Mrs.’s…she’s only 2 billion years old. This is her ﬁrst mission as a guide traveling the universe ﬁghting for light and goodness in people and humanity, but she is new to Earth and not used to being in a human form and is very curious.”
A Wrinkle in Time is an epic adventure that takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light, good versus evil and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.
