Three stars of A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time is Disney’s new motion picture based on Madeleine L’Engle’s 1962 novel of the same name. This is the story of a girl who lost her scientist father and is now set to find him. However, to do this, she has to go to outer space guided by three guardian angels, collectively known as “the Mrs.”

The three guardian angels are played by three stars.

Oprah Winfrey – Mrs. Which

Oprah Winfrey plays Mrs. Which, the leader of “the Mrs.” that lead Meg on her quest to finding her father.  She is the wisest of the group and provides advice to the adventurers, Meg, Calvin, and Charles Wallace, on their quest.

Oprah is known for being one of the most influential and powerful women of our time.  She has produced and played in other award-winning films such as The Color Purple and Selma.  Her 25-year talk show, the Oprah Winfrey Show, is what catapulted Oprah to fame.

Reese Witherspoon – Mrs. Whatsit

Along with Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit helps in the guidance of the children to find Dr. Murray (Chris Pine).  For this role, Witherspoon rocks red hair for a stunning performance.

America’s Sweetheart is known for her empowering role as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde.  She has also starred in other more light-hearted films such as Sweet Home Alabama and Just Like Heaven.

Mindy Kaling – Mrs. Who

Mindy Kaling plays the other celestial being who guides the children on their quest. Kaling is mostly known for her role in The Office.  She is also known for writing, producing, and acting for nine years on her comedy, The Mindy Show.

This is not the first time Kaling stars in a Disney film. She lent her voice in the animated movie Inside Out.  She will be returning to the big screen in the already anticipated film, Ocean’s Eight.
