Disney has made another adaptation of the classic children's book "A Wrinkle in Time" but will it please the long-time fans of the story?

In this video episode of the podcast, Andy Farnsworth, Tysen Webb and long-time "Wrinkle" fan and KSL Digital Content specialist Becky Bruce have a deep-dive discussion WITH SPOILERS about the new movie, based on the 1962 book written by Madeline L'Engle which still has many loyal fans, 50+ years later.

They talk about expectations fans of the book may have going into the movie, break down many of the changes made by Academy Award-nominated director Ava Duvernay from the written page to the big screen--including missing characters and locations, as well as tweaks to the plot and alterations to a few characters' personalities. They even take a quick look Disney's 2003 direct-to-DVD movie version of "A Wrinkle in Time" that starred Alfre Woodard.

Disney's "A Wrinkle in Time" (2018) stars Storm Reid, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Deric McCabe, Levi Miller, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Pena & Oprah Winfrey.
