The director and co-writer of Frozen is about to adapt the novel “A Wrinkle in Time” for the big screen. Jennifer Lee won an Oscar for Frozen which is currently the highest grossing animated movie of all time.

“A Wrinkle in Time” was written in 1962 by Madeleine L’Engle and has been an iconic young adult novel. This will be the second time Disney has adapted the novel. It was released as a made for TV movie in 2003 which was vehemently disliked by the novel’s author. I expected it to be bad, and it is,” the author remarked. However, Lee says “A Wrinkle in Time” was one of her favorite novels as a child so hopefully that means she will do it justice.

Currently, there is not director attached. According to Variety, Jim Whitaker and Catherine Hand have signed on to produce. There are no actors being eyed to star at the moment.

There is no anticipated release date at the moment or a date for when production will begin.
