Footage for the anticipated film "A Wrinkle in Time" captured much of the attention at Disney's D23 Expo over the weekend. The film due March 2018 features an all star cast which includes Reese Witherspoon, Storm Reid and Oprah Winfrey.

The clip was presented by film director Ava DuVernay, who told audiences she saw herself in the project, which is based on Madeleine L'Engle's 1963 novel, noted The LA Times.

"The thing that attracted me to the project is that I saw myself in it, and I saw so many different kinds of people in it," she said. "It's a family story wrapped in an epic adventure, where you see worlds you've never seen before."

This was DuVernay's first appearance at the D23 Expo and she said Disney was the ideal place for "A Wrinkle in Time."

"I found my tribe — people who love movies as much as I do.”

Speaking about the project, Winfrey said she could not turn down an opportunity to play the role of Mrs. Which.

"When Ava mentioned it to me and told me it was a character who is one of the wisest women in the universe — and is an angelic, celestial being who is going to get to wear amazing costumes and get to work with Reese and Mindy [Kaling] as part of the Mrs. team — who wouldn’t say yes to that?" she told Times.

Disney described "A Wrinkle in Time" as a film which "takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and ultimately, the triumph of love."

The plot follows Meg (Reid) as she embarks upon a quest to find her parents, Dr. Alex Murry (Chris Pine) and Dr. Kate Murry (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) somewhere in the universe, reported Slashfilm.

Along the way, Meg encounters many memorable characters and a fair share of adventure.
