A new trailer for the upcoming movie adaption of A Wrinkle in Time debuted during a break from the action at the 2017 AMAs, and it's just as compelling as the award show itself. The movie, based on the book by Madeleine L'Engle, stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, and Zach Galifianakis, and takes you on an adventure through time.

In the official trailer, Meg (Storm Reid) is a girl whose father (Pine) has disappeared in an attempt to "reach for the stars." Her dad has found a way to bend the dimensions of time and space, or "wrinkle" them, and somehow he got lost in the process.
