There's Still One Big Secret That A Wrinkle In Time's Trailer Didn't Reveal

Whether you read the book or are simply anxiously awaiting the upcoming film adaptation, A Wrinkle In Time is definitely on your radar.

With the release of the first trailer, we are seriously experiencing excitement overload. And yet it left us wanting more.

Director Ava Duvernay brought her A-game to this YA adaptation, which is filled with all-star actors, amazing costuming and an eerie tone.

We could go on for days about all the reasons the trailer has us brimming with anticipation, but there's one big secret that the first trailer didn't reveal.

A post shared by Ava DuVernay (@directher) on

Who will Girl Meets World star Rowan Blanchard play in the film?

A quick IMDb search of the film will confirm our longtime knowledge that this young actress will appear in the movie, but next to her credit is a blank space where her character name should be.

Watching the trailer doesn't give us any more clues as she's absent from the one minute and fifty-second video.

A little sleuthing tells us that Rowan probably has a relatively small part. Director Ava mentioned in a tweet that the actress joined set for "a few days" which could mean she's only in a scene or two of the film.

Judging by her wardrobe in this pic, we don't expect to catch her on the haunting planet of Camazotz bouncing a ball with robotic and Twilight Zone-y children. For that matter, we don't really expect to see Rowan on any of the unusual planets. Perhaps a friend from home? Maybe she plays a new character not present in the book.

We'll just have to wait until the spring to see. Le sigh.


While we seriously can't wait for this movie, we definitely want to read the book before it hits theaters next year. Click HERE for 8 other must-read books to binge before their movie counterparts come out.
