If we had to pick a celebrity to guide us through time and space, Oprah Winfrey would obviously be at the very top of our list.

Wrinkle also stars Chris Pine as Meg and Charles's missing father Mr. Murry, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as their mother Kate Murry. "To do things the same way because that's the way they've always been done, is something I can't abide". There aren't any other black women who have been invited to imagine what other planets in the universe might look and feel like. Her adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time is headed our way next year, and Entertainment Weekly has the first images from the movie.

Which says, her Oprah-ness is really helpful".
