A Wrinkle in Time where filmed
A Wrinkle in Time is based in a sci-fi adventure novel written in 1963 by Madeleine L'Engle, revolving around space-time interdimensional travel and the classic struggle of good and evil. The story follows a young girl trying to save his father, a government astrophysicist, who disappeared after working on a mysterious project, the Tesseract.

The book has been brought to the screen before, but never at the scale of a major motion picture adaptation like this one. Ava DuVernay (Selma, Middle of Nowhere) has become the first black woman to direct a blockbuster film with a budget over $100 million.

A Wrinkle in Time was filmed in California and New Zealand. The production was housed at Santa Clarita Studios in Los Angeles County. Location manager Alison Taylor received an award for her job in this project. Here are the spoiler-free filming locations for this new fantasy tale from Disney:
