Her name is Storm Reid, and she is the star of Ava DuVernay’s upcoming Disney live-action film, A Wrinkle in Time. Based on the beloved children’s book by Madeleine L’Engle, Reid will play the protagonist, Meg Murry, who embarks on a sci-fi fantasy adventure to find her father, a scientist who’s gone missing. Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon will join Reid and round out the stellar cast. The inclusive and highly-anticipated film, for which DuVernay will make history as the first woman of color to direct a film with a budget of nearly $100 million, won’t hit theaters until sometime in 2017. But for now, you can read up on Storm Reid, a name you won’t soon forget.
