But never has it been imagined as quite so colorful and fantastical. The story has a great message—when faced with darkness in the world: Be the Light; Be a warrior.

This is the tale of an adventure taken by 11-year-old Meg Murry, played by Storm Reid (who was Emily in 12 Years a Slave). She, her little brother, Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), and their mother (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, of the movie Belle) are still
