After more than five decades of being appreciated as a classic of children's literature, and 15 years after a TV movie version failed to impress, A Wrinkle in Time has finally received the big screen treatment, with director Ava DuVernay's adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's book now playing in theaters.

The Compton native's relatively late to the movie game and has already got some pretty impressive films under her belt like Selma, 13, and more recently, A Wrinkle In Time.

And the Black Panther director did not hold back: "Ava DuVernay is someone who makes the impossible look easy". I met her in 2013, but shes one of those people who you feel like youve always known, ? the director wrote in a letter for ESPN.

DuVernay's production company worked to finance and distribute independent movies created by women and people of color.

Given that she already has an established relationship with Disney through A Wrinkle in Time, and gave advice to J.J. Abrams on Star Wars: The Force Awakens with regards to the climactic showdown between Rey and Kylo Ren, the filmmaker would seem to be a ideal fit for the galaxy far, far away.

Ryan Coogler sees DuVernay as a "pioneer" and says that she is "inclusion, equity and representation".

Coogler went on to describe DuVernay, who at one point was in talks to helm Black Panther, as the "past, present and future", and joked: "Sometimes I forget she is human".

Like the original novel, A Wrinkle in Time follows the young Meg Murry as she journeys across space with her brother, Charles, and new friend, Calvin, to save her father, and along the way, the trio are aided by Mrs. I almost lost my father, and it nearly broke me in half. According to Deadline, A Wrinkle in Time is projected to end Friday somewhere between $12 million and $14 million.

As the 45-year-old opened her new movie A Wrinkle in Time in the US on Friday (09Mar18), the Black Panther director penned a sweet letter describing the filmmaker as one of his heroes.
