Actor Chris Pine gushed over Oprah Winfrey after working with her on Disney’s space fantasy film A Wrinkle In Time.

“I loved working with Oprah,” the 36-year-old actor told Entertainment Tonight at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California on Saturday, July 15.

Oprah Winfrey

In the film, Winfrey plays the wise and mysterious Mrs. Which, who helps a biracial girl travel through time and space to rescue her father.

Calling the 63-year-old media mogul “a force of nature”, Pine said, “There’s a lot to learn from a woman who has made this kind of impact, culturally and in the business, and you see why.”

A Wrinkle In Time also stars Reese Witherspoon, below right, Mindy Kaling, below left, and 14-year-old Storm Reid as Meg.

A Wrinkle In Time was adapted from a classic children’s novel by Madeleine L’Engle, and features a script written by Frozen‘s Jennifer Lee. It was directed by Selma‘s Ava DuVernay.

Winfrey admitted she had never read the book before director DuVernay approached her about the role, adding, “But when Ava mentioned it to me and told me it was a character who is one of the wisest women in the universe and is an angelic celestial being who is going to get to wear amazing costumes and get to work with Reese and Mindy… who wouldn’t say yes to that?”

A Wrinkle In Time opens everywhere on March 9, 2018. Watch the movie trailer below.

    I loved the book and Oprah looks great!

  • JV

    It’s too early in the morning for that Oprah costume. I can’t even register what I’m looking at. Is it hilarious? Am I scared of it? Were eagle-dragons harmed in the making of this costume, should I call PETA? So many questions

  • Coy little wink

    Oprah is on another wavelength…I bet her vibe is overwhelmingly awesome ?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    YASSSSS Ava!! Get that Disney money!!!

  • Kanyade

    Love Oprah’s glasses.

    Love Chris Pine.

    I never read the book, either, though I know it is a classic. I might give it a read before the film comes out.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Love Oprah. Hopefully I’ll get to meet her myself someday.

    Idk why that pic reminds me of Chris Tucker in 5th Element

  • MookieFly

    Ive never read the book but I might have because the trailer look good

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    YES Ava!!!! I’m here for positive “brown girl” protagonist. Thank you Ava for straying away from the typical blueprint: little black child, in the crack and crime infested ghetto backdrop, possibly fatherless and drug addicted mother, being single handedly saved by their liberal and “allegedly progressive” teacher

  • Kanyade
  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Did we peep how the Monique story has died down and Oprah did not open her mouth about it publicly?

  • Tammie Reed

    I hope Disney sends me to see this, looks interesting for sure.

  • SuperScooper1
  • Kanyade

  • Rayne

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I thought I read that book when I was in the 4th grade, but none of that looks familiar. But then again, I have read hundreds of books since then. Either way, I’m here for these 2018 movies starring black people in something other than service roles.

    Chris isn’t aging well.
    Actually it looks as if he may have the monster. ( but you didn’t hear that from me)

  • Kanyade

    He’s had bad skin since he was a teenager, so I read on another site.

  • Kanyade

    Happy Birthday to you!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Monique has no clout or power to actually impact Oprah’s life and that is why Oprah just let Monique flap her gums until she ran out of gas.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I am not talking about his skin, but thanks for the information.

  • Shira Harding-James

    I love Mindy ??

  • Shira Harding-James

    Lol

  • Shira Harding-James

    Happy Birthday….blessings and love!

  • Kanyade

    Oh. Okay. You’re talking about the overall (aging wise). I felt the skin attributed to that. And yes, I too see shadows of a monster.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Happy Bday

  • hottlanta

    Can’t wait for her to do Central Park 5. My popcorn is ready.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Oprah is getting skinny!!!!

  • hottlanta

    Monique didn’t run outta gas. Her husband excuse her daddy is sleeping. When he wake up he will be in bytchmode again. People who have money don’t waste time arguing with people with no money.

  • hottlanta

    Anybody see the movie Girl Trip this weekend? I am going to see it.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yeah Monique is going to end up broke and alone after her ‘daddy’ finishes destroying her career.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Ava is a busy lady!!

  • Faithz

    Oprah loves her work, love how they made her up for her part.
    Say Oprah, all I ask is that if you could let me have $1500 dollars
    to get my Pinto repaired it stopped on me yesterday .

  • Coy little wink

    Paid her in total dust ?

  • hottlanta

    I saw a clip of the young lady who had a husband like Monique that was murdered last week and her homecoming was OMG. They gave her what she deserved.

  • Faithz

    Oprah Monique said she would clean your horse
    stables for you, and I will help her if you will let me.

  • Faithz

    Ain’t that the dang truth.

  • Faithz

    Enjoy your day.

  • Faithz

    So on point with that., truth.

  • Guess Who

    Oprah looking goofy as fuk on that first pic.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Are you talking about the young lady from Lake Worth Florida who went from being homeless to earning over six figures?
    Lake Worth is not far from where I live and yes the story was sad.
