Disney has set Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time for release on April 6, 2018.

DuVernay made the announcement on her Twitter account with the film’s star, newcomer Storm Reid, at the end of a two-minute video posted Monday. That video featured the cast and crew of more than 100 of A Wrinkle in Time as part of its very own take on the Mannequin Challenge.

The time-travel tale also stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Galifianakis, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Mindy Kaling. Jennifer Lee, who wrote and co-directed Frozen with Chris Buck, is penning the adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s book for Disney. Shooting started last week in Los Angeles.

The California Film Commission selected A Wrinkle in Time in August for an $18 million tax credit as part of the state’s incentive program to keep films in California. It said that A Wrinkle in Time will bring $85 million in qualified spending to California with nearly 400 cast and crew members employed, and $44 million will be paid in wages to below-the-line workers.

DuVernay, the director of Selma, came on to A Wrinkle in Time in February. The story follows a group of children as they travel through time and visit strange worlds in order to find their missing father. Reid plays the oldest daughter, Meg Murray, in the movie.
