If you have always dreamed of being in a Disney movie, you don’t want to miss out on this casting call! Casting directors are getting ready to hold open call auditions for a Disney adaptation based off Madeleine L’Engle’s award winning sci-fi novel called “A Wrinkle in Time”. The director of Selma is Ava DuVernay, is set to direct the movie. Kids and teens do not need to have any experience to audition for the Disney film. The story is about children who travel through time and visit strange worlds in order to find their missing scientist father.
They are holding auditions to find actors for the following three roles. The casting team is looking for a 14-year-old mixed-race girl of African-American and Caucasian descent. “This girl is questioning her life, her place in the world and her family,” a casting description reads. “While troubled, she possesses untapped strength and intelligence which carries her through her search for truth.” The next role they are auditioning for is for a 5-year-old mixed-race boy of African-American and Caucasian descent. “This boy is EXTREMELY intelligent and articulate. He is strong and loving and hypersensitive.” The final role they are looking to fill is for a 16-year-old boy who is an ethnic minority. “He is a handsome, fit, caring young man who becomes a friend to the above two kids.”
