Oprah is playing a tour guide, hopping from planet to planet, in Disney’s upcoming fantasy film A Wrinkle in Time, starring Storm Reid, who plays a teenager named Meg who goes on a cosmic adventure to find her missing scientist father with the help of three celestial beings, as Entertainment Weekly reports.

Those beings are Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey).

Dr. Ava DuVernay on the novel in which the film is based on: “I saw so much beauty in it, but also so much meaning,” she said to EW. “She’s a very radical thinker and she embedded her sense of what society should and could be in this piece, and a lot of it I agree with. And through that, the story of this girl saving the world and being out there in the universe slaying the darkness, it also says a lot about slaying our own dragons.”
