Originally produced as a two-part television miniseries, but re-edited and broadcast in a three hour time slot. See more »
(at around 9 mins) At the beginning of the movie when Meg and the schoolboys get into a semi-fight, the black boy is behind Meg when they're mocking her and then appears next to her in the next shot when the fight starts without time for him to have moved. See more »
True, L'Engle's book was far better. The movie itself wasn't so bad. I was quite pleased to see that Mrs. Whatsit was portrayed as the winged creature in a very satisfactory way. It was almost as though they pulled the image from my mind! Alfre Woodard was excellent as Mrs. Which, but then she's excellent in EVERYTHING. I was disappointed by parts, such as the Man with red eyes and Aunt Beast... and the end was slightly unsatisfactory as well. While I was a little upset by the changes, I would be pleased to see the other three of the Time Quartet (A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters) be put to film. Maybe it would be better if New Line did it instead of Disney, though...
