Craig T. Nelson,
Following the discovery of a new form of space travel as well as Meg's father's disappearance, she, her brother, and her friend must join three magical beings - Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which - to travel across the universe to rescue him from a terrible evil.
During the Happy Medium's attempt to help Meg focus on her father's location, several different alien landscapes are shown, including one with a herd of furry, tentacled creatures. The Happy Medium exclaims, "Aw, look, it's Aunt Beast!" In the novel, a kindly, blind alien creature tends to a wounded Meg after an encounter with it on Camazotz. Meg affectionately nicknames the alien "Aunt Beast." A four-minute deleted scene from this film shows Aunt Beast (who looks a bit like a giant Wookiee) cradling Meg while Mrs. Who translates Aunt Beast's telepathy. See more »

I think I'm going to go home!
Yeah! There's some things I need to say to my dad. Maybe now I can finally say them. It's funny how it took a trip around the universe to get me there.

I ignored the bad reviews and went anyway. Disappointing is probably an understatement. This movie is a disaster. Not only is the acting incredibly awful, especially from some otherwise accomplished cast members, but the original storyline was all but abandoned. I read the book several times, and even I was confused what was going on in this film. There was no explanation for any of the concepts, character development was nonexistent, special effects were plentiful but meaningless. The most fascinating parts of the book were eliminated, or only presented so quickly that it was difficult to understand why they were happening and how they related to the story. This movie could have been SO great - there was incredible potential here, and Disney and the director literally wasted it all.
