Disney Movie A Wrinkle in Time Kids for Lead Roles

Open Call for Kids and Teens for Lead Roles in Disney Movie in New Orleans, LA

If your child has always dreamed of appearing in a Disney movie, they have the chance to audition for one! Casting directors are now holding an open casting call for the upcoming Disney movie “A Wrinkle in Time”.

About the Movie

Jennifer Lee, who wrote Disney’s “Frozen”, is adapting the award winning sci-fi novel A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle into a screenplay for Disney. The story follows children who travel through time and visit strange worlds in order to find their missing scientist father.According to Nola, the roles “described are presumably for main character Meg Murray, described in L’Engle’s book as having unruly, mouse-brown hair; her younger brother Charles; and their friend Calvin, described in the books as a redhead” so this is as amazing opportunity.

What They Are Looking For

Casting directors are looking to fill the below roles. No prior acting experience is required.

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.”

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.”

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.”

  5. Nashalie Delacruz

    I started to love acting since I was four years old . I used to lie to my cousins and family sometimes, to get there attention that’s called acting. They really fell for it, most of the time. While I’ve been growing up, i used to love watching movies, shows on and on seeing how people react, it’s so interesting. And I still do.One day I would like to be those people behind the screen,acting those interesting parts, and showing off my abilitys. No, I have not been in front of the camera before. Honest.✌ but I’m not scared. I have been in front of people, a lot of people. so that means I can be in front of a camera. Good luck!???

  6. Nashalie Delacruz

    Hi, I’m Nashalie Delacruz. I will be auditioning in Boston on August for the first time. I’ve NEVER audition for a movie or show. I did have experience, but only at school, drama club/acting club. I pray to God everyday to get picked on this, even tho I haven’t auditioned yet. I am 11 years old and auditioning for Meg I’m also 5’6 in height. I am a mixed race girl. I LOVE to act. I k there are a lot of people out there like a million or more in different states and countries auditioning for this. But I k I have to try my best and believe in myself because some people will give up because they didn’t got picked and they think that they didn’t pick him or her because “she doesn’t act well”. That’s wrong, every one should believe in your self because everyone one has a talent for a reason. I can’t wait to see u soon when I audition.?❤️?

  8. Bryn McDaniel

    My name is Bryn McDaniel. I am thirteen-years-old and will be turning fourteen on September 4th. I have brunette hair that, in length, people have considered it “long” and “medium.” My hair is straight. I am extremely pale and I weigh UNDER 100 pounds. My eyes are hazel and I am growing out my bangs. I have been in multiple plays including Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and The Crucible. In my latest play, I played a ten-year-old girl named Betty Parris who screamed and whined a LOT. I usually play antogonists, misunderstood children and loud and bold characters. My latest characters have been Prince Charming, Trixie (a brat), Dixie (a brat), Louise (a young newspaper girl), Peggy Sue (a young girl who speaks her opinion, but find sour she can speak her opinion without fighting) and so on. I can play ages 8-15. I would love to play a character in A Wrinkle in Time! Whether I could be a lead character or an extra, I would be pleased with any role I can receive! Thanks!
