Disney has just released a brand-new TV spot for upcoming dark fantasy, A Wrinkle in Time. In this new spot, we get to see a lot more luscious visuals, including that of “the It.” The It seems to be this dark, evil force that is set to spread itself throughout the Earth. It looks like it’s up to Meg and her friends to help put a stop to it.

I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this. While I do like Ava DuVernay as a filmmaker, whenever there’s a nebulous, dark, ominous force, I’m skeptical. Yes, “the It” is pulled from the books, though is referred to as “the Black Thing,” if I’m not mistaken. However, even if it is truly pulled from the book, in film, it feels more like a lazy plot device to have an ominous darkness. Hopefully, they can pull this off.

However, I’m sure there are plenty of folks out there who are still amped to check out the flick. If you’re one of those people, you’re in luck, as advance tickets for the film have already gone on sale!

Below is the official synopsis for A Wrinkle in Time:

“Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, an epic adventure from visionary director Ava DuVernay based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic, takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.”
