During tonight's American Music Awards, Disney released a new trailer for their upcoming adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time.

The teaser showcases the story's vibrant world-building (including the book's iconic ball-bouncing scene, which still gives me nightmares), and introduces viewers to the witches: Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), as they help Meg Murray (played by Storm Reid) on her journey through time and space to save her father.

In addition to giving us a preview of Kaling, Witherspoon, and Oprah, the clip also explains the story's central science fiction tenet (and the meaning behind its name): the tesseract.

"It turns out a straight line is not the shortest distance between two points, not if you use a fifth dimension," says Meg's mom, describing her husband's research.

"So you fall through space," questions her friend Calvin.

"More like you wrinkle it," responds Meg Murry.
