Variety is reporting that Jennifer Lee who wrote and co-directed Frozen is adapting the novel Wrinkle in Time for Disney. The long developing live-action project is based on the 1962 children's novel written by Madeleine L’Engle. The novel is the first in a series of four, so the film has franchise potential.

No director has yet to be attached to the project.

While she works on this project, Lee will remain part of Walt Disney Animation Studios' Story Trust and continue guiding and developing the work at the animation studios.
