'A Wrinkle in Time' cast surprises moviegoers with a live reenactment

Last Night Now

On The Late Late Show with James Corden, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and newcomer Storm Reid surprised a movie theater audience by re-creating A Wrinkle in Time live.

Corden provided the narration for the shortened version of the feature film, while Winfrey, Witherspoon, Kaling, and Reid each attempted to keep up with his directions, even the eccentric ones. "You what what I had to do on Colbert? Nothing. Just sit there, talk about the movie," said Winfrey. Unfortunately, James was basically the only person who thought the idea of reenacting the film live was brilliant. He also thought that he was the best person on the crew to give a pep talk to Witherspoon, when she joked that she was feeling nervous. Because, obviously, it's not Oprah.

In the end, the audience seemed to really love their 4D experience, and James was totally overjoyed. He even went as far as to say, "You know, the movie was good. But this? This was better. I think if Ava Duvernay was here today, she would say, 'Wow. I'm glad I made the film so this could happen." Sadly, the cast did not share the same thoughts, as Winfrey concluded, "You know I opened a school in Africa to give education to thousands of young girls who otherwise wouldn't have access to school? But this? This has been my proudest moment." And when Corden popped in asking, "Really?" Oprah quickly, and simply, added, "No."
