Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time is a classic in children’s literature, and for many readers it’s the first time they’re exposed to sci-fi/fantasy books. Impressed by the success of Disney’s Rogue One, Nissan agreed to work with Lucasfilm and Disney on a new adaption of A Wrinkle in Time featuring Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, and Reese Witherspoon. At Cronic Nissan, we couldn’t be more excited for the Nissan-Disney partnership.
According to The News Wheel, the world premiere of A Wrinkle in Time will be powered by the 2018 Nissan LEAF, and this intelligent electric vehicle will be featured on the red carpet as well.
A Wrinkle in Time is a thrilling story written in 1962, and it features supernatural beings that travel through time using “tesseracts,” or what we might now call wormholes, to meet a thirteen-year-old girl. There’s space and time travel, alien worlds, and evil brain monsters. This space-age film pairs well with the futuristic LEAF, one reason Nissan was eager to work with Disney.
Nissan commented on the new partnership, stating, “As a propeller of change, the All-New Nissan LEAF® is inspiring innovation by bringing you the technology of tomorrow, today. In celebration of Black History Month, and in honor of the upcoming release of Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, Nissan and Walt Disney Studios are inspiring creatives, visionaries and dreamers with our Tomorrow to Today class. Together, we want to empower ingenuity and encourage innovation to help you move forward in your career. Whatever your passion is, we’ll help you get there.”
The latest LEAF comes with intelligent features like ProPILOT Assist to improve safety and to make driving easier, as this system lets you set a following distance and monitors traffic. There’s also a new e-Pedal that rethinks your experience behind the wheel.
