Needless to say, Twitter was HYPED
During the Disney 2017 D23 Expo, DuVernay— along with Reid, Pine, Winfrey and Witherspoon— dropped the trailer on Saturday to standing ovation, THR noted.
“I saw myself in it, and I saw so many different kinds of people in it,” DuVernay told crowd. “A family story wrapped in an epic adventure where you see worlds you’ve never seen before.”
She also said that she wanted to put together a diverse cast “that looked like you, that looked like the real world.”
DuVernay is one busy lady with this film and her upcoming Central Park Five miniseries on Netflix.
