"Frozen's" Jennifer Lee is onto her next Disney project, a movie adaptation of one of her favorite childhood books "A Wrinkle in Time."

Just as we're getting ready for next week’s release of The Giver, the movie version of Lois Lowry’s YA best-seller, there’s news of another sci-fi kids classic making it to the big screen.

According to Variety, Jennifer Lee, the Oscar-winning writer and co-director of the animated smash Frozen, has plans to make A Wrinkle in Time, Madeleine L’Engle’s Newbery Award-winning book, into a Disney movie.

One of Lee’s favorite childhood reads, the book follows Meg, her quirky little brother and her friend on a mission through space and time to rescue her scientist father from forces of evil. An action-packed plot line featuring a complex, kick-ass girl heroine? Sounds like a perfect sophomore project for the writer who brought us “Frozen’s” Elsa and Anna.
