PG | | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
After the disappearance of her scientist father, three peculiar beings send Meg, her brother, and her friend to space in order to find him.
During the Happy Medium's attempt to help Meg focus on her father's location, several different alien landscapes are shown, including one with a herd of furry, tentacled creatures. The Happy Medium exclaims, "Aw, look, it's Aunt Beast!" In the novel, a kindly, blind alien creature tends to a wounded Meg after an encounter with it on Camazotz. Meg affectionately nicknames the alien "Aunt Beast." A four-minute deleted scene from this film shows Aunt Beast (who looks a bit like a giant Wookiee) cradling Meg while Mrs. Who translates Aunt Beast's telepathy.
Do you realize how many events and choices that had to occur since the birth of the universe, leading to the making of you just exactly the way you are?
Meg: I guess I never really thought about that.
Mrs. Which: Maybe now's the time to start thinking about it.
In several scenes, Meg's glasses do not have any lenses in them.
The movie title does not appear until the end credits.
