Director extraordinaire Ava DuVernay dropped yet another tease from her highly anticipated girl-power romp for the 1-8, A Wrinkle in Time, which stars 14-year-old Storm Reid, who made her film debut in 12 Years a Slave.

Each and every time we see a cut of this film filled with all the girls of color (and Chris Pine), our swooning commences.

And, yes, we got some more via DuVernay’s New Year’s Eve Twitter post:

“I’ve always loved New Year’s Eve. A day laced with both memories and possibilities. Time and space fold to bring us into a new dimension of sorts. A real wrinkle in time occurs. Wishing beauty and bravery to all in your new year. Tesser well. xo”

“Be a warrior” indeed.

A Wrinkle in Time drops March 9.
