    According to Variety, the genius writer and co-director of Frozen has chosen her next project, and it sounds perfect for kids and adults alike.

    Jennifer Lee will soon begin writing the big-screen adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's book, A Wrinkle in Time.

    Disney executives were reportedly impressed with Lee's take on the project, which emphasizes a strong female-driven narrative. Anyone else reminded of Frozen's Anna and Elsa? 

    Lee holds the title of the first female to direct a Disney animated feature. The film went on to become an Oscar-winner and earned a whopping $1.3 billion at the box office.

    A director and release date for the upcoming project has yet to be announced.
