The writer of Disney’s adaptation of “A Wrinkle in Time” says she cut Bible references, including Jesus, from the film because she wanted to be more “inclusive.”

Screenwriter Jennifer Lee (“Frozen”) was tapped to transform the children’s book into a big budget film, but in the process eliminated the biblical references that devout Episcopalian L’Engle included in her original work.

In an interview with Uproxx last month, Lee explained why she omitted the Christian elements that are a significant part of L’Engle’s book.
