New LEAF set to make it's Hollywood debut

  • Nissan announce partnership with Disney on the upcoming movie 'A Wrinkle in Time'
  • ALL-new LEAF will be making its big screen debut
  • A Lucky winner will receive an all-new LEAF and $100,000!

Based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Madeleine L'Engle, A Wrinkle in time is set for a release on the 8th March featuring stars such as Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon and Oprah. The film will feature the all-new LEAF following a collaboration between Nissan US and Disney that was announced last week.

“This epic adventure which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space depicts a world where intergalactic travel is possible,” said Jeremy Tucker, vice president, Marketing Communications & Media, Nissan North America. “It’s fitting that the all-new Nissan LEAF, equipped with Nissan’s latest advanced technologies, makes an appearance in the film. Nissan is proud to support “A Wrinkle in Time” as well as its cast and director who are working to imagine tomorrow, today.”

State of the art, futuristic technologies play a big part in the upcoming film, so it was only fitting that the film makers would choose the worlds leader of electric vehicle sales to feature in the film. Since its introduction in 2017, the LEAF has sold over 300,000 vehicles and has now become the halo car to feature the new Intelligent Mobility tech.

Nissan is also working with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and the film’s director, Ava DuVernay, to promote the “Searching for the Next Visionary Filmmaker.” The contest seeks to inspire innovative directors – especially female filmmakers – to step up and share their voice. To enter, aspiring directors ages 18 and up must submit a two-minute video showcasing their journey as a filmmaker. Submissions will be judged on their unique storytelling voice, their creativity and originality, and their depiction of one of the most powerful lines of dialogue in the film, “Be a Warrior.”

One lucky winner will receive $100,000 from Nissan to create their own film, a trip to Hollywood to attend the world premiere of “A Wrinkle in Time” and meet with DuVernay, plus an all-new Nissan LEAF.
