Camazotz is the planet that IT is located on. The capital city of Camazotz is where CENTRAL Central Intelligence is located. Meg, Charles, and Calvin traveled to Camazotz to save Charles and Meg's father. While they were there, IT took control of Charles' brain.

Movie Appearance Edit

In the Wrinkle In Time movie, the appearance of Camazotz is very fluid and always changing.

Suburban Community Edit

The first appearance of Camazotz directly under IT's control is in The Suburban Community. There is one road leading to a cul-de-sac. The houses on the road are all identical with what appears to be a very strict, autonomous schedule. The kids, when Meg Murry, Charles Murry, and Calvin O'Keefe arrive, appear to be bouncing a ball at the same exact time at the same exact spot at each identical house. Charles Wallace appears to be hurt by the autonomous noise of the balls bouncing off the driveway. Soon, however, the kids stop exactly at the same time once their mothers all file out at the same time saying "Honey, It's time for dinner!" at the same exact time. The community then folds away as Meg, Charles, and Calvin walk away from the cul-de-sac.

Beach Edit

The beach then appears after the community folds away. The people there are a lot less autonomous than the suburban community. There, they meet the Man with Red Eyes who invites them to eat on a beach towel.

Central Central Command Edit

After The man with red eyes takes Charles Wallace away, and Meg chases after him, they go into a room that appears to be in a spherical shape, and is bright white.

The Prison Edit

After Meg pulls out the glasses and sees the hidden shapes in Central Central Command, she walks into a gateway and is pulled into a room colored Pink and Orange where Meg's father is being held.

The Hallway Edit

After Meg saves her father and walks out into central central command, Charles Wallace becomes infuriated when Meg tries to save him. He collapses some of the hidden features, and yanks them away from central central command into a dark hallway lined with blue strips stating that IT wanted to see her and her friends.


In the novel A Wrinkle In Time, the planet Camazotz behaves as a mundane world might, apart from the pervasive influence of IT.


Meg, Calvin, and Charles Wallace arrive on the planet on a hill outside the town. When they go to the town, they find that it is highly regimented. They see children playing: the boys bouncing balls, the girls skipping ropes. All are doing so in exactly the same rhythm. All of the houses look very similar, down to appearing to have exactly the same number of flowers in front of each.
