The A Wrinkle In Time Stars Now Have Their Own Barbies
The trio from Ava DuVernay’s upcoming film A Wrinkle in Time have officially entered the Barbie universe–and the whole cast is pretty excited to see this dream come to fruition.
Reese Witherspoon’s character Mrs. Whatsit, Oprah Winfrey’s Mrs. Which, and Mindy Kaling’s Mrs. Who have been transformed into a set of collectible dolls ahead of the film’s release. Ms. DuVernay herself tweeted about the exciting news, in disbelief over the fact that she never had any barbies like this as a child. It’s a very special moment.
The dolls aren’t available for purchase just yet, but are set to retail for $50 each.
DuVernay herself was previously transformed into a Barbie a couple years back as a part of Mattel’s “Shero” campaign, which honored real-life women and their accomplishments in entertainment. The doll was supposed to be a one-off to auction for charity, but due to high demand, the company made it available for purchase, with proceeds benefitting Color of Change and Witness.org.
