Over the years, Mattel, the maker of Barbie, has been criticized for their doll’s unrealistic body proportions and sizes. Since, they have rolled out Barbies with all shapes, sizes, skin tones and hair color — yes, they created a redhead Barbie! Everyone is different in their own unique way, and Barbie now recognizes its dolls should be the same way.
This morning, Mattel released a photo of three new dolls they are adding to their Barbie collection: the three main characters from the Ava DuVernay-directed film A Wrinkle in Time.
The Barbies feature the characters played by Mindy Kaling, Oprah and Reese Witherspoon.
When Disney makes Barbies of your movie’s characters and you just want to stare at them all day in disbelief because you loved Barbies as a girl but never had any like these. #WrinkleinTime pic.twitter.com/7PzQsiNoyG

Disney’s new adaption of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time is set to hit theaters on March 9th. The latest trailer (below) focuses on a young girl, Meg Murry, who is having trouble in school after her father suddenly vanishes. She, along with her brother and friend, embark on a mission across the dimensions of time and space to find her missing father, guided by three celestial beings.
By the way, doesn’t Resse Witherspoon look gorgeous with vibrant red locks?!
We can hardly wait to see the new movie.. and excited for redheads to be represented by Barbie yet again. Rock it like a Redhead!
