Star Wars Barbie Collection Is an Homage to A New Hope


Mattel has announced a new Star Wars Barbie collection which is an homage to Star Wars: A New Hope. The collection, inspired by the film’s original concept art, re-imagines the iconic characters through a distinctive Barbie high-fashion filter.

Available on November 18, 2019, the Darth Vader, R2-D2 and Prince Leia dolls all include a stand and certificate of authenticity.

Once a heroic Jedi Knight, Darth Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force, became a Sith Lord, and led the Empire’s eradication of the Jedi Order. This collectible Star Wars x Barbie doll (buy here) captures Darth Vader’s Sith armor silhouette in a head-to-toe shiny-black ensemble. Metallic details at her collar and waist, dark glasses and an emblematic black cape finish the look.

A resourceful astromech droid, skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot’s assistant, R2-D2 showed great bravery in rescuing his masters and their friends from many perils. The Star Wars R2-D2 x Barbie doll (buy here) captures the lovable droid’s look in a geometric ensemble with a dome skirt, bomber jacket and thigh-high boots over silvery tights. A vibrant blue ponytail and “radar eye” detail complete the look.

Princess Leia Organa was one of the Rebel Alliance greatest leaders, fearless on the battlefield and dedicated to ending the tyranny of the empire. This collectible Star Wars x Barbie doll (buy here) captures Princess Leia’s iconic look in an elegant white gown with dramatic, floor-length sleeves. Details include a silvery peplum belt, cuff jewelry and an up-do inspired by her signature bun hairstyle.
