These 'Wrinkle in Time' Barbies go on sale next month. And they look incredible.

The internet nearly broke when the trailer for "A Wrinkle in Time" went viral last summer.

And with good reason, too.

The cast list reads like a block on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Storm Reid, Chris Pine, and Zach Galifianakis all starring in the film, which is based off the 1962 sci-fi novel of the same name.

And on January 24, 2018, the film gave fans another reason to celebrate: "A Wrinkle in Time" got the Barbie treatment.

Dolls made in the likes of Mrs. Who (Kaling), Mrs. Which (Winfrey), and Mrs. Whatsit (Witherspoon), seen respectively below, will go on sale beginning February 23, 2018.

Obviously, they look marvelous.

Mrs. Whatsit? Perfection.

Mrs. Who? YES.

And Mrs. Which? Nailed it.

Fans are loving the dolls.

Let's face it: The Barbie brand has been a bit ... problematic, historically speaking.

But Mattel has been trying to change that.

In recent years, the brand has launched new dolls that are more body positive and inclusive. It made waves in 2015 with its clever, progressive ad campaign encouraging girls to dream big, and the company has also made efforts to shatter gender norms that suggest that Barbies are for girls only.

Mattel's bold moves haven't been lost on Ava DuVernay, who directed "A Wrinkle in Time." She was loving the new looks modeled after the film's characters too, claiming in a tweet that while she had Barbies growing up, she's "never had any like these."

More of this, please, Mattel!

Two years ago, a tweet featuring the invoice for a fixed boiler went viral because the customer, a 91-year-old woman with leukemia, received the services for free.

"No charge for this lady under any circumstances," the invoice read. "We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible."

The repair was done by James Anderson, 52, a father-of-five from Burnley, England. "James is an absolute star, it was overwhelming to see that it cost nothing," the woman's daughter told CNN.

I live in a family with various food intolerances. Thankfully, none of them are super serious, but we are familiar with the challenges of finding alternatives to certain foods, constantly checking labels, and asking restaurants about their ingredients.

In our family, if someone accidentally eats something they shouldn't, it's mainly a bit of inconvenient discomfort. For those with truly life-threatening food allergies, the stakes are much higher.

I can't imagine the ongoing stress of deadly allergy, especially for parents trying to keep their little ones safe.

Recent tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton have sparked a lot of conversation and action on the state level over the issue of gun control. But none may be as encouraging as the most recent one, in which 145 CEOs signed a letter urging the U.S. Senate to take action at their level.
