The Female Heroes of Star Wars Are Getting Their Own Action Figure Line
From Leia to Rey, the Star Wars films have introduced viewers to some of the most iconic leading ladies in pop culture. Unfortunately, this isn’t always apparent from the merchandising. Now Disney aims to change that with the release of a new line of toys depicting female heroes from the Star Wars universe, Fast Company reports.
The collection ties in to the release of Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, an online series of animated shorts that will tell standalone stories starring women from the franchise. Both Daisy Ridley and Felicity Jones will be reprising their respective roles of Rey and Jyn Erso. Lupita Nyong'o will also return to host the series as her character Maz Kanata.
Fans of Forces of Destiny can take home an 11-inch “adventure figure” (the choice not to label them “dolls” was deliberate) made for the show. The line includes Princess Leia from the original trilogy, Rey from The Force Awakens, Jyn from Rogue One, and Sabine Wren from the animated series Star Wars: Rebels.
