Oprah Winfrey is "so happy" with her Wrinkle in Time Barbie doll.

The 64-year-old media mogul and actress said in an Instagram video Saturday that she loves the "action figure" Mattel made of her character, Mrs. Which.

"This makes me so happy! My own action figure doll from A Wrinkle in Time. This is Mrs. Which for A Wrinkle in Time, coming to a theater near you March 9," she said before singing, "I love it, I love it, I love it, I love it!"

A Wrinkle in Time is based on the Madeleine L'Engle novel of the same name. Ava DuVernay, who directed the forthcoming Disney film adaptation, reacted to Winfrey's video on Twitter.

"I love that she calls the doll an 'action figure.' That's how warriors think. Big!" she wrote.

Mattel also created dolls of Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling's characters, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who. The dolls retail for $50 each, and are available to pre-order ahead of their Feb. 23 release.

"We are thrilled to introduce the powerful #Disney @WrinkleInTime woman warriors, Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit!" the company wrote in an Instagram post Thursday.

A Wrinkle in Time co-stars Storm Reid, Zach Galifianakis and Chris Pine, and opens in theaters March 9.
