The official Barbie Twitter page announced the “K.C. Undercover” star will be a one-of-a-kind doll.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Barbie is modeling Zendaya’s doll after her stylish Vivienne Westwood look at the 2015 Oscars. EW also reported Zendaya saying in a press release, “I’m excited to be a part of the new direction the Barbie brand is headed, specifically how they are celebrating diversity in the line and encouraging kids to raise their voices”
The superstar will host the Rock n’ Royals Concert Experience on Saturday, Sept. 26, where her doll will be on display.
“When I was little, I didn’t have one that looked like me, so I couldn’t connect with her in that way…But getting to visit the Mattel offices and see Barbie’s vision for the future…it was really cool. I was able to see how they plan to diversify, broadening the horizons and the image of Barbie, and make it more, you know, open. I left the office feeling it was definitely something I wanted to be a part of,” Zendaya told Yahoo Celebrity.

According to the Hollywood reporter Zendaya is currently working a new Animated Film titled “Duck Duck Goose” you can read below for more information!
China’s Original Force Animation has been quietly setting up an animated motion picture unit while getting its first batch of features off the ground, and it is holding its debut event on Wednesday evening during CG conference Siggraph in Los Angeles.
The new unit is based in Culver City and headed by co-presidents Sandra Rabins and Penney Finkelman Cox, who are partners in the venture, along with Original Force founder Harley Zhao. The company seeks to produce at least one CG feature film approximately every 18 months.
During the launch event, the filmmakers revealed concept art and some details from their first projects. Currently in production in the feature unit is Duck Duck Goose, directed by Jenkins from a screenplay by Jenkins and Rob Muir. So far, confirmed voice cast includes Zendaya, Lance Lim, Greg Proops, Diedrich Bader, Rick Overton, Ken Jeong and Jennifer Grey. Finkelman Cox and Rabins are producing the feature along with Viola Chen.
In the story — set in a world that the filmmakers are giving a painterly look — a free-wheeling hero, Peng, rejects the community of his tight-knit flock of geese in an attempt to live life on his own terms. But after he narrowly rescues two young ducklings from a deadly cat named Banzou, Peng agrees to look after them.

How do you think fashion impacts your public persona and how people see you?
I like to think of myself as a strong influence for young people, and I think a big thing about being young is finding out who you are, experimenting, not being afraid to try things, and not being afraid to really embrace who you are and what makes you happy. And I think fashion is a big part of that. You don’t have to care about what people think or let people determine your happiness. Do whatever the heck you want.
Describe your style in three words…
I would say, my style is pretty fearless, definitely unique but still classic.
Do you have any style icons?
Honestly, just people who like to do their own thing. For example, Eryka Badu. People who don’t really follow the rules that are set in fashion and wear whatever the heck they want because that’s their style or that’s what they create for themselves. It’s a very admirable quality.
