"Barbarella" tells the story of a female mercenary who roams across the universe in a distant future, undertaking missions that require her physical fearlessness, ingenuity and sensuality. In travels that span galaxies known and unknown, "Barbarella" will challenge tradition, startle the senses and take audiences on an epic adventure of discovery and wonder. "Barbarella" made her debut in 1962 in a French graphic magazine written and illustrated by Jean-Claude Forest, and her adventures have been published around the world. The first film version, starring Jane Fonda produced by Dino De Laurentiis, was released in 1968.
