Get ready for a sparkly pink world because the highly-anticipated Barbie movie has just released its latest teaser trailer.
The live-action film stars Margot Robbie (known for Suicide Squad, I, Tonya, and more). It’s directed by Greta Gerwig (who also directed Lady Bird and Little Women).
The teaser for the upcoming movie opens with a parody of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Young girls play with their baby dolls in the desert, but when a huge Barbie doll drops from the sky, the girls smash their old dolls on the ground.
Margot Robbie dons the iconic one-piece striped bathing suit, which was worn by the doll when it first came out in 1959. The teaser also gives us snippets of Barbie’s fun pink dream world.
The Barbie live-action cast also includes Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird), Issa Rae (Insecure), Emma Mackey (Sex Education), Emerald Fennell (The Crown) and Michael Cera (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World).
The movie’s all-star cast may be a clue to a more interesting twist! Kyle Buchanan of the New York Times reported that there will be multiple Barbies and Kens in the film. Think multiverse!
For one, I’m hearing that Ryan Gosling is not the only Ken in the BARBIE film. Simu Liu and Ncuti Gatwa also play Kens— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) May 18, 2022
