There’s no one who doesn’t know, but let’s say it again: there’s a feature-length Barbie movie coming out. Yes, the blonde Barbie is coming to theaters doing all the jobs that little girls love to play. And, this time not in the form of animation. We’d like to share with you what we know about the movie, which has a lot of famous names in the cast. Let’s look at the details together.
Who controls Barbie?
Expectations are high for a film about such an iconic character as Barbie. In this case, the gaze switches to the director of the film. Greta Gerwig, writer and Oscar-nominated director of Little Women, and Noah Baumbach, writer and director of Marriage Story, sat down to write the screenplay for Barbie in 2019. However, it is not known who will direct the film. Last July, Variety magazine confirmed that Gerwig would direct the film.
Now this is where things get a little more interesting because Greta Gerwig has never been in a Barbie movie before. Gerwig, who is also an actor, has mostly starred in comedy-drama films so far. Although at first we didn’t know what to think about choosing this director, Barbie’s trailers have saved us a lot of worries. Either way, the movie is sure to be interesting. Barbie’s release date is July 20th, until then we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
Despite the fact that there is still a little time before the release of the Barbie movie, the film does not leave the agenda. As a result, the film’s cast is also curious.
Now we come to a very funny topic. Barbie is played by Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star Margot Robbie. We think she’s a really great choice because Margot Robbie really does look like a living doll. In addition, the beautiful actress has proven how well she fits different roles with the character of Harley Quinn.
For a while, Robbie was the only person who was supposed to appear in the film. But what would Barbie be without Ken? Of course not! So who is Ken? Ryan Gosling, whom we know from the films “La La Land” and “Blade Runner 2049”! To be honest, we didn’t really like Gosling when he was first announced as Ken. But we can’t think of anyone else right now!
You may be surprised when you first see the title, but famous singer Dua Lipa is in the movie! Do you even know what role? Barbie! “How?” We hear you speak. Then it would be great if we made this statement now. Almost all the female characters in the film are “Barbies” and all the male characters are “Kens”. In fact, when you think of toys, it makes a lot of sense. After all, Barbie had no family and friends for a long time. All the dolls were just Ken and Barbie.
Dua Lipa plays the mermaid Barbie in the film.
Issa Rae, who we know from the TV series Insecure, plays President Barbie. As we have already said, almost all female actors play Barbie, but their professions are different. Just like with toys.
Simu Liu, the main character in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Links, plays Ken. Judging by the trailer, this Ken is not very good.
Here is another name that surprised us! Because the talented Sex Education actress Emma McKay looks just like Margot Robbie!
Will Ferrell, the popular face of comedy films, we think plays the main villain.
Again, a sex ed actor, we have no idea what role Connor Swindells played in the movie. The poster simply says, “It’s a trainee or something.” We’ll wait and see.
What is the theme of the film?
While living in Barbieland, Barbie is kicked out of her house on the grounds that she cannot live up to the standards here. He then decides to try his luck in the real world. But let’s be honest, we don’t know exactly what the movie will tell. We just know there will be a lot of Barbies and Kens in the movie. When watching the trailer for the Barbie movie, there is a scene where Barbie travels to the real world from Barbie Country, but we’re not entirely sure about that either. We’ll wait and see. However, we would like to say that our expectations for a film about this 60-year-old iconic character are quite high. If you want to watch the trailer for the Barbie movie 👇
