There have been a lot of animated movies featuring Barbie and her pink sports car and fashionable wardrobe, but no live-action ones. For almost a decade, people had talked about adapting the Mattel classic into a live-action film, but it required Greta Gerwig’s involvement to get the project off the ground.
Margot Robbie’s portrayal of Barbie in a 2023 film might make it one of the year’s most anticipated movies, and we’ve got the scoop on all we know about the film so far.
The Film Barbie Release Date
Warner Bros. announced the release date of the live-action feature on July 21, 2023, accompanying a first peek of Robbie in character at CinemaCon. Although the Barbie movie was announced in 2018, production didn’t actually begin until after Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig wrapped their work on White Noise because of delays caused by the epidemic. Robbie plays the starring role and also serves as one of the film’s producers.
The tweet below confirms the release date of Barbie:
A few months later, Hari Nef (Assassination Nation) posted a photo of the cast and crew on social media. This served as official confirmation that filming had concluded.
Barbie’s July release date pits it against Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, another highly anticipated film boasting a large ensemble cast.
New Trailer Reveals Plot Details for Margot Robbie’s Upcoming Barbie Film
The exact narrative for the next Barbie film has yet to be revealed, the film will follow a doll (Margot Robbie) who is kicked out of Barbie Land for not being flawless enough. The doll leaves her home for a trip to the real world, where she learns that there is more to life than being perfect. New information about the film’s narrative has been revealed in a trailer.
Here is the trailer of the movie:
In the longer video shown at Cinema Con 2023, Barbie’s perfect life in Barbie World comes crashing down when she starts to think about death and when her feet contact with the ground. Weird Then, Barbie leads her on an adventure in which she must decide which world—reality or make-believe—she prefers.
She decides to take a go at the real world, and Ken tags along so he can experience it, too. Unfortunately, the toy boss isn’t too thrilled with their decision. From there, it seems like a fish-out-of-water plot develops as the two have trouble adjusting to life on Earth.
It’s hoped that this film will delve into the criticisms leveled against the Barbie brand throughout the years due to the unattainable standards of perfection they promote. The newest Barbie character posters feature a variety of Barbies and their accomplishments, while Kens are comically devalued. This seems to be a reflection of gender norms.
Emma Mackey’s Barbie is a Supreme Court Justice, while Anya Cruz Kanye has a Nobel Prize in science. The posters for Gosling and Lui feature different versions of the phrase “He’s just Ken” or “He’s another Ken.”

Ryan Gosling Talks About His Role as Ken in the Upcoming ‘Barbie’ Movie
On October 22 of last year, it was reported that Ryan Gosling was in final talks to play Ken, Barbie’s love interest. The actor had a full filming schedule and turned down the role of the male doll at first, but after the epidemic, he found himself with time on his hands and accepted the role.
Gosling’s first photo shoot with his new bleached blonde hair, tanned skin, and classic jean jacket was released by Warner Bros. in July 2022. The scene caused an immediate uproar online, and anticipation for the Gerwig picture skyrocketed.
“I felt like I was seeing myself. I felt seen. I think a lot of Kens will feel seen when they see this. Gotta do it for the Kens. Nobody plays with the Kens.”
I saw myself in the mirror, it seemed. I finally felt understood. Many Kens, I believe, will experience validation from this. Have to pull through for the Kens. No one ever picks on the Kens.
However, when pressed for specifics on how he would play Ken, Gosling remained largely silent.
“That Ken life is even harder than the ‘Gray Man’ life, I think. Ken’s got no money, he’s got no job, he’s got no car, he’s got no house. He’s going through some stuff. I can’t wait for people to see the film. That’s all I can say, otherwise Mattel will come in and box me up.”
