Barbie Movie Trailer Has Dropped

Ladybird’s Greta Gerwig is writing the script, together with her long-term partner Noah Baumbach, and if there’s one thing guaranteed with Greta, it’s a female-led film with strong feminist messaging. Oh yes.

“For us, the Barbie movie should definitely have a message of female empowerment, and that you can dream and be anything you want,” Greta asserted back in 2019.

As we already revealed above, there’s plenty of iconic celebs joining the cast, but it’s unclear as to what their actual roles will be.

Who will star in Barbie?

What we do know is that Margot Robbie is starring as Barbie and producing the project via her LuckyChap banner alongside LuckyChap’s Tom Ackerley. Mattel Films’ Robbie Brenner and Paddington producer David Heyman are also producing.

Ryan Gosling will star as her beau, Ken, and Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Hari Nef and Will Ferrell will all feature – though we don’t yet know their characters.

Speaking to Empire magazine, Emma Mackey revealed that all of the Barbies featured in film had a sleepover at the start of filming (sorry but that sounds like the best, most gorgeous sleepover ever) and Mackey was in attendance.

So, reading between the lines, it seems pretty likely she is also playing Barbie in the film.

“Right in the beginning, we had a sleepover for the Barbies, which would involve playing games with Scott Evans and Ncuti Gatwa,” Mackey said. “I don’t play games usually, because I get so competitive and angry. But Scott and I were top of the game. ”

What do we know about the Barbie movie so far from the on-set pictures?

We are still absolutely obsessed with the latest imagery of Margot Robbie dressed as Barbie – rocking a pretty ’90s retro athleisure look as she’s seen in roller skates alongside blonde co-star Ryan Gosling.

Yep, that’s right, Warner Brothers’ are spoiling us with all this imagery ahead of the release of the Barbie film in 2023. The  pics show Robbie and Gosling looking focused (well, they are trying to act on roller skates! ) as they seem to listen to direction from someone on set on LA’s Venice Beach.
