It’s official! Barbie is coming to the big screen and whilst we knew that Margot Robbie has been cast to play the role of the blonde protagonist, we finally have the first look – and it looks, kinda good. During CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Warner Bros. released the first image of Robbie as Barbie (and her pink world), and it’s leaving us wanting more.
Whilst the image doesn’t reveal much, other than the fact that Robbie will be playing a human-proportioned Barbie, she’s giving us a hint that she’s bringing all of her cool accessories with her too – hello ’70s bubblegum pink convertible. Here’s hoping we’ll get to see the Barbie Dream House too (fingers crossed!).
The live-action film is set for release on July 21, 2023, (in the US) and whilst there’s still a long way to go, we can only thank the line-up of actors we know we’ll get to see on the big screen. The cast includes Ryan Gosling as Ken, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Hari Nef, Will Ferrell, and Robbie look-alike Emma Mackey.
