The film stars Margot Robbie as Barbie, Ryan Gosling as Ken, America Ferrera, Simu Liu as another Ken, Kate McKinnon, Ariana Greenblatt, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Issa Rae as another Barbie, Michael Cera, Rhea Perlman, Will Ferrell as the CEO of a toy company, Ncuti Gatwa as another Ken, Emerald Fennell, Hari Nef as another Barbie, Sharon Rooney, and Scott Evans.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie told “Something like Barbie where the IP, the name itself, people immediately have an idea of, ‘Oh, Margot is playing Barbie. I know what that is,’ but our goal is to be like, ‘Whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something totally different — the thing you didn’t know you wanted,’” Robbie said. “Now, can we truly honor the IP and the fan base and also surprise people? Because if we can do all that and provoke a thoughtful conversation, then we’re really firing on all cylinders.”
Barbie will hit theaters on July 21, 2023.
