Warner Bros has been talking about these productions for some time but very little is known, yet the film adaptation dedicated to the most famous doll of all time will become reality in 2023 and finally we have a first image of the protagonist, that is Margot Robbie, who will play guess what role? Barbie’s obviously!
The last few months have been interspersed with numerous rumors that we have followed marginally given the great confusion generated by this production, but let’s try to make some order. We know the movie Barbie will be released in the summer of 2023 (on 21 July in the United States, for Italy we do not know anything for sure yet) and we also know most of the actors who will participate. Along with Robbie, the cast includes Ryan Gosling as Kenas well as Kate McKinnon, Simu Liu, America Ferrera, Ariana Greenblatt, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Hari Nef, Issa Rae, Michael Cera and finally the stainless Will Ferrell.
In addition, the film also stars lesser known actors such as Kingsley Ben-Adir, Rhea Perlman, Ncuti Gatwa, Emerald Fennell, Sharon Rooney, Scott Evan, Ana Cruz Kayne, Connor Swindells, Ritu Arya and Jamie Demetriou.
At the moment not much is known about the plot of the film but the presence of Gerwig (Lady Bird, Little Women) behind the camera could be a guarantee of a good product. Greta also wrote the script with collaborator Noah Baumbach, while Margot Robbie will also handle production through her house LuckyChap Entertainment.
Finally, we come to the first image revealed at the CinemaCon event currently underway, which shows Margot Robbie for the first time in the role of Barbie wearing a rather classic dress, with the typical colors that have always characterized the Mattel fashion doll. In the background, perhaps it is possible to see some elements of his home, but it’s hard to say with certainty. While waiting for some video, which will still be waiting for a few months, we just have to leave you with the first absolute image of Barbie, what do you think?
