Barbie is a franchise that is popular all over the world by selling dolls that resemble humans. Its popularity makes the doll has had many films or animated series that are no less iconic. In fact, in 2019, it was revealed that Warner Bros. plans to work on a Barbie live action film by hooking Margot Robbie as the main character.
Not long ago, Warner Bros. Pictures finally released a first look at Margot Robbie’s appearance as Barbie in her live action film later. In the first look with shades of pink, we can see Robbie with his blonde hair in a convertible which is also pink. Unfortunately, we still have to be patient a bit, because this film will only be released in theaters on July 21, 2023.
Besides Robbie, this live action also involves a number of other well-known Hollywood actors. One of them is Ryan Gosling who will play the character of Ken, who is usually told as Barbie’s lover in the animated version. Then, there are also other actors in roles that have not been revealed, such as Will Ferrell, Kate McKinnon, Michael Cera, to Simu Liu who recently became Shang-Chi.
For your information, this live action project was previously held by Sony Pictures. The figure of the actress who became a candidate for the role of the beautiful doll was not Robbie at first, but Amy Schumer and was also replaced by Anne Hathaway. Unfortunately, this Sony project stalled so Warner Bros. took over with Greta Gerwig as director
