The full-length film will be released as planned in July 2023.
American film studio Warner Bros. first introduced Margot Robbie in the image of "Barbie". Images of the 31-year-old Australian actress as the film's lead character Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach were shared on the company's official Twitter account.
Robbie brings the iconic Mattel doll to life in a pink shot as he takes the driver's seat in the iconic convertible, dressed in traditional Barbie-style "doll" clothing. In a day, the post gained 80 thousand likes, 20 thousand reposts and almost 1000 comments.
At Warner Bros. indicated that the release of the upcoming film, as planned, will take place in July 2023. The film will only be released in theaters. Together with Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu, Alexandra Shipp, Michael Cera, Ariana Greenblatt, America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Will Ferrell and Issa Rae are removed in the film.
Greta Gerwig is known for the projects Little Women, Lady Brad and Jackie, and the script for Barbie was written by the producer of Ocean's 8. The script for the upcoming film is still being kept under wraps. Initially, they wanted to “revive” Barbie for a feature film back in 2014. Mattel partnered with the Sony film company, and Amy Schumer and Anne Hathaway were considered for the role of the doll. In 2019, a contract was signed with Warner Bros.
