EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT BARBIE
At Misirli, we are very excited to see the new Barbie film coming out later this year. We are proud license holders for Barbie, allowing us to create designs for this incredible enterprise. As they are within our licencing portfolio we thought we would tell you everything we know about the new film:
WHO IS DIRECTING BARBIE?
Greta Gerwig, the writer Oscar-nominated director of Lady Bird and 2019’s celebrated Little Women remake, signed on to write the Barbie movie in 2019 along with her partner, Marriage Story writer-director Noah Baumbach. In July of last year, however, Variety confirmed that Gerwig would also be directing the film.
WHO’S IN IT?
Margot Robbie, best known for her role in Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood and for playing Harley Quinn in three DC superhero movies, signed on to play the title role way back in July 2019. Robbie is also producing the film through her production company LuckyChap Entertainment, with Mattel Films and HeyDay Films co-producing.
For a while, Robbie was the only star confirmed for the movie, but what would Barbie be without Ken? In October 2021, Ryan Gosling was announced as the live-action Ken opposite Robbie. Gosling has previously starred in films like Blade Runner 2049 and Drive, he’s also done films like La La Land and Crazy Stupid Love.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
There is not much known about the plot however Robbie did state in an interview in 2021 that “People generally hear Barbie and think, I know what that movie is going to be, and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ‘Oh, well, maybe I don’t…’”
WHEN DOES BARBIE COME OUT?
Barbie is set for a theatrical release next summer, when it will premiere on July 21st, 2023.
