Life is plastic. It’s fantastic!

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the trailer for theΒ Barbie movie and it looks simply iconic!

From the minds of Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, this vibrant film captures a world full of Barbies and Kens, portrayed by a star-studded cast like you wouldn’t believe! Featuring Margot Robbie as the titular Barbie and Ryan Gosling as her Ken, Issa Rae plays Barbie, Alexandra plays Barbie, Ritu Arya plays Barbie…everyone’s Barbie! Emma Mackey, Robbie’s doppelgΓ€nger, also plays another Barbie. Oh, and Dua Lipa plays Barbie, too!

The variation of Kens are carried by Simu Liu, Scott Evans, Ncuti Gatwa and Kingsley Ben-Adir. But there’s only one Allan, and he’s Michael Cera! And playing a toy company CEO is Will Ferrell.

The trailer features the characters in doll-like state, with Barbie’s feet never changing shape as she walks on her toes after sliding off her heels — exactly the way dolls do. You can also spot the bright pink Barbie convertible from your childhood as Barbie drives — with her handsΒ off the wheel — towards Real World. Real World? Hmm.

 

While fans have begun piecing their theories together, let’s hold our horses and wait out the next three months! Having directed phenomenal films such asΒ Little WomenΒ andΒ Lady Bird,Β Gerwig is about to take us on the silliest, brightest,Β best ride of our lives!
