Margot Robbie on Her Role as Barbie — Hitting Theatres Next July

You can imagine 2023 as still far away, but for Barbie fans, expectations are already high regarding the coming year. 

A release date has already been given for the live-action adventure, with Margot Robbie playing the iconic doll. 

Warner Bros. announced this much yesterday, Tuesday, April 26, during the presentation at Las Vegas’ CinemaCon.

Other members of the cast include notable faces like Ryan Gosling, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Hari Nef and Will Ferrell. 

In an interview, Robbie had noted that taking on the role of Barbie comes with a lot of baggage as well as nostalgic connections. With those also come exciting ways to tackle her role. 

She noted that when people hear “Barbie,” they easily imagine what the movie is going to be. But then, when they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, the narrative changes almost immediately. 

Barbie is currently in production. And while fans can’t hope to see what the producers have managed to put together at they moment, they wouldn’t have to wait long either. The Mattel flick is hitting theaters on July 21, 2023.

Y’all ready? Then stay tuned for yet another Mattel original if you please. Barbie is on her way with some sauce.
