As part of its marketing campaign, the movie has recently released new trailers, images, and interviews with the cast. And of course, no Barbie movie would be complete without a line of dolls to accompany it. In an adorable new promo, the cast of Barbie reacts to their plastic counterparts, bringing a heartwarming touch to the upcoming film.
The Promo: The minute-long promo showcases Margot Robbie, Issa Rae, Simu Liu, and America Ferrera’s reactions to their respective Barbie dolls. Robbie, who plays the main Barbie character, takes the spotlight as her various Barbie dolls provide a glimpse into the different outfits she wears in the film.
Barbie is known for her numerous costume changes, and Robbie’s doll can be seen sporting her “perfect day dress,” a bright pink cowgirl outfit, and a silver dancing attire. However, Robbie is not the only Barbie in town, as the movie features countless versions of the classic doll, including Rae, who portrays President Barbie.
The same applies to Ken, with Gosling and Liu playing the two main versions of the character. The promo captures the cast’s genuine delight as they witness their Barbie dolls, creating an endearing and heartwarming experience for viewers.
The Storyline: The Barbie movie immerses audiences into “Barbie Land,” where Robbie’s portrayal of the doll is grappling with a crisis as the magic of her world slowly fades. Barbie and Ken, played by Gosling, embark on a journey to the real world in a quest to rediscover the true meaning of life.
Initially, the concept of a Barbie movie may have seemed unconventional, but given the brand’s unparalleled recognition in the toy industry with over 60 years of history, the film has generated significant buzz, especially with the involvement of Gerwig and Robbie. The excitement only grew as the movie assembled an exceptionally talented ensemble cast, including Will Ferrell, Emma Mackey, Michael Cera, Alexandra Shipp, Kate McKinnon, Emerald Fennell, and Dua Lipa, who portrays Mermaid Barbie.
