The plot of the film has been kept under wraps, but we do know that it will be a contemporary story that explores themes of identity and femininity. In a statement, Gerwig said, “I’m so thrilled to take on Barbie. It’s a great opportunity to put some positivity into the world and to see that kind of story on the big screen.”

One thing that’s clear is that this won’t be the Barbie movie you remember from your childhood. In recent years, Barbie has undergone a transformation to become more inclusive and diverse, with dolls representing a range of skin tones, body shapes, and hair textures. The film is likely to reflect this new direction and offer a fresh take on the character.

“Barbie” is a Heyday Films, LuckyChap Entertainment, and Mattel production, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. The film is set to hit theaters on July 21, 2023, with an international release beginning on July 19, 2023.

So mark your calendars, and let’s immerse ourselves in the ultimate Barbie experience!
