The idea of ​​carrying Barbie and his “cute” world in a live action movie with flesh and blood characters could be as ridiculous as unappetizingbut the project on the famous dolls of the Mattel company, which is also involved as a producer, gradually acquired a new, spectacular dimension, after the confirmation of what would be its director and its cast starring Australian Margot Robbie and Canadian Ryan Gosling playing her eternal boyfriend Ken.

As for the direction, the one chosen was the Californian Greta Gerwigmuse of independent cinema at the hands of her partner, Noah Baumbach (co-author of the script with Gerwig) in titles such as Frances Haand assuming in her role as director the adaptation of little women and another acclaimed independent film such as Lady Birdand all this advancing in principle that the film was not going to be exactly conventional.

And to the aforementioned live actionalready a reality, it has a little less than two months left for it to be seen on the big screens, it will be on july 21 distributed by Warner Bros, also ranking as one of the most anticipated releases of the summer. There we will have the opportunity to see its protagonist leaving the comfort zone of Barbieland to enter the real world, and also numerous other Kens and Barbies represented in the trades with which the doll has been traded over the years.

So it will have its added point with the interventions of Nicola Coughlan, Emma Mackey, Ritu Arya, Alexandra Shipp, Kate McKinnon, Hari Nef, Issa Rae, Sharon Rooney and even the Anglo-Albanian singer and model Dua Lipa in the pink universe of Mattel. And to actors like John Cena, Simu Liu, Ncuti Gatwa, Scott Evans either Kingsley Ben Adir doing the same in their roles as other Ken.

However, one of the surprises about the original cast has been given by Margot Robbie herself, also producer of the film through his company LuckyChap Entertainment, in an interview for Vogue magazine revealing that for years they really didn’t know who could star in it. But then her first choice, both hers and Gerwig’s, was for Gal Gadot to play the lead Barbie. “Gal Gadot is Barbie energy”says the actress. “Because Gal Gadot is so unbelievably beautiful, but you don’t hate her for being so beautiful, because she’s so genuinely sincere and so passionately kind that she’s almost ditzy. It’s like right before she was ditzy.”.

Finally, Robbie herself clarifies that having the Israeli actress was not possible because at that time it was not availablecaught up in too many projects, especially with Wonder Woman from the DC universe.

And in regards to what Barbie is creating expectation attests, for example, a survey from last April carried out by fandangothe North American website dedicated to the pre-sale of movie tickets, in which it was placed, according to voters, in seventh place among the most anticipated summer premieres.
