Here at EarlyGame we're usually caught up in the world of Marvel and DC, but all those superheroes combined couldn't hope to carry the same cultural weight as Barbie. This was the toy, for generations. And while it certainly isn't as popular a brand these days (with so many parents opting for less gender-specific toys) Barbie remains iconic. That's why the news of a live-action Barbie film is so exciting. And honestly, now that we can see them both in costume, who could possibly play the role of Ken and Barbie better than Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie?

What Is The Barbie Movie?

Barbie is a rom-com coming next summer that's set in the world of the toy doll. We know almost nothing about the plot so far, but rumors suggest the film will take a self-reflective, ironic look at the world of Barbie. So you can almost certainly expect them to make some joke about Margot Robbie not actually being able to move properly, because, as we all tire of hearing, Barbie's proportions couldn't actually exist on a real woman. But as we said, we don't have any specifics yet.

When Will Barbie Be Released?

Barbie will be released on July 21, 2023. Yeah, sorry, it isn't coming out that soon...but the time will go in no time, we promise. And before you know it you'll be sat in the cinema ready to indulge in what looks like a great summer romp.

That's all we know so far about Barbie. What do you think? Another soulless cash-grab or actually something more? We have high-hopes, but we've been stung before...
