What Is Barbie Release Date? Who Plays Ken Role In Barbie?

Barbie Release Date: So far, Barbie’s trademark pink convertible and chic wardrobe have only been shown in animated films. The concept of adapting the Mattel classic into a live-action film had been kicked about for more than a decade, but it wasn’t until Greta Gerwig signed on that the project really got a flight. The forthcoming film Barbie, starring Margot Robbie, is sure to be one of 2023’s most talked-about movies, and we’ve got the scoop on all we know so far.

Barbie Release Date

Even though the movie won’t be released until 2019, a date has been set. Warner Bros. announced the release date of the live-action film on July 21, 2023, along with a first look at Robbie as the title character, during CinemaCon.

When the news about the Barbie movie first broke in 2018, Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig were in the middle of filming White Noise. It wasn’t until they finished that they were able to begin production on the film. Robbie not only plays the major part but also serves as one of the film’s producers.

Trailer Of Barbie

On December 15, 2022, before select showings of Avatar: The Way of Water, the first teaser trailer for Barbie was released to the public after months of anticipation. Warner Bros. followed up the following day by posting the trailer online, which caused a minor internet outage.

At the beginning of the trailer, Richard Strauss’s “Also Sprach Zarathustra” plays as a witty tribute to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. A group of girls in tattered clothes play with dolls as Helen Mirren narrates, bemoaning the fact that, up until that one terrible day, females had only ever had access to baby dolls. A huge Margot Robbie, dressed as Barbie in a black-and-white striped bikini, towers over the little girls and winks at them as they watch the clip.

A hysterical outburst ensues, during which the girls shatter their baby dolls; one of the dolls is tossed into the air, where it spins wildly before the scene cuts to the title card. Robbie’s Barbie looks out over Barbieland as the music changes to something more upbeat; we get our first glimpse of Ryan Gosling’s Ken in action; and we get a glimpse of Issa Rae applauding while wearing a ribbon that reads “President.”

A few months after principal photography completed, Hari Nef posted a photo of the cast on social media. This signifies that post-production on the film has begun and that it will be released in theatres later this year. If Barbie is released in July, it will have to compete with Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, another highly anticipated picture with a large ensemble cast.

Plotting Of Barbie

Since so little is known about the plot of this live-action adaptation, it is often the subject of speculation. From what we’ve heard from the actors attached to the movie, we can only assume that this will be a whole new take on the iconic Barbie.

Although the Barbie name may appear restrictive when it comes to plot development, Margot Robbie and her crew obviously welcomed the challenge, as seen by her statement: While promoting his role in the Christmas musical comedy Spirited, Will Ferrell, a member of Barbie’s vast and outstanding cast, dropped some fascinating tidbits about the picture.

It was announced on October 22 of last year that Ryan Gosling was in final discussions to play Ken, Barbie’s love interest. The actor had previously turned down the role of the male doll because his calendar was already full, but as a result of the epidemic, he now has time to perform the part.

Gosling’s first photo shoot with his new bleached blonde hair, tanned complexion, and classic denim jacket was released by Warner Bros. in July 2022. The scene caused an immediate uproar online, and anticipation for Gerwig’s film only grew. Gosling expressed his delight and satisfaction at landing the famous part of Ken in The Gray Man on his press tour.

None of the aforementioned actors have acknowledged their participation, although Liu did add in the same interview with the Independent that having his body waxed for Barbie was one of the most excruciating things he had to go through in production.

Song Of Barbie

While it would seem like the obvious response that “yes,” Aqua’s signature song won’t be included in Barbie. Manager Ulrich Mller-Jrgensen confirmed to Variety that the song will not be included on the album.

At the time of the release of the Danish hit, Mattel was worried about the song’s message and filed two lawsuits against the group for using the Mattel brand name for commercial advantage.  Although, the California District Court of the United States dismissed both cases.
