Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling will be the famous “Barbie” couple in the upcoming movie.  It will be Greta Gerwig’s new film, a ‘live action’ of the doll so recognizable from our childhood.

Start shooting the movie was not an easy task. For almost eight years there were several changes in terms of the film’s direction. The process of finding the protagonist was also very extensive-period, until it was finally determined that Greta Gerwig was going to be the director and Margot Robbie would play the role of Barbie.

However, Barbie is giving a lot to talk about it. Nowadays, the movie is blooming back a fashion trend: The ‘Barbiecore’ trend.

Here is everything you need to know about the movie and this trend. Here we go!

Plot of Barbie’s movie.

Regarding the story, you probably think that this production will tell the traditional story of the Mattel doll, but the truth is that the plot will focus on breaking down the prejudices surrounding the Barbie character. The film is set in “Barbieland”, a beautiful and colorful society with Kens and Barbies. The Ken starring Ryan Gosling, being a “complete dweeb”, becomes obsessed with Barbie, but shares absolutely nothing with Barbie’s negative thinking towards beauty standards, sexism, etc.

Eventually, Ken and Barbie leave “Barbieland” heading out into the real world where Mattel’s CEO (Will Ferrell) goes after the duo to bring them back to Barbieland.

Gerwig, 38, wrote the film’s screenplay with her co-worker and partner, Noah Baumbach.

“Right in the beginning, we had a sleepover for the Barbies, which would involve playing games with Scott [Evans] and Ncuti [Gatwa],” she said.

She later added that ““Barbie is light and funny and silly and American and pink.”

“People immediately have an idea of, ‘Oh, Margot is playing Barbie, I know what that is,'” she said, “But our goal is to be like, ‘Whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something totally different — the thing you didn’t know you wanted.'”
