Yes, you got that right: the iconic Barbie doll is coming to the theaters.
Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that it will be releasing the movie about Barbie on July 21, 2023, and rolled out the first look at Margot Robbie, who will be playing the titular role.
The news has made waves on Twitter, prompting diverse reactions, from pure joy to raised eyebrows. While some people wondered why the Barbie doll needed its own movie, others seemed ready to check out Robbie's take on it.
One of the fans even had a pitch for the upcoming movie.
But others believe that another toy-based story is a sign of despair.
And some people took issue with Robbie's age, suggesting she is "too old" to be playing Barbie.
Still, the majority of the Internet seems to be hyped about the Barbie movie, even if in some cases people are being ironic. Little is known about the film yet, except that it will revolve around a doll living in 'Barbieland" who gets expelled for "not being perfect enough" and "sets off on an adventure in the real world". The movie will be screened in theaters exclusively.
