Barbie movies confirmed up and, similar to that, the world modified. Are we speaking about Barbie, you ask?
Why, each, in fact! Ever since Greta Gerwig, status director and former queen of mumblecore, was introduced because the director of the upcoming movies, the anticipation has loomed giant. “What precisely is Greta Gerwig doing?” the folks (of Vulture.com) requested. “What sort of film is she desiring to make?” There’s additionally the truth that Gerwig wrote the screenplay together with her companion, Noah Baumbach, who’s behind indie classics like The Squid and the Whale. The teaser trailer is chock-full of references.
It’s an elaborate homage to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Area Odyssey; the historic implications of the introduction of her make up the narration by Helen Mirren, reminding followers of her work in Documentary Now! Margot Robbie, taking part in she, is clad in an actual re-creation of the unique Barbie outfit; Gerwig is clearly fascinated with the interaction between intellectual and lowbrow, between artwork and commercialism. However, what does that seem like in film kind? She’s a Barbie woman, however, what’s going on in her Barbie World?
The primary situation is that we don’t really know what the plot of the film is. Within the early levels of the movie, it was purported to be “a fish-out-of-water story à la Splash and Large, whereby Barbie will get kicked out of Barbieland as a result of her not good sufficient, a bit eccentric and doesn’t slot in,” Deadline reported again in 2018. “She then goes on a journey in the true world and by the point, she returns to Barbieland to put it aside, she has gained the belief that perfection comes from the within, not the skin, and that the important thing to happiness is a perception in oneself, freed from the duty to stick to some unattainable normal of perfection.” That plot just isn’t out of the query, however, the movie appears a bit extra meta than that description permits — the teaser implies particular data about Barbie’s real-world influence, for instance. Additionally, Will Ferrell has been confirmed to be taking part in the CEO of Mattel, which signifies that Barbie might achieve sentience (??) at some unspecified time in the future.

We do have one different enjoyable clue — Margot Robbie’s Letterbox account, which was unearthed after being promptly deleted. The class “Look ahead to Barbie” included such titles as The Truman Present, Splash, Puberty Blues, The Younger Women of Rochefort, and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.
The Truman Present has an apparent connection to the “CEO of Mattel” scenario, however maybe most fascinating is the inclusion of Jacques Demy’s The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and The Younger Women of Rochefort, each of that are musicals. Umbrellas is a searingly emotional, solely sung-through romantic drama, whereas Younger Women is a musical comedy. Given the quantity of dancing that’s flashed by within the teaser trailer — together with Simu Liu and Margot Robbie in a disco costumes — Barbie movies may be … a musical. To not point out Dua Lipa, the confirmed singer, is a part of the solid.
