The “Barbie” Movie Trailer Is Pink Perfection

There are so many Barbies and Kens in this movie.

Warner Bros. also released character posters on Tuesday, revealing there will be numerous Kens and Barbies in the film who (surprisingly) have more careers combined than Rep. George Santos

The cast of Barbies includes Issa Rae (President Barbie), Dua Lipa (Mermaid Barbie), Emma Mackey (Physicist Barbie), Hari Nef (Dr. Barbie), Nicola Coughlan (Diplomat Barbie), Alexandra Shipp (Author Barbie), Ritu Arya (Reporter Barbie), Ana Cruz Kayne (Supreme Court Justice Barbie), Sharon Rooney (Lawyer Barbie), and Kate McKinnon (as Splits Barbie aka the final Barbie whose hair is a mess, wardrobe is mismatched, and forehead now features crayon or marker drawings).

Gosling, Simu Liu, Ncuti Gatwa, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Scott Evans all play Kens, though their careers — if any — are unclear. Based on the trailer’s witty, homoerotic “beach off” scene, Gosling’s and Simu Liu’s Kens may just be rivals.

The film’s remaining cast is equally star-studded. Michael Cera is the one and “only” Alan doll, who apparently was a discontinued Barbie character known to be Ken’s best friend. Emerald Fennell plays Barbie's best friend, the doll Midge. 

Helen Mirren narrates, as was revealed in the film’s December teaser trailer, while America Ferrera and Ariana Greenblatt play humans — not dolls — in the film. Rounding out the cast are Will Ferrell as the Mattel CEO, Connor Swindells as a business intern, and Jamie Demetriou as a “suit.”

So that’s what’s known about the Barbie movie right now. More information is certain to arrive ahead of the film’s release. Grab your rollerblades, because come July, it’ll be time to put on your most vibrant and perfectly pink fit and go party with Barbie.
