Warner Bros. released the first teaser for their upcoming film Barbie on December 16, 2022. The teaser begins with a homage to Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi 2001: A Space Odyssey by showing a world with girls playing around and having fun with barbie dolls. The Barbie world shown in the trailer has showcased all shades of pink.

The film’s teaser broke the expectations of a Barbie movie to be based on a toy. Instead of the toy body of a Mattel doll, the film‘s teaser shares the first glimpse of Margot Robbie as Barbie in a swimsuit and Ryan Gosling as Ken. The film also features Insecure star Issa Rae and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the ten Rings actor Simu Liu.


The film’s Barbie Margot Robbie in an interview in June 2021 with British vogue said, “People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ‘Oh, well, maybe I don’t.” So, she already gave the hint last year to the audience to expect Barbie to be an unexpected film.

“I think there’s something about starting from that place where it’s like, ‘Well, anything is possible!’ It felt like vertigo starting to write it. Like, where do you even begin? What would be the story?” Greta Gerwig, the film’s co-writer said on Dua Lipa’s podcast.
