First look of Margot Robbie in the live action “Barbie” trailer
On Friday, December 16, the teaser trailer for the upcoming Barbie film was made available online, offering audiences their first look at the comic spin that Greta Gerwig would be bringing to the iconic fashion doll.
The teaser video starts out with a reference to the classic “2001: A Space Odyssey,” which features young girls playing with baby dolls in a desolate landscape.

After that, we see Margot Robbie’s version of Barbie, who is dressed in the original Barbie doll’s black-and-white striped bikini, standing out among the other young girls like a monolith. She takes off her sunglasses and nods with an understanding smile.

Greta directs Barbie, and she and Noah Baumbach are also responsible for the screenplay. In addition to Margot and Ryan, the cast also includes Simu Liu, America Ferrera, Ariana Greenblatt, Ncuti Gatwa, Issa Rae, Hari Nef, Michael Cera, Emma Mackey, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Rhea Perlman, Emerald Fennell, Sharon Rooney, Scott Evans, Ana Cruz Kayne, Connor Swindells, Ritu Arya, Jamie Demetri
In July of 2023, the film Barbie is scheduled to be released in theaters.
