After a first teaser that paid homage to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, fans now have a real sense of the dazzling world of “Barbieland.”
In what appears to be a fish-out-of-water comedy, we see Margot’s Barbie having fun with Ryan’s Ken in a hyper-realistic Barbie-inspired world – dubbed ‘Barbieland’ – where there are many iterations of the iconic dolls out there. to exist .
Playing on the quirky premise of what the Mattel dolls would do if left to their own devices, the teaser features a comedic scene between Ryan and Margot about spending the night together.
“I thought I’d stay tonight,” Ryan’s Ken asks Margot’s Barbie. ‘To do something?’ she replies innocently.
After a short awkward pause, he replies, “I’m not really sure.”
However, their plastic-fantastic lives are (quite literally) turned upside down when they are seen traveling to the “real world” in a car that shoots into the sky.
Will Ferrell also plays the CEO of the toy company as he somehow brings his figures to life and welcomes them to civilization.
The film is based on Mattel’s fashion doll line, which CEO Mattell Ynon Kreiz said the company expected the Barbie product to continue to grow, adding, “We couldn’t be more excited about Barbie’s long-term prospects.” ‘
The Barbie brand generated over £1 billion in gross sales last year and the doll turned 64 this week, first debuting with the original on March 9, 1959.
She previously talked about turning the iconic Barbie doll into a movie, but she told British Vogue in 2021, “There’s a lot of baggage involved!”
And a lot of nostalgic connections. But with that comes a lot of exciting ways to attack it. 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 say, “Oh, well, maybe I don’t know.” …”‘
