The summer of 2023 will be defined by one thing: “Barbie”. Barbie is a film about Barbie (Margot Robbie) and Ken (Ryan Gosling) directed by Greta Gerwig and written by Gerwig and Noah Baumbach. It’s also the first time a Barbie movie has ever been filmed in live-action.
Which are the Main Characters of the Barbie Movie?
The latest teaser and character posters for the upcoming Barbie movie were published on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, teasing the star-studded cast. The upcoming Warner Bros. and Mattel romance comedy features Barbie stepping out of the doll world and into the real one.
Although fans have gotten a few early glances at Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling in the film (both official and unofficial), nothing is known about the supporting characters in the film directed by Greta Gerwig.
The new video and posters give us a better look at the human characters, as well as the Barbies and Kens and also hint at a cameo by John Cena, whose role in the film is currently unknown. The Barbie movie will be released in theatres on July 21.

Dua Lipa, the British “Don’t Start Now” singer, makes her acting debut in the highly anticipated movie starring Margot Robbie as the titular, iconic doll, with one of 24 character posters featuring the dolls’ transformations being published on Tuesday.
The first trailer for the film includes flashy dance and an allusion to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, suggesting that it will take a critical look at the legendary doll brand.
Robbie discussed the film with British Vogue.
“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, comment on male patriarchy and women in society.”
Before the movie’s July 21 release, check out these brand-new character posters featuring your favorite Barbies.
