There has been a lot of excitement building for the new "Barbie" movie over the past several months, and we finally get a first-look at the colorful and plastic-y world of Barbie and friends.
Warner Bros. released the first teaser, and it looks surprisingly fantastic (we were skeptical but are pleasantly surprised so far). It starts out as an homage to "2001: A Space Odyssey" with dramatic music, little girls, their dolls, and one very tall real-life Barbie. We then get a brief glimpse of the live-action world of Barbie. There's dancing, shimmery dresses, and a whole lot of pink.
The film is directed by Greta Gerwig (best known for "Lady Bird" and "Little Women" and stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as Barbie and Ken, along with Issa Rae, Simu Liu, Ncuti Gatwa, Hari Nef, and more.
"Barbie" will hit theaters on July 21, 2023.
