Now that we know Will Ferrell is playing the CEO of Mattel, it’s safe to assume that much of the cast will either be playing dolls or possibly other workers at Mattel. The film is also the most diversely cast film of Greta Gerwig’s career with Ryan Gosling, Kate McKinnon, Will Ferrell, Emerald Fennell, America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Issa Rae, Alexandra Shipp, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Sharon Rooney, Scott Evans, Ritu Arya, Jamie Demetriou, Michael Cera, Hari Nef, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, and Connor Swindells.
Look, Barbie already has a Dreamhouse, but this is a Barbie Dream Cast™ to die for.
If you’re not up-to-date on all things Barbie, the doll is so much more than what the “Tiny Shoulders” documentary already covered. Barbie is a vlogger, a motivational speaker, a girl-power icon, and currently providing relatable memes to people on TikTok who don’t know how to parallel park. Barbie is the perfect balance of camp and class, and she’s remained an icon for over 60 years for a reason.
We can all party with “Barbie” when it hits theaters nationwide on July 23, 2023.
