The making of the Barbie movie was first reported in 2014, with Sony as the distributor and Amy Schumer supposedly starring as Barbie. The latter, however, had to drop the project due to "scheduling conflicts."
In 2018, it was reported that Mattel has a studio partner and that Margot Robbie will play the titular role. The movie further gained buzz last year after Robbie and Gosling were spotted filming around Venice Beach.
Barbie The Movie will revolve around the adventures of Barbie and Ken as they start their journey in the real world. It's set to hit the theaters on July 21. Watch the teaser trailer below:
