What Do We Know About the Barbie Plot?
Understandably, the plot of Barbie hasn’t received a lot of attention thus far. Most information about the movie has originated from public reporting on social media, except the early promotional images released in June 2022 and its debut teaser trailer.
Together with pictures of their first moments together, photos of Robbie and Gosling rollerblading in Los Angeles have generated a lot of public conjecture. Being Barbie’s first live-action movie, it will probably steer clear of what viewers have seen in an animated film.
It is unknown what era the movie will take place in or what genre it will belong to. We can safely assume that viewers should be prepared for the unexpected.
Is There a Trailer for the Barbie Movie?
On Tuesday, April 4, 2023, the first trailer for the Barbie movie was unveiled, providing us our first thorough glimpse of this vibrant world. The first Barbie teaser trailer, meanwhile, debuted back in December 2022. Since it debuted Margot Robbie as the well-known doll, it drew homage to the science fiction classic 2001: A Space Odyssey.
