Warner Bros. has shared the first photograph of Margot Robbie in the much anticipated Barbie movie, which will be out in theatres July 21, 2023.
Robbie is starring in a live-action film playing Barbie, alongside Ryan Gosling playing her Ken. The 31-year-old had this to say about her upcoming role:
“Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child’s journey to self-discovery. Over the brand’s almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president.”
“I’m so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide. I can’t imagine better partners than Warner Bros and Mattel to bring this film to the big screen.”
In the picture tweeted by Warner Bros. Pictures, the actress can be seen in a pink convertible with a smile, looking identical to the children’s toy.
