Plot of Barbie’s movie:

A Barbie doll is kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough, which is why she then embarks on an adventure in the real world along with Ken (Ryan Gosling) a “complete doofus” who falls in love with Barbie but loves the real world for all the reasons Barbie hates it (beauty standards, sexism, etc).

Finally, Mattel’s CEO (Will Ferrell) goes after the duo to bring them back to Barbieland.

“It comes with a lot of accessories! And lots of nostalgic connections. With that there are also a lot of ways to approach the story. People hear Barbie and think they know what the movie is going to be. Then they hear that it’s Greta Gerwig writing and directing and that’s when they think it’s still not going to be what it might seem at first,” expresed Margot.
