What occurs within the Barbie teaser trailer?
Properly, you possibly can see for your self beneath, however principally nothing…and every thing. It’s bought Margot Robbie’s Barbie rising in a dusty desert on the daybreak of time, clad in a traditional striped bather and open-toe mules, naturally. There are super-tight curled bangs. We’ve bought flashes of Ryan Gosling in a fringed leather-based vest with a 10-pack of bronzed abs peeking out beneath. There are transient snippets of dance numbers that includes Issa Rae and Simu Liu. Oh, and a picture of Barbie searching into a really pink Barbie world (Barbieland? Barbieverse?). I don’t assume we get to see the Barbie RV however then once more, most of it flashes so shortly, it feels extra like a fever dream than a Barbie teaser.
Keep tuned for extra because the manufacturing inevitably rolls out extra within the coming months. In any case, life in plastic, it’s improbable.
