Barbie, because the teaser trailer of the film promises very well


Welcome to Barbie Land! After a long wait, the teaser trailer for Barbie has finally arrived, the film by Greta Gerwig featuring the most famous doll of all time. Shrouded in these months by the most absolute secrecy and a fair dose of mystery, the film finally takes shape thanks to this preview clip: as already hypothesized, we move in a world in which there is a Barbie played by Margot Robbie and a Ken , portrayed by Ryan Gosling . But that's not all: there are many variations of Barbie and as many variations of Ken, as in a sort of shocking pink multiverse.

The teaser trailer and the various posters that accompany it have revealed the variegated parterre of interpreters that we will see participating in the films, representing protagonists of all shapes and origins: among the Barbies we see Issa Rae from Insecure , America Ferrera from Ugly Betty , Nicola Coughlan from Bridgerton , the extravagant Kate McKinnon , Emma Mackey from Sex Education , the transgender actress seen in Transparent Hari Nef and many others. Similarly, Ken will have several incarnations, including those of Simu Liu ( Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings ), Michael Cera ( Suxbad ), Kingsley Ben-Adirn ( The Oa, Secret Invasion ) and Ncuti Gatwa ( Sex Education ). Among the surprises of the cast also Will Ferrell who will play Connor Swindells, CEO of Mattel, and the pop star Dua Lipa who will show off a blue wig and the tail of a wonderful Barbie mermaid.

But the large group of actors and actresses isn't the only reason why this trailer only increases the spasmodic wait that accompanies the arrival of this film: from these scenes you can already sense the surreal dimension and cartoony of the whole story. Right from the small details, such as Barbie's feet that remain in the angle set by the ever-present stiletto heels or the war of the Kens on the beach that can be glimpsed at a certain point, we know we are faced with a decidedly extravagant and above lines. However, the fact that Robbie's Barbie at a certain point, accompanied by Ken-Gosling and his inseparable rollerblades, tries to venture towards the real world tells us that sooner or later even the plastic patina will have to fall, leaving room for an inevitable humanity.

Even the main poster of the film, which reads “ She can be anything she wants. He's just Ken ”, promises not bad perspective reversals. To find out what will actually happen in the plot developed by Gerwig herself with her partner Noah Baumbach (The Meyerowitz Stories, Story of a Marriage), we will have to wait for the cinema debut scheduled in Italian cinemas for next July 20th.
