Margot Robbie is the spitting image of Barbie as she gears up for her role as the popular doll

Margot Robbie is making waves as the perfect Barbie in her iconic new role as the doll in the Warner Bros Pictures production.

The producers gave fans a sneak preview of the actress portraying the famous doll in the movie Barbie. The April 26 tweet features Robbie sitting in a hot pink convertible wearing a blue and white striped top with matching accessories, including a bracelet and a polka dot headband.

Barbie is scheduled for screening in cinemas from July 21, 2023. Robbie’s co-stars include Ryan Gosling who will play her boyfriend Ken, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Will Ferrell, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, America Ferrera and Hari Nef.

Barbie is a collaboration between Warner Bros Pictures and Mattel Films, a new division of the toy company.The film is directed by Greta Gerwig who co-wrote the script with Noah Baumbach.

“Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child’s journey to self-discovery,” Robbie, who is also a producer of the movie, said in a 2019 press release. “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 honored 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.”

Originally Amy Schumer was cast to play Barbie in a movie for Sony in 2016 but the comedian later pulled out citing scheduling conflicts.

“They definitely didn’t want to do it the way I wanted to do it,” Schumer, who had written Barbie as an inventor, said, “the only way I was interested in doing it.”
