A Live Action Barbie Film will be coming to a big screen near you sometime in the future! Warner Bros and Mattel are collaborating to bring Barbie to "life" for the first time ever in a new live action film.
Excited yet? Just wait, the big news here is who will be playing Barbie and honestly we couldn't think of anyone more perfect! Margot Robbie is set to star as Barbie in the film and she 100% was made for the part!
The actress will also be producing the film. Here is the statement Robbie gave E! News about the 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 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.”
