Christmas King, Will Ferrell has applauded Margot Robbie. The Elf actor is known for his comedic timing and amazing acting while Suicide Squad actress Margot Robbie is known for action thrillers. The duo will be seen working together for the first time in the star-studded movie Barbie. In a pink world, the movie will manage to bring out a new point of view in the picture-perfect image.
The Greta Gerwig direction will star Ferrell as CEO of Mattel, the company that produces Barbie dolls, with Margot as the lead character, Barbie, and Gosling as Ken. Unlike the advertisements we have been seeing of the plastic doll, the live-action flick gives a hilariously twisted look to the toy world.
What did Will Ferrell say about Margot Robbie playing the lead in Barbie?
As the excitement for Barbie grows, we often get a sneak peek at the movie’s set. Will Ferrell also gave an interesting insight into Robbie’s character. As per a source, he touched upon the topic of Barbie during an interview and said how it was, “Just an amazing comment on male patriarchy and women in society.” The Spirited star mentioned how every little girl still wants as a Barbie and how fantastic he found the upcoming film to be when he read the script.
The 55-year-old also added how the movie is an homage to the brand while also being satirical. The movie also casts America Ferrera, Simu Liu, and Ncuti Gatwa amongst others. Despite trying to keep an air of suspense in the comedy fantasy movie, pictures of costumes from the sets were leaked, leading to the disappointment of the crew.
But director Greta Gerwig ensured that there is a lot more to see than what is already out. Despite the colorful and cheerful look, Robbie assured fans that the plot will not be how everyone is expecting it to be. While the plastic doll has sparked debates about self-image, seeing their childhood toy come alive has been thrilling.
Barbie is set to be released on 23 July 2023. Are you excited to watch the live-action film Barbie? Let us know in the comments.
