The latest trailer for ‘Barbie’ has revealed more plot details.

The cast of Greta Gerwig’s upcoming ‘Barbie’ movie has kept plot details of the highly-anticipated movie firmly under wraps.

Until today, when the movie’s latest trailer finally offered a first look at the plot and what to expect from the toy-themed movie.

‘Barbie’ stars Margot Robbie as Barbie, Ryan Gosling as Ken, and also includes America Ferrera as Gloria, Issa Rae as President Barbie, Dua Lipa as Mermaid Barbie, John Cena as Merman Ken, and many more Barbies and Kens.

Barbie’s existential crisis

The trailer begins with an up-close look at Barbie walking down a hallway in fluffy pink heeled mules, until she removes her shoes, revealing her signature lifted feet.

She then floats down her house into her pink convertible, before shifting to a scene where she invites Ken (Ryan Gosling) to a “blowout”, a choreographed dance party, where Barbie, mid-dance asks the surrounding Barbies, “Do you guys ever think about dying?”, causing everyone to stop.

She later reveals that she’s been experiencing a number of other odd occurrences, including flat feet, falling off her house, and (imaginary) cold showers.

Barbie seeks advice from Weird Barbie (Kate McKinnon), a Barbie with harshly cut hair and marker scribbles on her face, who tells her she must choose to either go back to her regular life or explore the real world to find out what’s causing her existential crisis.

Barbie is then joined by Ken on a road trip to the real world, where they encounter an ogling group of people who laugh at their outfits. Someone even slaps her butt, causing her to punch him in the face, leading to Barbie and Ken getting arrested.

Another plot detail in the trailer shows that Mattel’s CEO (Will Ferrell) begins hunting down Barbie in the real world, saying “If this got out, this could mean extremely weird things for our world.”

A star-studded soundtrack

The ‘Barbie’ movie’s official soundtrack titled, ‘Barbie: The Album,’ features a number of guest stars, including Dua Lipa, Charli XCX, Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice, PinkPantheress, Lizzo, and many more.

It will also feature a rework of Aqua’s hit 1997 song ‘Barbie Girl,’ with Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice, called ‘Barbie World.’

When will ‘Barbie’ be released?

Barbie will be released in theaters on July 21, 2023.
