Christmas has come early for Barbie fans as the trailer for the hotly anticipated live-action movie starring Margot Robbie just dropped.


The rather dramatic teaser sees Robbie's Barbie make a grand entrance in the middle of the desert where children have been left alone with toys.

After Barbie flashes her million dollar smile at one little girl, the youngster throws her baby doll away before the iconic Barbie logo flashes on screen.

We're then treated to a cascade of colourful scenes, giving us a first glimpse at Ryan Gosling as Ken and Marvel star Simu Liu as another Ken in the film.

Insecure creator Issa Rae and Hari Nef also star as two other Barbies and they look spectacular in the teaser, too.

The actual plot for the film has been kept under wraps and while the teaser is incredible, it doesn't really give much away.

It all looks like one big song and dance and we're officially sold! It should also come as no surprise after pictures from the set showing Robbie and Gosling dressed up in jazzy neon outfits were captured by paparazzi earlier this year.

The Wolf of Wall Street star opened up about how it felt being snapped while filming in full Barbie mode and it’s fair to say she wasn’t best pleased.

During an interview on The Tonight Show, Robbie was shown the leaked snaps by host Jimmy Fallon.

“I can’t tell you how mortified we were, by the way,” she confessed. “We look like we’re like laughing and having fun, but we’re dying on the inside. Dying. I was like, this is the most humiliating moment of my life.”

So far the trailer has gone down a treat online, with one fan writing on Twitter said: "Deserved an Oscar from this trailer alone."

Robbie has previously revealed that ‘whatever you’re thinking’ about the idea of a flick based on the popular plastic doll, they aim to provide something ‘different’.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie said: "We like the things that feel a little left of centre. Something like Barbie where the IP, the name itself, people immediately have an idea of, 'Oh, Margot is playing Barbie, I know what that is', but our goal is to be like, 'Whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something totally different — the thing you didn’t know you wanted'."

Barbie lands in cinemas on July 21 2023.
