Barbie Is My Most Anticipated Film For 2023. Yeah, I Said It.

Honestly, the more and more I think about this film, the more excited I become. With a director the caliber of Gerwig, working from a script by Noah Baumbach and that cast, how could anyone not be excited for this one? When Mattel was sitting in a boardroom somewhere, and an executive casually tossed out, "What if we got Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, and Greta Gerwig to make a Barbie film?" I am sure they were laughed out of the room. Now, here we are. The possibilities are endless for this. Will it take itself seriously? Is it going to be some weird toys-come-to-life style film like Toy Story? Will it have an underlying tone of dread like The Brady Bunch film from the 90s? A Clueless style comedy? Nobody knows, and that is awesome.

What I do know is that it is exciting to see this caliber of creators jump on a chance to do an IP property. Think about how positive a film this will be for young girls and women to watch now, instead of basically a glorified toy commercial. This is a reason to be excited about this film, and I think a lot of people will be. Barbie hits theaters on July 21st, 2023.
