But now, film fans reckon they’ve spotted a few nods to another major film in the trailer after repeat viewings.
In the clip, Margot Robbie’s take on the iconic doll is seen driving past a movie theatre showing The Wizard Of Oz – and viewers have spotted a few more references to the pioneering film within the trailer.
For starters, the clip opens with a close-up of Barbie in a pair of glittery shoes, while Dorothy’s ruby slippers are obviously one of The Wizard Of Oz’s most iconic images.
Others have also pointed out that Barbie can be seen heading out on an adventure on a baby pink brick road, in what many have interpreted as a nod to the famous Yellow Brick Road as seen in the 1939 classic.
What’s more, Barbie’s outfit in this sequence is a pink gingham dress – in other words a Barbie-fied version of Judy Garland’s famous costume.
Some have taken these nods as a sign that Barbie will be a re-telling of The Wizard Of Oz, but while Dorothy Gale was transported to a mystical dream-like world, Barbie will instead be venturing into the “real world”:
Barbie will star Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as the titular doll and her boyfriend, Ken.
Issa Rae, Kate McKinnon, Nicola Couhglan and Hari Nef will all play different variations of Barbie, while Ncuti Gatwa, Simu Liu and Scott Evans will all play alternative Kens.
Also in the supporting cast are Michael Cera, Emerald Fennell, Will Ferrell and America Ferrera.
