Although we still don’t know much about Greta Gerwig’s plot Barbie movie, there have been rumors for a while that it will be some sort of meta-gag with Will Ferrell playing a Mattel CEO and multiple actors — not just star Margot Robbie — playing different versions of Barbie. Alternative Barbies are believed to be Emma Mackey, Issa Rae, Alexandra Shipp, Hari Nef and possibly Saoirse Ronan and Dua Lipa (with Scott Evans and Ncuti Gatwa possibly playing other Kens, opposite) Ken Prime by Ryan Gosling

Now we’re the closest to confirming that’s exactly what’s happening, with Mackey (from Sex education and Death on the Nilenarrate Empire through Variety) that the cast had “a sleepover for the Barbies” playing “games” such as table tennis with Evans and Gatwa (the next star of doctor who† Let’s take a closer look at that evidence: She used the word “Barbies” in reference to multiple actors in the movie and…yeah, that’s pretty obvious. You don’t have to be Detective Barbie to solve That Mystery of the carnival hairdresser. (No, we didn’t Google “Detective Barbie” to make that high level Barbie referencewe just pulled that out as true fans.)

So that’s pretty much confirmed, and now we have to wonder how many cast members will be playing Barbies and Kens. The other actors involved include: America FerreraSimu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Michael Cera and Kingsley Ben-Adir, and until we hear otherwise, it seems safe to assume they are all a Barbie or a Ken. Or a skipper. Or an Ava DuVernay† Or a Lara Croft (complete with ax for killing cults)

Barbieno matter how many Barbies are in it, it will hit theaters next summer on July 21, 2023.
