COVER US IN YOUR GLORY, BARBIE!
Look, like all of y’all, we had no idea what to expect of this movie when it was announced. We didn’t even know what to expect when the first pictures of the cast in costume came out. Truth be told, we still don’t know what to expect or even what this movie will be about. All we know is that when we saw this image for the first time:
We absolutely clapped our little gay hands in glee. No matter what else you might surmise about this film, one thing is crystal clear: director Greta Gerwig gets the references and this won’t “just” be about a world of shallow pinkness. That is a flawless (to the point where we’re assuming a little bit of digital work was done on Robbie’s body) recreation of the original Barbie’s look, right down to the hoop earrings, stiletto slides and rockabilly eyeliner. We never expected to see something like that in this film. To be fair, there appears to be plenty of shallow pinkness to be found as well:
The pink Statue of Liberty and Capitol Building in Barbie Land are HILARIOUS. Like we said, we have no idea what this movie will be, since it looks like a children’s film but seems to have a very adult point of view attached to it. After all, we doubt there are any kids under ten who would even get the 2001: A Space Odyssey reference in the trailer. One thing of which we’re pretty certain: director Greta Gerwig and star Margot Robbie would never produce a story where Barbie was portrayed as a shallow idiot. We can’t wait to see what they come up with. We wonder which of Barbie’s many iconic looks will be recreated. We just hope the movie ends with Barbie sporting crunchy hair and mismatched shoes, like every Barbie ever owned by a little girl.
