🎵 Life in plastic, it's fantastic 🎵

One of the most anticipated movies of the year just dropped a new trailer yesterday. Greta Gerwig's live action Barbie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, is hitting cinemas this summer.

And with the trailer, the movie also dropped one of the most chaotic (and unexpected) cast line-ups we've seen in a while.

From previous teasers we knew that Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling would be playing the lead roles, as the iconic Barbie and Ken themselves, as well as Marvel star Simu Liu and Insecure actress Issa Rae.

But yesterday the official Twitter account for the Barbie movie dropped a series of promotional images, announcing the various actors who'll be starring.

Outside the picture perfect Barbies and Kens (of which there are multiple) they also have human characters! But everyone gets the same glamorous poster, including the unlikely cast additions. The likes of Will Ferrell, Helen Mirren and Michael Cera!

There's also a few familiar stars in the cast who are on this side of the Atlantic! Our very own Nicola Coughlan will have a part in the movie, alongside Sex Education stars Ncuti Gatwa and Emma Mackey

People are going absolutely mad for this Barbie news, as the hype builds for the movie coming out in July. Even though no one seems to know what this movie is even about 😂 (and do we even care?)

And Twitter was hopping yesterday when everyone discovered there was an AI tool for everyone to make their own Barbie poster. People were making ones for their own faces to pretend they were part of the star-studded cast, but of course Twitter always has the jokes. Here are some of our faves 😅
