When Warner Bros. announced its new take on Barbie in a live-action movie, some expectations were hard to get away from. As an icon of childhood, and with previous iterations in animated shows being aimed squarely at a young audience, the idea of a live-action Barbie movie just doesn’t seem like something to get overly enthusiastic about. Then came the announcement that Margot Robbie had been cast in the lead role, with Ryan Gosling as Ken, and now it looks like the cast has bolstered its star power by pulling in Shang-Chi star Simu Liu. With the addition of Oscar-winner Greta Gerwig directing, the live-action Barbie movie seems to be gearing up to be whatever people think that it isn’t.
