Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie’s Barbie movie has become a huge box office success and has garnered critical acclaim. With the film’s strong performance, fans are eagerly awaiting news of a sequel. However, at the moment, there is no official release date for Barbie 2.
Barbie 2 Release Date Rumors
Director Greta Gerwig has revealed in an interview with The New York Times that she currently has no plans to make a sequel. Additionally, Gerwig, Robbie, and Ryan Gosling, who starred in the film, do not have any deals with Warner Bros. to return for future Barbie movies. Given these factors, if Barbie 2 does happen, it is unlikely to be released until 2026, 2027, or even later due to the time required for development, pre-production, and filming.
The story of Barbie follows Barbie and Ken as they venture into the real world in search of self-discovery. Barbie faces an existential crisis that hinders her from performing her perfect routine in Barbieland. The film stars Margot Robbie as the stereotypical Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Beach Ken. Other cast members include America Ferrera, Ariana Greenblatt, Will Ferrell, Connor Swindells, Michael Cera, and Emerald Finnell.
As of now, it is unclear when Barbie 2 will be released in theaters. The official synopsis for Barbie states that Barbie and Ken are enjoying their time in Barbie Land but soon discover the joys and challenges of living among humans when they enter the real world.
For more Barbie content, fans can look forward to the release of Netflix’s new series of the same name. Additionally, there has been speculation about Margot Robbie’s salary for the film.
