Come On, Barbie, Let’s Go Party!

By Elika Kalami 

Following the release of the infamous Minions movie in the summer of 2022, millions of viewers attended movie theaters in professional attire, suits, and even minion gear. The movie’s debut consumed the internet and news headlines for weeks. This year, a new upcoming movie is bound to engross the media — Barbie. On July 21, 2023, the girls and the gays will stampede at movie theaters worldwide, decked out in pink, glitter, and glam. The anticipation for Barbie has only increased since its announcement a few years back. Directed by the marvelous Greta Gerwig, the movie follows Barbie and her exposure to the human world. While most of the plot has remained a secret, I have no doubt that Gerwig will pleasantly surprise us all. Barbie features a well-crafted cast, including Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Michael Cera, and more. With such eminent actors and characters, it is no surprise that Barbie looks poised to be one of the summer’s most prominent movie hits. The hype builds up with every additional plot detail, movie poster, and snippet we get. July 21 is a day anticipated by children, teenagers, and adults alike. Until then, my friends and I will count down the days and plan our glamorous outfits for the Barbie movie’s premiere!
