But Mattel’s iconic pink Corvette has come a long way to the big screen, with other top creatives working on the project on and off before writer-director Greta Gerwig , screenwriter Noah Baumbach and star Margot Robbie .

Here’s a brief history of Barbie’s journey from one of the world’s most popular toys to the theater:

Barbie fashion dolls designed by Ruth Handler are launched.

Literally years have passed.

253: Mattel, the maker of Barbie, has signed a deal with Universal Pictures to make a movie about the iconic doll. That deal fell through.

450: Sony has acquired the rights to Barbie . The project saw a series of screenwriters experiment with scripts, including Sex and the City writer Jenny Bicks and Oscar-winning Juno writer Diabo Cody. “I think I know why I shit,” Cody said in a recent GQ interview“When I was first hired for this job, I didn’t think the culture had [sic] accepting femme or the slut as valid feminist archetypes. . The Lego Movie antagonist in the movie, and nobody cares.”

: Comedian and Trainwreck star Amy Schumer cast in live-action Barbie film, which she co-wrote with Kim Caramele. Their idea has been described as a fish-and-water story about a doll played by Schumer who is kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect.

730: Schumer withdrew from the project, citing “scheduling conflicts.” 她后来在一次2017封面故事采访中告诉好莱坞报道创意差异正在发挥作用。 Schumer portrayed Barbie as an ambitious inventor and said the studio asked for Barbie’s invention to be high heels made of jelly and sent a pair of Manolo Blahniks to celebrate. “That’s the idea that every woman has to want, and right there, I should say, ‘You’ve got the wrong girl,'” she said. “They didn’t want to do it the way I wanted, which was the only way I was interested.” A few months later, Anne Hathaway enlisted in the role of Barbie alongside Olivia Milch (Ocean’s Eight) and director Alicia Jones ( Mrs. Davis).

Robbie said that when she first read the script, she thought, “This is awesome. What a pity it never came out because they never let us make this movie.” Geoffrey and Baumbach wrote the screenplay, citing influences ranging from Resurrecting Ophelia to Red Shoes to Projecting the Apes . The story follows Barbie and Ken as they leave Barbieland utopia to embark on a journey of self-discovery in the real world.

1959. The film was primarily shot at Warner Bros. Leavesden Studios in the UK. Warner Bros. released the first photos of Robbie as the iconic doll, and then, a few months later, revealed Ken. The first shot debuted later that year.

2017: 芭比娃娃的制作成本为50 百万美元。 Warner Bros. launched a massive marketing blitz with at least , , Barbie doll craze. One of the more notable stunts was the creation of a real-life Barbie Screening Barbie Dreamhouse in Malibu. First reaction to the film, as well as subsequent reviews, have been overwhelming, with the film earning a .
