The film has been in the works for a while, with Little Women’s Greta Gerwig at the helm, fans’ hopes were higher than ever. That was, until Warner Bros dropped the official cast list and it is star studded to say the least.

Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling star as Barbie and Ken but, as had been confirmed, the latest trailer is filled with Barbie and Ken variants that are set to flood the big screen. From Issa Rae as President Barbie and Ritu Arya as journalist Barbie there are an array of Barbies on the way.

There’s no doubt that you have seen a list, or a timeline full of customised Barbie character posters with the tagline “This Barbie is…” confirming the type of Barbie each cast member will play.

Each cast member has their very own Barbie character poster with their own tagline describing the type of barbie they are, much like the boxes for the popular dolls, and yes we absolutely want a Dua Lipa mermaid one. The drop sent the internet into a frenzy, with fans joining in on the fun and making their own posters with the official Warner Bros Barbie selfie generator.
