New Delhi: Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling’s latest film, Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig, has become a hot topic since its theatrical release alongside Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer on July 21, 2023. The online phenomenon Barbenheimer began trending on social media prior to the simultaneous release of the two blockbuster films, but it was Gerwig’s film that captured the hearts of audiences. Fans have eagerly awaited the film’s online streaming release, and now their wishes are set to come true as OTT giants prepare to make Barbie available on their platforms.
OTT Platform & Release Date
After grossing over $1 billion globally in mid-July, Barbie is finally coming to the OTT platform on September 5. It can be pre-ordered for $19.99 on Amazon, but there is a catch: the pre-order is only available on Prime Video in the United States, and no similar upgrade has been announced for the OTT giant’s Indian site.
In Gerwig’s cotton candy-colored dream, Margot Robbie plays the iconic plastic doll Barbie alongside Ryan Gosling’s Ken. Along the way, Barbie discovers that the real world isn’t the progressive utopia she had imagined, while Ken becomes aware of a societal phenomenon known as patriarchy. The cast for Barbie includes Will Ferrell as the Mattel CEO, Connor Swindells, Emerald Fennell, Kate McKinnon, Michael Cera, America Ferrera, Nicola Coughlan, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Sharon Rooney, Ana Cruz Kayne, Ritu Arya and Jamie Demetriou.
