Barbie 2 & More Movies Already Discussed, But Margot Robbie Has Been Hesitant


A new report suggests that there have been discussions about a potential sequel to Barbie 2, but star Margot Robbie is hesitant to consider the idea just yet. Directed by Greta Gerwig, Barbie follows Robbie’s character as she embarks on a journey to the Real World with Ken (Ryan Gosling) after being kicked out of Barbie Land for being “imperfect.”

With the release of Barbie approaching, Mattel CEO Ynon Kreiz is reportedly enthusiastic about the prospect of “more Barbie movies,” and Robbie has been involved in early talks about future projects. However, the actress is currently focused on the first film. She stated, “It could go a million different directions from this point. But I think you fall into a bit of a trap if you try and set up a first movie whilst also planning for sequels.”

What A Barbie Sequel Could Look Like

Although the first Barbie film has yet to hit cinemas, the doll’s history in various multimedia projects suggests that there are many options available to continue the story. For instance, the Barbie Horse Adventures video game series features Barbie living on a ranch and going on adventures with her horse. Another potential option is a holiday-themed story, inspired by 2001’s Barbie in the Nutcracker, in which Barbie, Clara, and a Nutcracker embark on a quest to find the Sugarplum Princess. However, Gerwig and co-screenwriter Noah Baumbach would need to find a new, metatextual way to continue the story, building on the new lore established in the first film, such as the distinction between Barbie Land and the Real World. Additionally, the success of the first movie and its box office performance will likely determine the future of the franchise.

    According to a new report, Barbie 2 has already been discussed, but star Margot Robbie is hesitant to broach the idea of a sequel just yet. Directed by Greta Gerwig, Barbie sees Robbie starring as the iconic Mattel doll of the same name. The film follows Robbie’s character as she embarks on a journey to the Real World with Ken (Ryan Gosling) after she is kicked out of Barbie Land for being imperfect.


    Now, as the Barbie release date approaches, a new report from Time suggests that talk of a potential sequel is already happening behind the scenes. Mattel CEO Ynon Kreiz is said to be particularly enthusiastic about the idea of “more Barbie movies,” and Robbie has been involved in early conversations about such projects. That actor, however, seems more interested in focusing on the first one for now. Check out Robbie’s full comment below:

    The first Barbie isn’t even out yet, but the long history of the doll and its appearance across various multimedia projects suggests there are a number of options available to continue the story. The doll, for example, has featured in books, video games, and animated feature films, any number of which could serve as inspiration for Barbie 2 or other films, depending on how the first movie ends.

    The Barbie Horse Adventures video game series, for example, features Barbie living the ranch life, going on adventures with her trusty steed. A holiday-themed story could also be a potential option, with 2001’s Barbie in the Nutcracker depicting a magical tale in which the Mattel doll, Clara, and a Nutcracker set off on a quest to find the Sugarplum Princess. While there are a number of options available, then, for a Barbie sequel, there is one potential problem.

    As revealed by the trailer for Barbiefeatured above, the upcoming film features a very metatextual story, following Robbie’s character as she deals with major existential issues. None of the previous franchise stories have taken this route, meaning Gerwig and co-screenwriter Noah Baumbach would have to find another meta way in to the franchise, using the new lore that they establish, such as the distinction between Barbie Land and the Real World, to tell a fresh story. In addition to storytelling considerations, a potential Barbie 2 will really depend on how the first film is received and how much money it makes at the box office.
