‘Barbie’ trailer gives fans a peek at the star-studded cast of dolls

Starpower fuels new 'Barbie' trailer

The new "Barbie" teaser trailer was released earlier this week, and it already has over 10 million views. A big reason for the interest, besides the iconic brand, is the seemingly unlimited star power fueling the film. Whereas most movies feature a couple to a handful of stars, there are dozens of celebrities who have attached themselves to this production. Here's a quick rundown of who you can expect to see in the film, along with ways you can partake in the Barbie craze as it sweeps the nation.

In this article: Barbie Doll and Vehicle, Skechers Women's Uno-Night Shades Trainers (Pink) and  L'Oreal Paris Feria Multifaceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color (Extreme Platinum).

Which stars are in the 'Barbie' movie?

This summer, "Barbie" hits theaters on Friday, July 21, 2023. Whether you watch "Bridgerton" or you're a fan of "Superbad," you'll find a celebrity that you love in this film. Some of the many Barbies and Kens include Margot Robbie ("Suicide Squad"), Ryan Gosling ("La La Land"), Emma Mackey ("Death on the Nile"), John Cena ("The Fast and the Furious" franchise), Nicola Coughlan ("Bridgerton"), Simu Liu ("Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings"), Kate McKinnon ("Saturday Night Live"), Kingsley Ben-Adir ("Peaky Blinders") and many, many more.

There are also several big-name celebrities in the film who don't play a Barbie or a Ken. For instance, you can also find Helen Mirren ("The Queen"), Will Ferrell ("Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby"), Rhea Perlman ("Cheers"), Michael Cera ("Superbad") and America Ferrera ("The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants") in this movie.
