‘Barbie’, one of the most anticipated movies of this year, has generated excitement and controversy among its fans with its trailers. The iconic doll will finally make the leap to the big screen under the interpretation of the talented margot robbiwhich will star an all-star cast including Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Emma Mackey and Michael Cera.
The previews have given us a glimpse of what this film directed by the talented Greta Gerwig will be, and it seems that feminism will be a fundamental pillar of its plot, which has excited fans. However, some have speculated about the possible inclusion of LGBT+ themes in the filmwhich sparked heated debate just days before the grand premiere.
Barbie could be a lesbian in the new live action starring Margot Robbie, as suggested by their fans. While story details are scarce, the director revealed she was inspired by “glitter” and “colorful musicals like The Wizard of Oz.” This makes us anticipate a dazzling and energetic visual experience.
Recently, the British portal ‘Pink news‘ raised the possibility that Barbie is a character belonging to the LGBT+ community. According to his analysis, the first reason is Barbie’s apparent lack of interest in spending time with Ken. Also, at one point in the trailer, Ken suggests staying at Barbie’s house, but she’s clearly uninterested in any physical contact, leading fans to speculate about her sexual orientation.

Barbie and Gloria’s chemistry, highlighted
Also, in another preview, a lot of viewers highlighted the palpable chemistry between Barbie and Gloria, played by the talented America Ferrera. During a scene in which Gloria invites Barbie to get into the car, a look full of nostalgia can be glimpsed between the two protagonists, which has raised expectations about a possible deeper emotional connection in the plot.
While it’s exciting for some fans of the doll to see how this new film adaptation seeks to reflect contemporary values and promote inclusion in its characters, others have pointed out that if this theory is true, would be an attempt at “forced inclusion”.
The reality of the doll’s orientation in the film has not yet been revealed, but the truth is that with Margot Robbie in the lead, Greta Gerwig directing and an exceptional cast, we are facing a cinematic proposition that promises to entertain and open doors towards a more diverse representation in the world of cinema.
