‘Barbie’ and Ken explore the ‘real world’ and life with flat feet in new trailer


She’s just a Barbie girl living in… the real world?

The new trailer for the film “Barbie” directed by Greta Gerwig, released Thursday, gives a first full look at Barbie (Margot Robbie) and Ken (Ryan Gosling) leaving Barbie Land to explore the “real world”, and we will go -y and say that today is “the best day of my life!”

That is, until Barbie is seen having an existential crisis.

“Some things happened that might be related,” Barbie tells her friends, adding that she suffered a “cold shower” and fell off her roof, instead of her usual float.

It’s not even the worst.

“And my heels…are on the floor,” Barbie tells her Barbie friends, who scream and gasp at the sight of Barbie’s flat feet. It’s pandemonium, and it’s hilarious.

As Barbie tries to figure this out, her first step is to see Kate McKinnon’s “Weird Barbie,” who tells Barbie she needs to go to the “real world.”

“You can go back to your normal life or know the truth about the universe,” says Weird Barbie, letting Barbie choose the path of the pink pump or the path of the human Birkenstock sandal.

And so, Barbie’s journey with Ken through the real world begins. “Barbie in the real world? It’s impossible,” said a human named Gloria, played by America Ferrera.

Clips of Barbie’s flat-footed journey around the world play as Cass Elliots’ “Make Your Own Kind of Music” plays in the background. We see Barbie getting arrested, Ken attempting to perform an appendectomy on a human, and Barbie running away from the villainous Mattel CEO played by Will Farrell, who is desperate to put her back “in a box.”

Producer and DJ Mark Ronson is the executive music producer for the soundtrack.
