Barbie has been a worldwide popular doll ever since it debuted, but now the product will have its first live action movie.

The movie is being made by Warner Bros and Margot Robbie has signed on to play the main character.

For a while now, Sony Pictures was interested in making a Barbie movie starring Amy Schumer.

It was supposed to be a movie about not judging others from their appearance, but the project never got off the ground due to scheduling conflicts.

Anne Hathaway was also attached to a Barbie movie, but it looks like those plans fell through as well. Now Mattel has partnered up with Warner Bros to make its own live action movie with Barbie as the main character.

Margot Robbie is not only going to be the star, but she is also a producer too. You can read her statement below as posted in Variety.

"I’m so honored to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide. I can’t imagine better partners than Warner Bros and Mattel to bring this film to the big screen.Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child’s journey to self-discovery. Over the brand’s almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president."

While a release date for the film has yet to be announced, we should hear more details about the movie sooner rather than later. Hopefully the movie ends up being enjoyable.
