Warner Bros has unveiled the latest trailer and posters for Greta Gerwig’s highly anticipated film Barbie, which is slated to release in theatres on July 21. According to Deadline, a US-based media company, the new trailer shows a bit more of the dazzling world of Barbie Land, inhabited by the iconic Mattel doll Barbie (Margot Robbie) and her boyfriend Ken (Ryan Gosling), before going on to tease their departure into the so-called “Real World.” Barbie Trailer: Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling’s Upcoming Film Is a Joyride to a Crazy Land.

The poster also introduced the human characters from the film. America Ferrera, Ariana Greenblatt, Will Ferrell, and Connor Swindells will be playing the characters. Barbie, written and directed by Greta Gerwig, is the first major film production during Mattel’s current corporate era under CEO Ynon Kreiz. On a podcast last month, Gerwig confessed to being daunted by taking on the project. According to Deadline, “It was terrifying.”

“I think there’s something about starting from that place where it’s like, ‘Well, anything is possible,’” Gerwig told singer-songwriter Dua Lipa in an episode of her podcast At Your Service. “It felt like vertigo starting to write it. Like, where do you even begin? What would be the story?” Gerwig added that she took the film on given the sense that the “terror” it was bringing upon her was of the “really interesting” variety — that the film would challenge her in ways that would be productive.
