Estimated read time 3 min read

In the glamorous world of Hollywood, where blockbuster sequels are often the norm, the fate of a potential “Barbie” movie sequel remains uncertain. Director Greta Gerwig, renowned for her Oscar-nominated work, has shed some light on the matter, albeit leaving room for speculation.

On the red carpet at the Gotham Awards, Gerwig hinted at the possibility of a “Barbie” sequel but made it clear that as of now, there are no concrete plans in motion. “I mean, at the moment we are at zero,” she told Entertainment Tonight when questioned about the sequel’s status. Despite this, Gerwig’s stance wasn’t an outright rejection, as she added, “Life is long, you never know.”

Margot Robbie, the talented actress who not only starred as the iconic Mattel doll but also produced the film, shared her thoughts on the buzz surrounding another installment in the “Barbie” franchise. Robbie emphasized that the team had poured their heart and soul into the current movie. “We didn’t build it to be a trilogy or something,” she mentioned. “Greta put everything into this movie, so I can’t imagine what would be next.”

The “Barbie” movie stars Margot Robbie as Barbie herself and features Ryan Gosling as Ken, exploring Barbie’s journey through an existential crisis in the whimsical world of Barbieland.

The tremendous success of the initial “Barbie” movie upon its July release is undeniable. Within the first few weeks, this summer blockbuster achieved a staggering $1.03 billion at the global box office, according to official Warner Bros. estimates. Notably, this accomplishment made Greta Gerwig the first solo female director to helm a billion-dollar movie. (It’s worth mentioning that “Barbie” was distributed by Warner Bros., which is owned by CNN’s parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.)

Reflecting on this remarkable achievement, Gerwig remarked, “It’s been an amazing year. You always hope that things connect and you believe in them, but this was beyond anything I could have foreseen.”

While the future of a “Barbie” sequel remains uncertain, the success of the original film has left fans hopeful for more adventures in Barbieland. Whether or not Barbie and Ken will grace the silver screen once again, only time will tell.
