“See you all in @barbiethemovie #BarbieTheMovie, from director Greta Gerwig, only in theatres Summer 2023”.

Nicola isn’t the only well-known name in the film as Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling lead the bill as the ever-iconic couple Barbie and Ken.

And it looks like the cast is as tight knit as anything as Emma revealed to Empire magazine that they had a sleepover, explaining: “Right in the beginning, we had a sleepover for the Barbies, which would involve playing games with Scott [Evans] and Ncuti”.

In an interview with British Vogue, leading lady, Margot shared: “People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ’Oh, well, maybe I don’t…’”

Barbie is due to hit cinemas on July 21st
