However, with the film officially released back on July 17, fans are now wondering when they will be able to re-watch the film in the comfort of their own home or perhaps even own a physical copy.

What is the Barbie film about, Barbie film meaning

The Barbie movie begins in the fictional world of 'Barbieland', where Margot Robbie's Barbie is the most popular of all the Barbies but when her foot begin to touch the floor and she has thoughts on death, she begins to experience an existential crisis and is forced to travel to the human world in order to understand why she finds herself in such a predicament.

The meaning of the movie, however, is completely down to your perception of it. However, many viewers feel the theme running through the movie is that of the toy's standing in the world and how it relates to the ways we construct our own identities. The film's director, Greta Gerwig, stated she also wanted to explore the iconic doll's "evolution" and her "moments of triumph and argument."

On directing the film, she also added: "When I was first hired for this, I don’t think the culture had not embraced the femme or the bimbo as valid feminist archetypes yet. If you look up ‘Barbie’ on TikTok you’ll find this wonderful subculture that celebrates the feminine, but in 2014, taking this skinny blonde white doll and making her into a heroine was a tall order.”
