The first trailer revealed that Barbie would be leaving Barbie Land and entering the real world, but the most recent trailer reveals there’s a little more to the story. It’s revealed that Margot Robbie’s Barbie has been having issues of self-awareness. She falls off her roof instead of floating down, her feet are flat, and she asks the other Barbies if they’ve ever thought about dying.

As Barbie and Ken interact with the real world, they deal with people staring and laughing at them, trying to force them back into Barbie Land, America Ferrera’s character in disbelief that Barbie is in the real world, and a group of school students saying they “haven’t played with a Barbie since they were five.”

One clip of the trailer also shows Barbie and Ken being stared at before someone touches Barbie inappropriately. In response, she punches him, landing her and Ken in jail. It just shows how different her experiences in the real world will be compared to what she’s familiar with in Barbie Land.

Robbie and Gerwig have already discussed how the film will address themes like girlhood, growing into womanhood, and the standards that are set upon women. But in an era when the internet and online media are more and more becoming the toys of childhood, it’s also addressing the question: is Barbie still relevant for children?

While everyone from young girls to adults are expressing their excitment and anticipation for the colorful movie, it’s interesting to note just how wide of an audience the movie will reach. As Barbie struggles with her relevance and existence within the context of the real world, it reflects the struggles of women today. Fans can expect a fun, colorful movie that also subtly but clearly addresses issues that girls and women deal with on a constant basis.
