A lot of us have grown up loving our Barbies and dreaming of watching your favorite doll on screen is not just a normal dream. I still remember how my little sister and I used to play with Barbie when we were kids.

I was always fascinated by the fact that she could move her arms and legs and had a cute little face. Besides, I think she’s an ideal role model for girls. She’s beautiful, smart, successful and independent.

Barbie is also one of those toys that have become so popular that they have become almost ubiquitous in our lives.

And with Margot Robbie dropping Barbie looks on the streets of LA is driving fans crazy for the final film to happen. Here’s everything you need to know about the film.
