    The Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling starrer Barbie which released in July last year created quite a revolution in pop culture. Not only did it shatter all the box office records but was also lauded for its unique take on feminism in the garb of our cult-favorite Barbie doll which was an integral part of every girl’s childhood. Now, the latest reports suggest that the makers of the film are planning to go on floors with Barbie 2. Not only this but the makers are also planning to come up with a spin-off on Ken looking at the love which Ryan’s character received in the movie.

    Margot Robbie addresses the rumors surrounding Barbie 2

    Now, we bring you from the horse’s mouth itself on whether these rumors are true or not. In her latest interaction with Variety, Margot addressed these speculations. She said, “It's funny, that knee-jerk reaction in this day and age for everyone to immediately ask about a sequel. I don't think it was like that 20 years ago. This wasn't designed to be a trilogy. Everything went into Barbie, and that's how Greta works.” Margot also said that she wishes an entirely different movie to be made with this same concept of liberalization and empowerment of women.

    Margot Robbie wants another film like Barbie to be made

    She went on to add, “She finishes every movie empty, feeling like she could never make another movie because she put everything she had into that one. So I don't know what it would take to fill that cup up again for her. Or for us. I think Warners would also agree. I don't know what more could even look like. We want to make more films that have the effect that Barbie has. I don't know if it has to be Barbie 2. Why can't it be another big, original, bold idea where we get an amazing filmmaker, a big budget to play with, and the trust of a huge conglomerate behind them to go and really play? I want to do that."

    Well, it seems like Robbie has more or less denied the rumors of Barbie 2 and a Ken spin-off as of now. The movie had been helmed by Greta Gerwig. It clashed with Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer at the box office and emerged as the winner despite a tough competition.
