For those who can’t wait Barbie to hit theaters next year, pass the time by watching films that could be used as inspiration for the next film.

She, determined to win him back, manages to enter Harvard Law School, but she discovers a passion for the law and for herself that has nothing to do with her ex.

Revenge of a Blondeis a powerful film about a woman who finds herself without giving up all her feminine and “superficial” interests. She’s a badass, despite being dressed in bright pink 24/7. It’s the perfect film to prepare you for the glitz, glamor and feminism take that fans have come to expect from Barbie.

‘Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen’ (2004)

Trying to make the most of it, Lola lands the lead role in their high school musical, which brings her into conflict with Carla Santini (Megan Fox).

In Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,Lola lives in a dream world and often confuses reality with her grand perception of life. It seems like Barbie could take a similar route, with Barbie living in a bit of a make-believe world but then having to deal with the harsh realities of the real world.

“The Truman Show” (1998)

He may not know it, but Truman Burbank (jim carrey) life is part of a massive TV show. Everyone he interacts with are actors, and everything he’s done since birth has been on TV. As Truman uncovers the truth, he must decide what to do about it in front of the world.

The Truman Showwas one of the movies on Margot Robbieit isLetterboxd to prepare for his role in Barbie. This has led fans to theorize that the film will heavily inspire the next film, where Barbie will realize that she lives in a made-up world and must decide whether or not to leave her fantasy land.

Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey (2020)

After Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) explosive break with the Joker, she finds herself with a huge target on her back. Quinn faces the wrath of crime boss Black Mask and all the other criminals in town. But soon, Harley becomes unexpected allies with three murderous women.

Birds of preyis a must-see film by Margot Robbie before the release of Barbie. It’s a fun and colorful film with all female protagonists. It’s about girls helping and supporting each other.

“Enchanted” (2007)

In the land of Andalusian fairy tales, Giselle (Amy Adams) lives a perfect life with her woodland friends, but when she falls in love with Prince Edward (James Marsden) and arrives at the castle to marry her, her evil stepmother sends the future princess to where there is “no happy aftermath”: New York.

Delighted is both an homage and a parody of Disney tales. The film is about a woman driven from her fantasy land and into the harsh real world; it seems to be Barbie’s subject matter, so Enchanted is the perfect movie to watch as fans prepare for the next film.

“A Cinderella Story” (2004)

Sat (Hilary Duf), a California teenager, lives with her cruel stepsisters and works for her stepmother (Jennifer Coolidge) after the death of his father. Sam begins an anonymous relationship online, and they eventually meet at a school dance, but when Sam finds out his pen pal is Austin Ames (Chad Michael Murray), the popular quarterback, she panics.

A Cinderella Story is a variation of the classic story of Cinderella but told in modern California. Given that Barbie has been around since the ’50s, this upcoming movie will also serve as a sort of modern retelling of a classic character.

“Splash” (1984)

Allen (tom hank) is saved from drowning by a beautiful mermaid named Madison (Daryl Hannah) and falls in love with her, not knowing what she really is. Allen must decide if he wants to stay on land or live an underwater life with Madison. They must also escape the interference of a scheming scientist.

Splashwas also on the list of movies Robbie needed to watch to prepare for his role. Maybe her character will fall in love with someone in the real world, while being stalked by some sort of person or agency out to control her.
