Margot Robbie’s combination of talent, beauty, and her commitment to using her influence for positive change has made her a respected figure in both the entertainment world and beyond. Her performances continue to captivate audiences, and her involvement in various advocacy efforts showcases her dedication to making a difference in the world.

Given the success of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie film, there’s been a lot of buzz about a potential sequel. However, for Barbie 2 to match the impact of the original, it needs to address some valid criticisms. The 2023 hit movie set box office records, drawing audiences into the world inspired by Mattel’s beloved toy series. Barbie, introduced by Mattel in 1959, has been a globally cherished toy line known for its diverse range of dolls.

Barbie focused on “Stereotypical Barbie,” played by Margot Robbie, who lacked a specific career role, unlike many other dolls. ScreenRant reported that Barbie film might be shifting the focus to a different doll, which could offer a new and intriguing perspective, allowing for the exploration of various themes, from gender roles to the personal stories of the dolls’ owners.

Barbie introduced diverse Barbies from various backgrounds. Barbie 2 could delve into the global impact of the doll line, exploring how Barbie’s values resonate with different cultures.

Despite the diversity in the first movie, there are still many more unique dolls in the Mattel lineup that could be featured in Barbie 2. This includes characters like Skipper and Christie, who have played important roles in the Barbie franchise. Leaving fans wondering who should play the main Barbies in Barbie 2 or would they replace Margot Robbie?

It is unconfirmed if Greta Gerwig, who directed Barbie is willing to return for Barbie 2. America Ferrera, who plays Gloria, pushes for her realistic Barbies as she is an employee for Mattel. When thinking of a plot for Barbie 2, hopefully, fans should see this pursued even further, talking about the message behind in the first movie.

Who would you have playing Skipper in a new Barbie movie?
