No plot has been released just yet, but Liu said the live-action film is "wild" and "incredibly unique."

“I wish I could just show you what we do day-to-day because it’s crazy," the Canadian actor, who is reportedly playing one of several Ken dolls in the film, said. “When you’re doing a scene and it’s working, you hear, ‘HAHAHAHA!’ It’s the best feeling in the world. If you’re an asshole on a Greta Gerwig set, there’s no hope for you.”

Robbie also spoke out about how she has big shoes to fill when it comes to taking on this role.

“Right, it comes with a lot of baggage!” she told British Vogue. “And a lot of nostalgic connections. But with that come a lot of exciting ways to attack it. People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ‘Oh, well, maybe I don’t...’”

Barbie is in theaters July 21, 2023.
