Slip on your “Barbie”-themed disco dance outfit, because the critically acclaimed and crowd-pleasing box office hit is about to be made available at a mojo dojo casa house near you. No details have yet been provided about the various bonus features, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and other extras that will most likely be included in the film’s home media release, nor do we have an exact date on when fans can expect the DVD and Blu-ray to be made available for purchase. (Blu-ray.com currently lists the film as available for pre-order, though the physical media options come with the disclaimer of “No release date,” so stay tuned to /Film for future updates.) But at least we now know when fans can purchase the film on digital: September 5, 2023. The buzzy release will be made available to purchase through all the major online retailers, from Amazon to Apple to everything in between.
Directed by “Lady Bird” and “Little Women” filmmaker Greta Gerwig, “Barbie” features a jam-packed cast made up of Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling as (just) Ken, America Ferrera as Gloria, Ariana Greenblatt as her daughter Sasha, and Issa Rae, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Hari Nef, Sharon Rooney, Kate McKinnon, and even Dua Lipa as various Barbies. We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that Kingsley Ben-Adir, Simu Liu, new “Doctor Who” star Ncuti Gatwa, and John Cena came along for the ride as Kens, with Michael Cera rounding out the cast as poor, forgotten Allan. Fans can relive the entire experience right this second, as the film is currently still playing in theaters, but the countdown is officially on for when viewers can do so from the comfort of their own home, too.
