Beginning December 15, Barbie will air on Max (formerly HBO Max) as Warner Bros., the film’s distributor, owns the streaming platform. Max also announced that the hit film will launch with an American Sign Language version, promising to “build on the film’s empowering message of inclusion,” according to HBO and Max Content CEO Casey Bloys.

Barbie is also available to rent or purchase through video-on-demand (VOD) platforms such as Prime Video, Apple TV and the Microsoft Store.

The rose-tinted film, which Mashable’s Christy Puchko called “a marvel for a movie studio,” takes place in Barbieland, where Barbies are leaders, pioneers and rulers. Every day is seemingly perfect, but largely the same, as Margot Robbie’s Stereotypical Barbie soon realizes as she grows increasingly disillusioned and begins to think about death?

Barbie, along with her crush Ken (Ryan Gosling), decide to go to the Real World after Weird Barbie (Kate McKinnon) explains that the girl playing with her doll version is going through a crisis. Here, Barbie discovers the patriarchy (mostly in the form of Mattel executives), finds an ally in Gloria (America Ferrera), and must confront her built-in existential crisis. But another group discovering patriarchy? The Kens family.

There are many Easter eggs and unexpected characters along the way, and there’s no post-credits scene, so you can rollerblade back into the real world at the end.

It’s an all-star cast if we’ve ever seen one. With Helen Mirren as narrator, Barbie stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as the main Barbie and Ken, along with Simu Liu, Issa Rae, Kate McKinnon, Dua Lipa, Harry Neff, Alexandra Shipp, Nkuti Gatwa, Emma Mackie, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Sharon Rooney and more as fellow Barbies and Kens. The real world has America Ferrera and Ariana Greenblatt as the human characters and Will Ferrell, Jamie Demetriou, Connor Swindells and more as Mattel’s big bad guys, but there are plenty of other characters and cameos.

Two secret weapons from the movie? Michael Cera as Alan and Rhea Perlman as Ruth.
