In 1961, Ken was introduced as the Barbie doll’s male companion, and it celebrated its 50th anniversary earlier this year with a limited-edition collection featuring the pieces of top-notch designers, including Dapper Dan. Postponed in 2019 due to the coronavirus, the live-action remake is set to start in production in early 2022 at WB’s Leavesden Studios in London, with a planned 2023 theatrical release. Among the executive producers of film are David Heyman, Tom Ackerly, Josey McNamara, Mattel’s Robbie Brenner and Ynon Kreiz, and the film’s own Margot Robbie. There is nothing yet known about the film’s plot, except that it should be completely different than what the majority expects.
