Let’s get it out there, the marketing for Barbie worked and matched the film really well. From the narrator’s comments, Depression Barbie to Ryan Gosling’s acting, it was an amazing film that I will be rewatching again and again whether it’s on TV or streaming services.

Now with the resurgence of media I grew up with such as The Little Mermaid and Barbie, I can’t help but dive into what a Bratz live-action could be. I don’t know about who the cast could be but in terms of plot and marketing, I have some suggestions.
