With Greta Gerwig's Barbie movie finally making its premiere this week, we can't help but feel the excitement to watch the movie. This is why we've dedicated this article to talking about the Barbie movie: Meet all the Barbie and Ken characters from the movie.

The Barbie movie is one of the much-anticipated films this year. After all, the movie spent over 10 years in the making. Back in September 2009, Sony already started talking about its plans to create a Barbie movie.

But after a few executive changes, Warner Bros. Pictures acquired the rights for the movie in 2018. And now that the movie is finally coming out to theaters on July 21st, we're here to talk about the characters in the upcoming movie.

In Barbie Land, Michael Cera is, perhaps, the only male character who isn't Ken. Instead, Cera stars as Allan Sherwood, Ken's best friend, and Midge's husband.

In real life, there is an actual Allan and Midge doll that Mattel released in 1964. However, these two dolls were quickly discontinued.
