Barbie 2 Is In Works? Warner Bros CEO Teases Fans About $1 Billion Blockbuster’s Sequel

Get ready to return to Barbie’s world! Warner Bros. CEO Pam Abdy has expressed interest in a sequel to the record-breaking 2023 film Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig and starring Margot Robbie.

The original Barbie shattered box office records, grossing a phenomenal $1.44 billion worldwide and becoming the highest-grossing film ever directed by a woman. It also garnered a passionate fanbase, evident from its inclusion on Letterboxd’s “Most Obsessively Rewatched Best Picture Nominees of the 21st Century” list.


Despite critical acclaim and box office success, the Academy Awards overlooked Gerwig and Robbie’s contributions. Abdy acknowledged this, expressing disappointment at their absence from the 2024 nominations. However, this hasn’t deterred Warner Bros. from wanting to continue the Barbie franchise.

Abdy revealed ongoing discussions with Gerwig about expanding the “Barbie” universe. Fans can rejoice at the prospect of Gerwig’s visionary direction paired with Robbie’s captivating performance returning to the big screen.


While details about the potential sequel remain under wraps, the original film’s blend of humor, social commentary, and fantastical elements promises a thrilling follow-up. Stay tuned for further updates on Barbie’s next adventure!
