    In a press release Margot said, "Over the brand's almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president".

    "I'm so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide."

    Margot is the third actress to be announced as Barbie, with both Amy Schumer and Anne Hathaway dropping out of previous versions of the film due to scheduling conflicts.
