The long-awaited Barbie is finally here, in all of its pink glory. Does a Barbie post credit scene launch a Barbie Cinematic Universe? This has been one of the highly anticipated movies of the summer, if not the entire year. Big fans of director Greta Gerwig’s previous directorial features, Lady Bird and Little Women, were interested to see how she’d handle a larger scale film, while others were drawn in by the ensemble cast of Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu, Issa Rae, and more!
With this film focusing on one of the most iconic, commercialized toys in history, the possibilities are endless to tell more stories featuring the titular doll, or spinoff other characters. Just from the trailers, fans are clamoring for all the Barbie and Ken content they can get. So back to the question: is there a Barbie post credit scene teasing more?
*Don’t worry Barbies and Kens, no spoilers for Barbie here*
Do you need to wait for a Barbie post credit scene?
No, there isn’t anything at the end of the film for viewers to wait for after the credits. For those hoping to see more of Margot Robbie’s Barbie, we’ll just have to wait and see how the reception and box office affect the franchise’s future. Gerwig has opened up that there could be more adventures to see. In an interview with the Inside Total Film podcast, she noted, “anything’s possible.”
“No, listen, anything’s possible. I would say today, the main thing I’m focused on is the next 15 days, and then I’ll see what happens after that.”—Barbie director Greta Gerwig on potential future installments.
Barbie has already received Oscar buzz from critics, especially for Ryan Gosling’s portrayal of Ken. Not only that, but the set design closely resembles enlarged Barbie products, like Barbie’s dream house or her pink corvette convertible. This feat alone deserves a nomination.
The Barbie movie is Kenough without a post credit scene
Just because there isn’t something to wait for at the end of Barbie, stay through the credits to see all the amazing people involved in bringing this film to life. From the star-studded cast, the set designers, the costume department, to the extras who were in the presence of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, we wouldn’t have gotten this movie without them. Whether you’re a fan of the Barbie doll or not, there is something for everyone to enjoy about this film.
