You don’t have to be particularly smart to know that after the millions that Barbie made at the box office (over $1.4 billion), the studio wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a sequel. We are aware that the protagonists may repeat themselves (Ryan Gosling, Margot Robbie, etc.), but there may be many surprises in the musical field, as well as in performances and cameos. In fact, many are already starting to place their bets after watching Taylor Swift and Greta Gerwig face off.
The American singer and the director of the popular film were spotted leaving a restaurant along with other famous faces like Laura Dern and Zoe Kravitz. Barbie could have new companions with whom she can try to take the silver screen by storm again. A path that will take time because we have to take into account the strike of screenwriters and authors that has paralyzed Hollywood in order to achieve better rights for them.
Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria was the exclusive Italian restaurant where this meeting took place, which many interpret as a dinner with friends and others consider as a first contact for what is to come.
Because if Barbie built much of its success on the months-long promotion of many songs by stars like Nicki Minaj, Dua Lipa, Billie Eilish and Sam Smith, the central axis for Barbie 2 could be the involvement of Taylor Swift.
Rumor has it that Warner Bros. had already tapped the composer to create several songs for the soundtrack and of course make a prominent appearance in the film, as was the case with Dua Lipa and her Dance the Night from the film. Mermaid Barbie.
It wouldn’t be surprising if Taylor Swift could get involved in a new major musical project as a possible sequel to Barbie, after maintaining a musical production rate of almost three albums per year for several years. Now that the re-recording of her first albums to regain the rights to her songs is almost complete, a new horizon on the big screen could be opening up for her. Both musically and cinematically.
