The moment has come. The first teaser trailer for Greta Gerwig's live-action Barbie film is here, and it's got us thinking: life in plastic may very well be fantastic.

Word quickly got out about the Barbie trailer, which actually debuted during the premiere of Avatar 2: The Way of Water.

The result? The internet went into a frenzy, of course. Barbie fans desperately searched the internet for leaks and even considered copping tickets to James Cameron's film to get a peak at the Barbieverse.

Eager stans didn't have to wait long as the official teaser saw a public release on December 16.

The minute-long trailer opens with a gigantic Margot Robbie (the Barbie) towering over a group of young girls while wearing a striped swimsuit look — a nod to the Barbie's first 'fit worn during its inaugural launch in 1959.

In the presence of the new it doll, the girls smash and destroy their old baby dolls — it's a very Barbie-esque reference to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The remainder of the trailer arrived as quick glimpses into Robbie's Barbie world, which included more of Ryan Gosling flexing his oiled-up chest, epic dance numbers, plenty of pink, and course, the famed dream houses.

It looks silly, yassified, and over-the-top – it's camp, to say the least! And we're so here for it.

Our first looks at the film based on the Mattel toy arrived in April, courtesy of an image showcasing Robbie riding in a pink C1 Corvette, the doll's signature ride.

On and off-screen heartthrob Ryan Gosling later followed up with a subsequent teaser, giving the people exactly what they want: the actor flashing his pecks in a cut-off denim vest (Barbie PR knows what they're doing, and it's working).

Summer '22 saw the film's production break the internet, as viral images revealed Gosling and Robbie skating in beach-ready and cowboy couture get-ups.

Will Ferrell, who was also spotted filming over the summer, is also set to star in the film as the mean Mattel CEO. Names like Issa Rae, Simu Liu, and Emma Mackey also amongst the film's stacked cast.

The synopsis of the Barbie movie remains largely under wraps, but Robbie provided a broad clue: expect the unexpected (if not better).

In a past interview, Robbie stated that "our goal is to be like, 'Whatever you're thinking, we're going to give you something different — the thing you didn't know you wanted'."

Topless Ken? Robbie ending all other baby dolls? Outrageous musical sequences? Say no more. I'll be ready with my popcorn on July 21.
