Warner Bros. released character posters for the upcoming live-action Barbie movie on Tuesday, offering a first look at the full cast.

The comedy is based on the iconic Mattel toys.

“To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you’re a Ken,” the movie’s tagline teases.

As children and adult fans know, there are many iterations of the popular Barbie doll.

Margot Robbie leads the cast as main Barbie alongside Ryan Gosling as her male companion, Ken.

Issa Rae plays president Barbie and Alexandra Shipp is author Barbie.

The star-studded cast includes America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Michael Cera, Ariana Greenblatt, Rhea Perlman, Will Ferrell, Ana Cruz Kayne, Emma Mackey, Hari Nef, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Simu Liu, Ncuti Gatwa, Scott Evans, Jamie Demetriou, Connor Swindells, Sharon Rooney, Nicola Coughlan, Ritu Arya, Dua Lipa and Helen Mirren.

The trailer for the movie also dropped today, giving a glimpse of the pastel-colored world where the characters live.

Greta Gerwig (Little Women, Lady Bird) directed the film from a screenplay she co-wrote with her partner, Noah Baumbach (Marriage Story, The Squid and the Whale). Producers include David Heyman, Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Robbie Brenner.

In a recent sit-down interview with Entertainment Tonight, Gerwig said she became a “fanatic” for the toys while preparing to make the film.

“I went on a full Barbie immersion day. I went to the factory and everything,” she said. “I grew up with Barbies, but it’s sort of amazing what they’ve done.”

Barbie will be released in theaters nationwide on July 21, and beginning internationally on July 19.
