It’s been over three months since the 2023 Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling hit theaters. If you’re one of those who missed its run in cinemas and are wondering whether it’s now available for streaming online, then you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we will explore all the different ways you can watch the Barbie movie, including streaming services, on-demand rentals, and physical media. We’ll also provide links to where you can find the movie, so you can start watching as soon as possible!

Is the Barbie movie on HBO Max?

Warner Bros. Pictures serves as the distributor of the 2023 Barbie movie, so one might have thought that the film is now available for streaming on the Warner Bros. Discovery-owned video-on-demand platform Max. Unfortunately, this is not the case, as the movie has yet to be added to the service’s library in the United States.

During Warner Bros. Discovery’s second-quarter earnings call in August 2023, CEO David Zaslav told shareholders (via The Wrap) that the company is committed to a traditional theatrical window for the film, heavily suggesting that the Barbie movie would come to Max sometime this fall.

“We really believe in the motion picture window,” Zaslav said at the time. Let this movie go to the motion picture window, play it up, build up that brand, then have it go into PVOD. Take it through these windows of economics that have worked forever, and we think work extremely well. And then put it on Max. And when it goes on Max, we think it’ll have a very good impact and that’ll be in the fall.”

Will the Barbie movie be on Netflix?

While the 2023 Barbie movie will likely make its streaming debut on Max and stay there exclusively for a certain period, it is still possible that the movie could be added to Netflix in the future. Netflix has a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Discovery that allows it to stream some of the studio’s films, including the Harry Potter movies. If the Barbie movie performs well on other streaming services, Netflix may be able to negotiate a deal to stream it on its service.

Is the new Barbie movie on Paramount Plus?

No, the 2023 Barbie movie is not on Paramount Plus. Unlike Netflix, Paramount Plus doesn’t have an existing licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Discovery, making it very unlikely for the Barbie movie to be added to the Paramount Plus’ library.

Does Hulu have Barbie movie?

No, Hulu does not currently have the 2023 Barbie movie in its library. Although the film will likely stream on Max, there’s still a possibility that it will come to Hulu in the future when its streaming rights become available for purchase.

Sadly, the 2023 Barbie movie has yet to become available for streaming online. But based on what Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav said in August 2023, the film will likely drop on Max this fall.

What is the 2023 Barbie movie about?

Directed by Greta Gerwig from a screenplay she wrote with Noah Baumbach, the Barbie movie opens in the vibrant and seemingly perfect world of Barbieland, a matriarchal society populated by different versions of Barbies, Kens, and a group of discontinued models.

Barbie (Margot Robbie) and Ken (Ryan Gosling) live idyllic lives in Barbieland. But when Barbie experiences an existential crisis, questioning her role in society and her desire for perfection, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Alongside Ken, they venture into the real world, where they encounter the complexities and challenges of human existence. Barbie confronts her flaws and limitations while learning to appreciate individuality and embracing the unexpected. Through her adventures, Barbie discovers the true meaning of beauty, friendship, and self-acceptance.

Is Barbie worth watching?

The 2023 Barbie movie has received generally positive reviews from critics, with many praising its humor, message of self-acceptance, and visual style. Of course, not all critics were positive about the film. Some critics felt that it was too sugary-sweet, that it did not have a lot of depth or complexity, and that it was not as groundbreaking as some other live-action adaptations of animated films.

Audiences, meanwhile, loved it. According to Box Office Mojo, the movie grossed $1.44 billion, becoming the highest-grossing film of 2023 as well as the highest-grossing film by a solo female director, the highest-grossing film ever released by Warner Bros., and the 14th highest-grossing film of all time.
