Mattel Films has described the upcoming Barney film as “surrealistic”, akin to an “A24” movie. As the feature-length Barbie adaptation awaits its release on the big screen, Barney is in the shadows. We have moved it to the top our most anticipated movies list now that we know Baby Bop is decapitated due to a walnut allergy. Kevin McKeon, Mattel Films Vice President, told The New Yorker that

“We’re leaning in to the millennial angst rather than fine-tuning the property for kids…It’s a really play for adults.” It’s not R-rated but it will focus on the trials and tribulations that come with being thirtysomething and growing up with Barney.
