How to Stream Barbie So You Can Join the Party From Home

Fans will finally be free to immerse themselves in the whimsical Barbie universe from the comfort of their homes without having to rent or buy the blockbuster film.

Based on the famous Mattel doll and directed and co-written by Greta Gerwig, Barbie is jam-packed with pink everything from dancing to—philosophical angst? As the official synopsis puts it: “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 blockbuster follows Stereotypical Barbie, played by Margot Robbie, and Ken, played by Ryan Gosling, as they leave Barbie Land and navigate the real world. The film also stars America Ferrara, Will Ferrell, Emma Mackey, Dua Lipa, Michael Cera, and others.

Barbie dominated the zeitgeist after its release on July 21. It became the highest-grossing film in Warner Bros. history and the highest-grossing movie directed by a woman. It’s also set to be a major awards season contender this year with Robbie, Gosling, and Gerwig all nominated for their work on the blockbuster, respectively.

Those who missed the summer craze—or fans who just want to keep the pink party going—can stream the movie on Max, as of December 15. The platform also offers an exclusive American Sign Language interpretation of the film by Leila Hanaumi. Monthly plans start at $9.99 with ads, or you can pay $15.99 or $19.99 for ad-free viewing.

The fantasy comedy is also available to rent for $5.99 or buy for $19.99 on Vudu, Google Play, YouTube, Apple TV, and Prime Video. The services generally give customers 30 days to start watching their rental, which then expires 24 to 48 hours later.
