A Barbie-less summer in Dubai? Here's what we know so far.

A Barbie-less summer in Dubai? Here's what we know so far.




Hey, Barbie fans! The buzz is real - the new Barbie movie might be skipping the screens in the UAE!


It was supposed to hit theatres on July 20th, but now they've pushed it to August 31st. Is it ever gonna make it here? Barbie's facing some drama worldwide too. Vietnam already banned it because of some territorial map issues. And that could start a chain reaction in other countries like Brunei, The Philippines, Indonesia, and Taiwan.

But the big mystery is, why would Barbie get banned in Saudi Arabia or the UAE? No one's spilling the beans, but rumours say it might touch on some topics that don't sit well with local values. If that's true, we might be missing out on some Barbie magic.


Fans are getting nervous, and with the release date creeping up, we're all waiting on the edge of our seats.


Will Barbie and Ken grace the UAE's screens, or is it gonna be a Barbie-less summer? It's a nail-biter! It's a bummer for all Barbie lovers out there, but let's hope things work out and we get to see this iconic doll's adventures soon. Fingers crossed, folks! Stay tuned for updates, and let's see how this Barbie movie saga unfolds in the Middle East.
