“Barbie” was an incredible box office success, in fact, it’s the biggest Warner Bros. hit of all time. 

Fans have been eager for a sequel, but the movie’s star and producer Margot Robbie admitted that she isn’t sure “Barbie 2” is in the cards. 

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Robbie said, “I think we put everything into this one. We didn’t like.. we didn’t build it to be a trilogy or something,”.

“It was like, Greta [Gerwig] put everything into this movie, so I can’t imagine what would be next,” she added.

“I’d say the biggest takeaway for me is that original films can still hit huge at the box office. It doesn’t have to be a sequel or a prequel or a remake. It can be totally original. It can still be big given the big budget to do that,”.

 Robbie continued, “And just because there’s a female lead doesn’t mean it’s not going to hit all four quadrants, which is, you know, I think a misconception that a lot of people still have. So, it’s really important that ‘Barbie’ did well,”.

On August 31, “Barbie” took the crown for the biggest Warner Bros. movie over “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2″, which has the latter held the record since its 2011 debut. 

“Barbie” has gone on to become one of the top 15 all-time highest-grossing films worldwide and is the highest-grossing film ever directed or co-directed by a woman.

In July, director and co-writer Greta Gerwig told the New York Times she never could have imagined how well the movie would do. 

“Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine something like this. I wanted to make something anarchic and wild and funny and cathartic, and the idea that it’s actually being received that way, it’s sort of extraordinary.”
