The summer of “Barbie” has become the year of “Barbie,” and Greta Gerwig’s movie starring Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Simu Liu, Issa Rae and many, many more has finally arrived on Digital. Each of the Barbies has different occupations, from author to president to diplomat, while the Kens are just Kens. There is one Allan (Michael Cera), and there are also some human characters.

With such a jam-packed cast you may be wondering where you’ve seen some of these actors before, or maybe just want a complete guide to all the Barbies and Kens. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Margot Robbie’s Barbie dominates the narrative with an adventure to the outside world, and Ryan Gosling’s Ken accompanies her. Several big names like Nicola Coughlan (“Bridgerton,” “Derry Girls”), musician Dua Lipa, the “Sex Education” trio Connor Swindells, Ncuti Gatwa and Emma Mackey and Kate McKinnon (“SNL”) play a variety of colorful characters from Lipa’s blue mermaid to McKinnon’s doll who constantly does the splits.

Here’s a complete “Barbie” cast and character guide now that the film is streaming on Max.
