It’s one of the biggest movies of all time, and now Barbie is about to hit the small screen.
Starring Australian-born Hollywood superstar Margot Robbie, 33, the blockbuster comedy about the famed Mattel doll is now available to rent or buy.
Fans have a choice of services online to access the billion-dollar success, including Amazon, Youtube, Google Play and Apple TV.
Viewers can buy the crowd-pleaser, directed by Greta Gerwig, for $34.99 or rent it for $29.99 for 30 days.
Despite being available for purchase, it’s still unclear when the film will actually hit subscription-based streaming platforms.

The comedy is the biggest hit of the year and has grossed over $1.4billion
Meanwhile, Hollywood trade paper Variety announced on Monday that Barbie, which Robbie produced, is the biggest hit of 2023 in the U.S.A.
So far the film has pulled in an eye-watering $626million at the American box office ($968million in Australian dollars).
Barbie’s total at the global box office is $1.4billion.
In Australia, the film has made an astonishing $56million since it opened in July, after taking $21.5million in its opening weekend.
With Margot Robbie in the title role, the satirical comedy is about what happens when Barbie enters the real world.
Oscar winner Ryan Gosling plays Barbie’s boyfriend Ken.
Funnyman Will Ferrell is plays the CEO of Barbie’s toy company Mattel.
The film’s quirky female-led energy, which helped to make it a popular phenomenon, is a far cry from what the studios originally thought they would get from a Barbie movie.

Talk of a Barbie movie first emerged in 2009, and over the years since stars like Anne Hathaway and comedian Amy Schumer tried to get a movie of the toy favourite off the ground.
But it was not until 2019 when Robbie got a hold of the project with her company Lucky Chap Entertainment and convinced Warner Bros. to hire indie darling Greta Gerwig.
Best known as an actress in films like Greenberg (2009) and Frances Ha (2012), Gerwig also co-wrote these pictures with her partner, director Noah Baumbach.
Gerwig later scored Oscar nominations for her indie hit Lady Bird (2017) and the high-profile period piece Little Women (2019) starring Saoirse Ronan.
