Barbie Land is finally coming to your living room on December 15th courtesy of Max. What’s more, the record-smashing blockbuster from Greta Gerwig will also be available to stream with an American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation.
Barbie with ASL was produced exclusively for Max featuring ASL performer Leila Hanaumi.
“Max is the premiere destination for storytelling, so being able to share the biggest movie of the year in ASL, the first language for many, will make this story resonate in a more meaningful way,” Max’s Content Chairman and CEO Casey Bloys said in a press release. “By offering sign language interpretation, we will build upon the film’s empowering message of inclusiveness and offer a unique viewing experience for the Deaf community to enjoy with family and friends.”
Barbie, both with and without ASL, will land on Max on Friday, December 15th at 12:00 a.m. PT/3:00 a.m. EST.
Consequence recently chatted with Barbie composers Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt about the film’s Grammy-nominated soundtrack.
