About The Beloved Mini-Doll with a Big Impact
First launched in the 1980s, Polly Pocket dolls may be smaller than Barbies in size, but their enchanting allure knows no bounds. Evolving through the years, these tiny dolls have captivated the hearts of millions and transcended the realm of toy stores.
The Polly Pocket universe now spans fashion collaborations, multiple films, web series, a TV show, and, the most exciting addition, an upcoming live-action adaptation.
Lily Collins and Lena Dunham to Craft Polly Pocket’s Cinematic Adventure
Front and center in the Polly Pocket movie is none other than the talented star of “Emily in Paris,” Lily Collins. Set to take on the titular doll role, Collins is thrilled to embark on this magical journey, fulfilling a childhood dream of working with Polly Pocket.
In a social media extravaganza, Lily Collins took to Instagram to share her boundless excitement for the new Polly Pocket project. She posted a childhood photo of herself with a Polly Pocket bag.
“As a child who was obsessed with Polly Pocket, this is a real dream come true, and I can’t wait to bring these tiny toys to the big screen,” Collins further exclaimed upon the film’s announcement.
Joining forces with Collins is the visionary Lena Dunham, who takes on the dual role of writer and director. Collaborating with Collins, Dunham brings her unique creative touch to reimagine Polly Pocket in a modern and enchanting light.
Lily Collins will make her imprint on both sides of the camera by acting in the lead role and producing the movie. Industry veterans Robbie Brenner and Kevin McKeon, who are in charge of the project for Mattel Films, are working with her on the production team. The partnership continues with contributions from Lena Dunham’s production business, Good Thing Going, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) representatives Sandino Moya-Smith and Winnie Carrillo.
Speaking about the collaboration, Mattel producer Robbie Brenner couldn’t contain her enthusiasm for the dream team of Collins and Dunham. Their passion, creativity, and collaborative spirit have made the entire process an incredible journey. With such a powerhouse team at the helm, the Polly Pocket film promises to be a magical cinematic experience, leaving fans eagerly anticipating its future release.
What to Expect from the Polly Pocket Movie
As the buzz surrounding the Polly Pocket movie intensifies, fans eagerly anticipate the film’s storyline. Mattel tantalizingly shared that the movie will center on “a young girl and a pocket-sized woman who form a friendship.” Collins promises a delightful and adorable portrayal of Polly Pocket, reminiscent of the beloved ’90s miniature size that captured hearts worldwide.
In a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, Lena Dunham teased a fresh take on Polly Pocket’s adventures, promising to have fun exploring what happens when a small person encounters a big world. Expect the film to deliver the perfect blend of family comedy, magical escapades, and heartwarming friendships that will resonate with audiences of all ages.
Patience, Tiny Dreamers: When is the Release Date?
Since the Polly Pocket movie’s formal announcement as a feature film back in 2021, anticipation has been growing. The project has been moving along gradually, with Lena Dunham and Lily Collins already on board. The release of the movie is now much more anticipated as a result of Dunham’s completion of the final script draft.
Although Polly Pocket’s movie debut has been predicted by fans, it appears that pre-production is still ongoing. Hollywood projects have been impacted by the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, which might delay the project’s production phase until 2024. As a result, the most likely option seems to be a release date of 2025 or 2026.
