You Can Watch ‘Barbie’ at Home for $5.99: Here’s How to Stream the Movie on Digital & Buy the Blu-ray

You can finally stream Barbie from home — for much less than the original price. The blockbuster arrived on Prime Video and other digital platforms in September, and it’s now cheaper that it used to be.

Barbie is available to rent for $5.99 ($19.99 to buy) on Prime Video, Apple’s iTunes and other streaming platforms. The movie was previously listed at $24.99 to rent and $29.99 to purchase a digital copy.

Margo Robbie and Ryan Gosling star as Barbie and Ken in the Greta Gerwig-directed movie, which follows the beloved doll on a journey to the real world. Barbie secured the biggest opening of the year, sailing past The Super Mario Bros. Movie and making history as the biggest box-office opening for a female director.

But the pink wave didn’t stop there. Barbie won the Golden Globe award for cinematic and box office achievement on Sunday (Jan. 7). It’s almost no surprise as the film has raked in more than $1 billion at the box office, including a massive $155 million domestic hall during its opening weekend, $93 million in its second weekend and became the highest grossing movie of 2023.

Similar to other Warner Bros. blockbusters such as Top Gun: Maverick taking a few months to land digitally, audiences had to wait a little while before Barbie made its digital debut. The Barbie movie was originally scheduled for digital release on Sept. 5, Variety reported in August. Now that the wait is over, you can order Barbie on Prime Video, save it to your watch list and stream it at your leisure.

Barbie mania even helped push Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer to a whopping $80 million debut due in part to moviegoers opting for the “Barbenheimer” double feature.

How to Watch Barbie for Free

When will the Barbie movie stream for free? The hit film is already available to stream free on Max. If you already have a Max subscription, you can watch the movie for free at no additional cost. Just sign into your account and you’ll find it within the movie library.
