With two academy nominated director credits and an impressive acting career behind her, Greta celebrates women and feminism in her films. In 2019, Greta wrote and directed Little woman, an adaptation of the classic of the same title by Louisa May Alcott, starring Florence Pugh, Laura Dern, Timothee Chalamet, Emma Watson and Ronan. She made a drastic change in the ending of a classic like Little woman.

In an interview with Oprah Mag, she said, “I wanted to give Louisa May Alcott an ending that she might have liked.” Greta received an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for Little woman, along with six other Oscar nominations for the film. Thus, Mattel Barbie In Greta’s hands can’t be Barbie’s obvious origin story or her love affair with Ken.

Additionally, Margot also teased that the plot is nothing like what we think in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I can’t talk about it. I want to tell you everything, me. All we can say is whatever you think, it’s not that, we’re going to give you something totally different,” she said.
