Across a map, Vietnam outlaws the Barbie movie


Share post:

The Barbie movie is scheduled for release on July 21 in every country save Vietnam.

According to official media, Vietnam has banned the forthcoming Barbie movie from theatres because it contains a map that depicts China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea.

On July 21, Vietnam was scheduled to have the national premiere of Greta Gerwig’s fantasy comedy about the well-known doll, which also stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

But when the government decided to outlaw the movie over its use of the so-called nine-dash line in several sequences, state media stated that the film’s showing times had been deleted off the websites of the main theatre chains in the nation.

Hanoi, which also claim portions of the waterway, frequently takes offence to China’s deployment of the so-called “nine-dash line” to demonstrate its broad claims over the majority of the resource-rich sea.
