The updated Polly Pocket is slightly older than the prototypes of 30 years ago, but still contains foldable houses, polished to the smallest detail, which brilliantly activates children’s imagination and is the goal of the dreams of millions of girls around the world. Lena Dunham, author of the Golden Globe-winning sitcom “Girls,” played this doll in her childhood. The director and screenwriter decided to translate the images and stories that Polly Puckett had invented when she was a little girl into the language of films. Lily Collins, who will be not only one of the producers of the film, but will also play the main role, is invited to collaborate on this project.
As Dunham told Variety, the main focus of the film will be the friendship between the girl and her doll Polly. The director also said, “Polly Puckett has given me countless hours of childhood escape – thanks to which this doll has created my own little magical world.

She will play Margot Robbie herself, and Greta Gerwig, associated with independent cinema, is responsible for directing the film about the most famous doll in the world.
