For those of you who want to watch the movie again ahead of the Big Night (or who haven’t watched yet because #Parenting), here’s how to stream Barbie from the comfort of your own Mojo DoJo Casa House.

Barbie is available to stream on Max right now.

Max, formerly HBO Max, is the home of all things Warner Bros. And since Barbie is a Warner Bros. film, that’s where the movie landed for streaming.

What age is Barbie appropriate for?

Whatever you choose will be the right choice for your family.Warner Bros Entertainment

While Barbie (the doll) is intended for school-aged children, Barbie (the movie) is courting an older audience. The PG-13 rating is due to “suggestive references and brief language.” That’s not to say you can’t bring your 9-year-old (I did!) — every child and family is different and “appropriate” is often fairly subjective, but it’s good to go into the experience, whether in theaters or streaming, knowing what you can expect. And now that Barbie is streaming, you can always pause or turn it off it becomes too much.
