Actor Daniel Kaluuya is taking on a new role in the new Barney film. 

This film comes from beloved children’s series Barney and Friends, but it will be made for adults. During an interview, Mattel executive Kevin McKeon said, “We’re leaning into the Millennial angst of the property rather than fine-tuning this for kids.”

He continued, “It’s really a play for adults. Not that it’s R-rated, but it’ll focus on some of the trials and tribulations of being 30-something, growing up with Barney—just the level of disenchantment within the generation.”
