The new Barbie movie, The Princess and the Popstar, came out this past Tuesday. My daughter loves all the Barbie movies so of course this was on our list to get. She had some birthday money and chose to get this movie. Needless to say she has seen it about 8 times now since we got it yesterday!
This is the synopsis from the back of the movie:
In this sparkling musical adventure, Barbie stars as Tori, the kind-hearted
princess of Meribella who would rather sing and dance than perform her royal
duties. When her favorite pop star Keira visits the kingdom, the girls discover
they have much in common, including a magical secret that lets them look like
one another. At first, swapping places seems like a great idea, until each girl
realizes that the other's life isn't as easy as it seems! But Meribella also has
a magical secret, and when it's stolen, the whole kingdom is put in danger. Will
true friendship save the day? Filled with fantastic songs, fabulous fashions,
and fun new friends, it's an exciting musical celebration that shows the best
thing you can be is yourself!
My thoughts on the movie:
Overall it was a good movie, especially for little girls that love Barbie(like my daughter!). Like all the other Barbie movies it has a good message relayed throughout the movie. It has alot of singing and dancing that is typical of the Barbie movies. This movie was not as great as the rest but still entertaining to a 6 year old. If you liked Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper then you will like this movie. It even has some songs from that movie just re-adapted for this movie. I honestly think that the makers of these Barbie movies are running out of ideas(and songs) and that is why it seems that some of these movies are overlapping.
Until my daughter outgrows Barbie, these movies will still be treasured in our house and looked forward to each time a new one is released.
