Another Solid Barbie Singing Movie
on September 5, 2012
Mattel's tradition of putting out singing friends movies in Autumn (and fairytopia themed movies in Spring) continues with Princess and the Popstar.
In this movie (which follows the previous Barbie movie The Princess and the Pauper story similarly), Barbie is Tori, a modern princess wishing for a bit more freedom away from propriety. Meanwhile, Nikki stars as popstar Keira - who wears a wig in the same tradition of Hannah Montana and is a popstar by day and normal girl by night. Keira longs to be away from the responsibilities of being a popstar (making the next album, paying her employees, the late and long hours). Tori is hounded by her Aunt to become a proper and noble princess - but Tori is too full of mischief to be a boring girl like that. With the aid of a magic microphone (Keira) and hair brush (Tori), the girls are able to exchange places and enjoy each other's worlds.
The DVD contains all the singing and original songs you expect from the friends' series of Barbie DVDs. And, of course, that bit of fashion and magic that has come to be the hallmark of the modern Barbie movies.
My 9 year old loves each new DVD the best and this one is no exception. It's as entertaining and good for rewatches. The best recommendation - she has been singing the songs from the movie non stop since we got the dvd.
