It's time to set sail with Barbie as The Island Princess in this full-length, original musical featuring nine fantastic songs. After being shipwrecked on an island as a little girl, Rosella (Barbie) grows up learning to talk and sing with a family of loving animals: the red panda Sagi, the peacock Azul and the baby elephant Tika. But when Prince Antonio discovers their tropical paradise, curiosity about her past leads Rosella to journey with the prince to his castle. As she and her animal friends explore civilization, they uncover an evil plot to take over the kingdom! Through its heart-warming ending, Barbie as the Island Princess shows that when love guides you, miracles may be closer than you know.
Sometimes it's difficult finding one's place in the world and, while a young shipwrecked girl named Ro couldn't ask for better friends than the animals that raised her on a South Seas island, she wonders about her parents and where she came from. When avid explorer Prince Antonio discovers the island, he offers Ro a chance to return to civilization and Ro convinces her friends Tika the elephant, Sagi the red panda, and Azul the peacock to accompany her. Once in the Prince's kingdom, Ro and her friends feel hopelessly out of place and fall prey to the tricks of a scheming traitor. Just when it seems that Ro may never find her parents, feel comfortable in the civilized world, nor realize her love for the Prince, Ro gets a hint of her mother's identity and finds an opportunity to prove her goodness to the royal family. This CGI animated musical stars Barbie and features nine very nice original songs. The animation is adequate, if not particularly realistic, and the story, though it's certainly been told before, holds the interest of children ages 3 to 7 years. - -Tami Horiuchi

She has a Barbie Island Princess book, has read it many, many times, she loved the little hair piece that came in the book, she fell asleep wearing it last night after watching the movie.
With so much junk out there now that is aimed at kids, and family, as family entertainment, it's nice to be able to know that the Barbie movies are going to be safe for everyone, they might be a little cheesy for adults, but the content is always reliable for safe viewing, and always has a positive message in them, never anything I question, or have to regret letting her see.
As long as my daughter is entertained by Barbie, I will keep buying the Barbie movies.
I won't go into the specifics of plot, which can be found elsewhere, but my daughter is 6 and anything involving princesses and music is where her main interests lie. She loves this movie and has watched it multiple times. She loves the music and the humor - it makes her happy, so it makes my wife and me happy.
Barbie movies have surprised me with their level of excellence. Celebrity voices are often employed and Kelly Sheridan is Barbie.
