Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2 begins where the last one left off - Merliah is now a princess mermaid and her mother continues to rule Oceania.

Merliah wants to continue to be a teen and enjoy surf competitions while being human. But her mother wants her to transition into princess duties. It causes problems between mother and daughter as a big and important mermaid event approaches (Ceremony of the Tides - where the ruler's ability to make the magic merillia and heal the oceans is renewed). Meanwhile, Merliah's evil Aunt Eris has found the key to escaping her prison by using Merliah's human surfing competitor Kylie Morgan's jealousy against her. A new character, an angelfish named Allister, assists Eris' escape.

Barbie/Merliah grapples with issues of identity, responsibility, and being a gracious winner and loser in her surf competitions. As with most Barbie movies, she'll turn Raquelle (Kylie)'s jealousy from a destructive force into a positive friendship. And that friendship will be the key to Merliah accomplishing her goals and saving Oceania. It will also make Kylie a better person and help her reach her aspirations as well. There's a great message that bullying doesn't get you anywhere but that friendships transcend what any one person can accomplish alone.

In all, there are a lot of interesting characters this time and a lot of action - my 8 year old was entranced as she rooted for Merliah to arrive in time to prevent Eris from taking over her mother's kingdom. Especially fun are the band of bad guys - moray eels with a little electricity to boot (fun scene from the movie!). Also nice is that the dolls for the movie are inexpensive and all have speaking parts in the series - it makes play acting fun with so many characters to choose from.

This sequel to 2010's Mermaid tale continues to develop the story around the conflict between Merliah's human and mermaid heritages. As with any such conflict, Merliah's ultimate happiness depends on her ability to reconcile both in her life.

I personally thought this movie was better than the first one. As a parent, I really liked the messages about working together, forgiveness, overcoming adversity, learning to accept yourself and find joy when your life faces dramatic changes, facing your fears, and especially that there are more important things in life than winning. I especially liked the closing scenes because of the message that some things are more important than beating the competition and that life can honestly feel a lot better if we allow other people to share in our successes. As a fan of the Barbie movies in general, I was thrilled that Kelly Sheridan voiced Merliah. For me the voice artist change wasn't a deal breaker, but I definitely prefer Ms. Sheridan as the voice of Barbie. And, my daughter also really liked this movie.

There continued to be an emphasis on celebrity that I'm concerned about as a parent, though I was happy to see that while there was some commercialism in this movie, it wasn't as over the top as it has been in some of the recent Barbie movies. Though, on that note, the preview for Fall's Barbie movie, Princess and the Popstar, has me thinking that the Barbie line is going to continue it's emphasis on celebrity, which isn't thrilling. I also am concerned that this seems to be a reworking of the Princess and the Pauper concept, which I thought they did so well the first time that they ought to just leave it alone. But that is the next movie...For Mermaid Tale 2, I would definitely recommend this movie.

My granddaughter loved Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2. It's a great movie for little girls, and enjoyable for big girls to watch with them! We purchased "Tale 2" before we watched the original, but will be going back to purchase the original one, soon. I only allow my granddaughter to get 1 new movie a week from Amazon Instant Videos, so she has to put her requests on a waiting list. We LOVE Amazon instant videos!

My girls (7 & 4) have become major fans of the Barbie movies! Thankfully there are a lot of them to choose from! I think we've purchased most of the movies & the girls will watch them over & over again! This is the 2nd of 2 Mermaid Tales, my girls really liked it! It was a great sequel to Barbie In A Mermaid Tale!

Birthday gift for 7 year old. Entertaining for little ones who enjoy Barbie and mermaids. The recipient received Barbie in a Mermaid Tale along with this one movie at the end of June 2016 and has watch both at least 6 times.

We own a copy of this movie and gave it as a birthday present. It's very popular with my daughter and her friends. And even my 7 year old son enjoys it. All the Barbie movies are fun and appropriate. I'm so surprised at the quality of these movies.

My daughter and I love all the barbie movies. A Mermaid Tale 2 was much better than the first Mermaid Tale. Barbie plays Merliah, in competition with another surfer. The other surfer steals her necklace and is able to become a mermaid. Merliah again has to save her underground kingdom. Overall great music, good action, and age appropriate for a 4 year old.
