Product Description

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!

Basically a modern variation on the classic Mark Twain story "The Prince and the Pauper," Barbie: The Princess and the Popstar is a music-filled story about two high-profile girls, one a princess and one a pop singer, who appreciate their own fortunate circumstances, but sometimes long for simpler lives. Tori loves being a princess, but sometimes she wishes for fewer responsibilities and more time for fun--something she thinks her idol, pop star Keira, must have plenty of. While Keira is living her dream as a performer, she's frustrated with all the time-consuming logistics her job entails. She wishes she just had some leisure time to write songs and relax--and leisure is something she assumes a princess's life is full of. Tori and Keira meet and discover that, with a little help from a couple of magical accessories, they can switch places for a day. The girls find out that life is complicated whether you're a princess or a pop star, but when they are prevented from switching back to their own lives before a big concert, things get really messy. Add in Keira's manager, whose main concern is promoting his own career, and a dire threat to a hidden secret that's vital to the entire kingdom, and the stakes suddenly become very high. This production is full of catchy pop music that includes a cover of Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." The program paints a glitzy picture of life in the spotlight that girls ages 3 to 8 will love--never mind that parents will swear they've heard this story before. --Tami Horiuchi

    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.

    This is another in a long line of fun Barbie movies. Many reviewers complain about this being a rip-off of Barbie: Princess and the Pauper, but it should be understood that this is not a rip-off, merely a different telling of a classic tale. The pop-style songs in this movie are vastly different than anything in Princess and the Pauper, which had a more traditional Broadway style, so I'm not sure what other reviewers are referring to when they say the same songs are being reused here. Similar themes represented in various songs does not make them the 'same songs', just like the same theme of the movie doesn't make it 'the same movie.' This is a fun, enjoyable movie with a light, pleasant touch. If you are looking for deep, meaningful themes and profound messages, you won't find yourself beaten over the head with them here. This is a fun movie, made for fun, for little girls (and anyone who likes a good movie) to enjoy. As with all of the newer Barbie movies, this is more modern in its overall feel, but happily, still retaining a good traditional foundation. The pop songs are, for me anyway, less enjoyable than the classical music of the early Barbie movies, but while they aren't brilliant, the movie still has a light and easy sense of fun, so if you're not too obsessed with this being the greatest movie of all time, just take it on its own merits and enjoy it for the truly fun movie it is, you'll be thoroughly pleased with it. Enjoy!

    My all-time favorite Barbie movie! You read that right, my favorite. My three year old likes it too; but as most parents know we have the wonderful honor of sitting through all the movies are small children are watching. This movie is fun and upbeat, the songs are pretty catchy, my little one sings them all the time. Sometimes I find myself humming one of them while washing dishes or folding laundry.

    In this movie The Princess and The Popstar switch places and discover how much they really love their lives. It is the classic story, "The Princess and The Pauper" but redone for today's day and age. Of course there are some parts that are simply ridiculous and slightly hilarious, but this movie is a lot of fun. I like it much more than the Barbie version of "The Princess and The Pauper". There is a song that is used, with some slight changes is verse, in both movies - I could never understand this and neither does my little. She likes the Popstar version much better.

    I highly recommend this movie for your little girls. I think that there is slightly less focus on fashion and toy-selling than many of the other Barbie movies. I have also found that the lead characters are more developed in this movie than in other Barbie movies.

    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! Lessons in friendship, working together & fitting in!

    This does have the same basic idea as Princess and the Pauper but is it the same movie? Not at all! The girls are more carefree and childish in this film, I mean that in the best way possible. You get two entirely different characters from Keira and Tori than we did with PatP's Anneliese and Erica. For one, these girls seem much younger and reflect teenagers of today. Also the music is bent towards pop (obviously) and they don't spend nearly as much time focusing on love interests as they do on showing the girls beginning to really see the world around them and how they can make a difference. This is not to say that PatP wasn't good, I love both movies equally, I just think its unfair to lump the two together when the only thing they have in common is that theyre both loosely based on The Prince and the Pauper (Popstar being VERY loosely based). As for the similar song, I assumed Tori was a descendant of Anneliese's royal family. I could be wrong but they were looking through that book and she sang the same words not to mention her palace was on a cliff overlooking her kingdom. Even if that's not the case it's their movie, they can copy it if they want. The thing I found ironic was that even though this seemed like a younger film my 5 yr old cousin didn't find it nearly as engaging as PatP but my mom and I loved it.
