Barbie: Princess Adventure now streaming on Netflix! Watch the trailer below.
Barbie has grown from a Mattel toy doll every young girl wants to have into an animated movie star. Every Barbie movie comes to life on-screen singing, dancing, and chasing adventures anywhere you can imagine.
After taking the spotlight in several short films and cameo appearances in blockbuster movies like Toy Story, Barbie has built up a large collection of her own movies.
Barbie has starred in 37 movies from Barbie in the Nutcracker (2001) to Netflix’s new release Barbie: Princess Adventure (2020).
Throughout Mattel’s Barbie movie collection a constant theme of Barbie remaining the heroine is evident compared to other princess movies. She is steadily challenging the status quo by inspiring women everywhere to chase their dreams.
Mattel now has over 17 Barbie Careers dolls that encourage young girls to grow up and be who they want to be instead of what society tells them they should be. Barbie careers examples are astronaut, doctor, photojournalist, athlete, pilot, soccer coach, and more.
As Barbie films continue to change over time fans have taken notice. Not only has the animation improved and the songs become more entertaining but Matte’s goal of “anyone can be Barbie” has taken center stage.
Surprisingly or not, long time Barbie movie fans seem to prefer the old classic movies over the new age agenda of making Barbie more approachable.
See the comments on our Barbie Youtube video for yourself.
It’s not clear what the fans are really missing but maybe if Barbie can be anyone then Barbie isn’t something to look up to and strive for anymore. Or maybe it’s something more simple like poor quality storytelling?
One thing is clear, Barbie fans are passionate and cherish their Barbie childhood memories and hope to pass them on.
