Barbie: Big City, Big Dreams Trailer
Barbie Roberts is saying goodbye to the familiar beaches of Malibu. (For now. We’re sure she’ll be finding her way back to her convertible and the California coast soon enough.) She’s been enrolled in a prestigious
and highly competitive summer program at the Handler School for Performing Arts where she can pursue her dreams.
(FUN FACT: The school name comes from Ruth Handler, the woman who created Barbie based on the Bild Lili doll.)
As soon as Barbie arrives she makes friends with another student… named Barbie Roberts! That’s right; Barbie meets Barbie. Unlike the story in Barbie Princess Adventure, these two girls don’t look alike, but they do have much more in common than just their names. The biggest one? Their shared dream of making it on Broadway.
The two get the nicknames you’d expect. The new girl to our story is Barbie “Brooklyn” Roberts, a fearless, smart, and loyal friend. A New York native with an exuberant and infectious personality, she is a classically trained triple-threat singer, dancer, and musician who is confident and optimistic. Barbie “Malibu” Roberts is self-taught, highlighting that there is more than one way to succeed, as long as you bring your best and share it with the world.
However, not everything is as easy as it seems. The two Barbies find themselves competing for the program’s coveted, once-in-a-lifetime Spotlight Solo. It will become a test of talent, friendship, and finding out there’s more to life than winning.
To celebrate the experience, Barbie just released this video on her hugely popular (more than 10 million subscribers) VLOG. As Barbie says on the page, “My very first vlog from my dorm room where I’m studying at the Handler School of Performing Arts in New York City wouldn’t be complete without the intro of my amazing new friend – Barbie Roberts! What are the odds? TWO Barbies at the same school with the same name! I can’t wait!”
Check it out.
