Barbie is iconic. Whether as a fashion model, NASA astronaut, fast food worker, or riding her convertible off the California coast, Barbie has gone on countless adventures with kids and adults for more than 60 years. Now she’s heading to Netflix in the new animated musical film Barbie Princess Adventure — and Parentology has secured the exclusive extended trailer.
“[Barbie] inspires the limitless potential in all kids, and this brand purpose resonates deeply with children and parents alike,” notes Adam Bonnett, Executive Producer for Mattel Television which created the animated movie, which will air on Netflix in the US. “Barbie Princess Adventure builds on that purpose with a focus on empowerment, self-discovery, and finding your voice in the age of social media.”
This is the first standalone Barbie film since 2017, and it’s filled with dance and sing-along pop songs young fans (and fans of Barbie and the Rockers) will love. In fact, the song clips Mattel has released on YouTube have collectively racked up more than a million views already — and we’ve posted them below the trailer to check out.
Barbie Princess Adventure: The Story
After being selected by their school, Barbie and her friends travel to the country of Floravia to meet Princess Amelia, who bears a striking resemblance to Barbie. Princess Amelia, nervous about becoming queen, is looking for an escape and devises a plan to switch places with Barbie. Their secret is safe until a devious rival prince discovers the truth, and Barbie and her friends must team up to stop him and rescue the princess in time for her coronation.
Watch the extended trailer to Barbie Princess Adventure below, then tune in to Netflix to see the whole musical movie, streaming September 1, 2020. The film’s soundtrack will be available across all digital streaming platforms beginning on August 28, 2020.
