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 the prince and rescue the princess in time for her coronation.
“Barbie is an iconic character who provides endless storytelling opportunities,” commented Mattel Television executive producer, Adam Bonnett. “She inspires the limitless potential in all kids, and this brand purpose resonates deeply with children and parents alike. 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 modern fairytale delivers the message of staying true to one’s self, building on Barbie’s broader brand purpose to inspire the limitless potential in every child. It complements additional Barbie content currently available including Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures (also available on Netflix in the U.S.) and Barbie Vlogger (available on YouTube).
Barbie Princess Adventure captures a range of musical genres which enables the audience to connect with the story in a variety of ways,” added Bonnett. “Original music will continue to be an integral part of Mattel Television content moving forward – for Barbie as well as other brands.”
