Overview

When Barbie and her eleven royal sisters discover a world where their wishes can really come true, their enchanting adventures help them to appreciate the importance of family in this magical adventure featuring everyone's favorite fair-haired princess. Barbie is Princess Genevieve. Along with her eleven sisters, Princess Genevieve has just found a gateway to a land where the boundaries of fun are only limited by ones imagination. Back in the real world, however, their father's kingdom is in great danger. Now, in order to help their father and ensure that the family stays together, Princess Genevieve and her sisters must join forces and rely on the strength of their family bond to help them get through these trying times.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Princess Genevieve (Barbie) and her 11 rambunctious sisters are "hardly proper princesses." Their widowed father, King Randolph, calls them "the wild bunch," so he summons his cousin, Rowena (the voice of comic royalty. Catherine O'Hara) to teach them etiquette. She has something more sinister in mind. It's Footloose in a fairy-tale setting, as Rowena forbids the girls to dance and sing. But the girls get to cut loose when they discover a portal to a magic world where they can dance to their hearts' delight. But they must get their feet back on the ground and harness "the power of 12" to foil Rowena's plot to take over the kingdom. There is plenty of magic here to enchant young, starry-eyed Barbie fans and aspiring dancers. There is a chaste romance for Barbie and the humble but brave royal cobbler. Three talking animals -- a plucky cat, a wisecracking parrot, and Rowena's pet monkey -- supply the comic relief. The CGI animation is pure eye candy: As in previous Barbie DVD productions, each character has an otherworldly porcelain sheen. Felix Mendelssohn themes inform the orchestral soundtrack, and New York City Ballet honcho Peter Martins provided the choreography.
