Barbie In The Nutcracker
The Very First Feature-Length Movie Starring Barbie®

Barbie magically comes to life through stunning computer animation in this modern adaptation of the E.T.A. Hoffman classic. The tale begins when Barbie®, playing the role of Clara, receives a beautiful wooden Nutcracker as a gift from her favorite Aunt. That night, while Clara sleeps, the Nutcracker springs to life to ward off the evil Mouse King who has invaded Clara's parlor. She awakes and aids the Nutcracker, but the Mouse King shrinks her by casting an evil spell. Clara and the Nutcracker set off on a spectacular adventure to find the Sugarplum Princess, the only one who can break the Mouse King's evil enchantment.

The tale is enhanced with spectacular dance scenes created by the acclaimed choreographer Peter Martins, and features the beloved music by Tchaikovsky. The real-life movements of dancers from the New York City Ballet bring the beauty of ballet to the screen in a way never seen before.

Barbie: In The Nutcracker shows that, if you are kind, clever and brave, anything is possible…

Barbie of Swan Lake
Barbie magically comes to life in her third animated movie, Barbie of Swan Lake. Based on the brilliant music of Tchaikovsky and the beloved fairy tale, the movie stars Barbie as Odette, the young baker's daughter who follows a unicorn into the Enchanted Forest. The evil wizard, Rothbart - intent on defeating his cousin the Fairy Queen and taking over the Forest, transforms Odette into a swan. The Fairy Queen counters the spell leaving Odette human by night but a swan by day. Odette learns that, even though she feels she is the wrong person for the task, it is her destiny to save the Enchanted Forest from Rothbart. But how can a young blonde - armed with only her courage, honesty and intelligence - accomplish this, all while the handsome Prince Spaniel is falling in love with her?

Barbie of Swan Lake combines fantasy, ballet and Tchaikovsky's unforgettable music as performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. Peter Martins, Ballet Master-in-Chief of the New York City Ballet, choreographs the wondrous dance scenes of this spectacular ballet in a way never experienced before.

Barbie of Swan Lake shows that each of us is braver than we think.
