Barbie stars in this magical adventure as Tori, the princess of Meribella, who loves to sing and dance. When her idol, pop singer Keira, passes through the kingdom, the girls quickly discover that they can magically trade places with each other. Although they both have fun at first, each girl soon realises that living in someone else's shoes isn't so easy after all!
I ordered the DVD on 17th December and recieved it on 19th, My Granddaughter will be thrilled (Christmas) I purchased this DVD based on I have had others from amazon, the service is second to none. I will be purchasing more of Barbie's, as they are very popular with all my Granddaughter's. I have come to expect the excellent service given by amazon, i.e. turnaround, packaging, and clear ease of use.
Princess and Pop Star is yet another great Barbie movie. We have all the Barbie movies, and despite my children getting older (11 and 7) they both still enjoy every movie. I am delighted that they like these movies, as they are always good for teaching morals and values in a non preachy fashion. The characters are always happy and well behaved, without the movie being boring. There are always catchy songs and happy endings. What more could you ask for? Better than all the Disney TV series & movies they all also like, as there is no pressure within these Barbie movies to grow up. They are fantasy and great in allowing kids to stay kids a little longer, and to use their imagination to believe and dream.
This was the latest of the Barbie dvds we bought for our 4.5 yr old daughter. It didn't disappoint her, as she's now singing the songs and loves to re-watch the film. From a parent perspective I noticed that they re-used one of the tunes from Princess and the Pauper (just put new words to it) and also used the 1980's Cindi Lauper song Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, but hey it works!! All good for little Barbie fans.
Barbie films rock! I buy them for my two young daughters, aged 4 and 6, and all three of us just love them. They are total escapism, and are amusing and fun. What's more, unlike the Barbie dolls, the films provide great roll models for young girls, with the heroine being feisty and savvy. Some Barbie films are better than others, but the Princess and The Popstar is amongst the best. It is a fabulous, heart warming film.
Other Barbie films I recommend are A Fairy Secret, Mermaid Tale 1 and 2, Princess Charm School, Barbie and the Musketeers, and a Pony Tale - all awesome films!
I must confess I was super excited about this DVD. Every previous Barbie Musical has been top notch and Barbie Princess and the Pauper just happens to be my absolute favourite! So I'm really pleased to report that this modern remake turned out to be everything I was hoping for. All new story, plenty of girly pop songs, (watch out for a new version of a classic from the original) loads of beautiful outfits and all round Barbie cuteness.
EDIT: Having seen this about 4 times now (and loving every minute) it's rapidly becoming my number one Barbie DVD! I just love it so much!!!
My daughter repeatedly asked for this before Christmas and I reluctantly purchased it along with the dolls from the movie. She loves the movie, it's her favourite and she sits with her dolls singing along. Movie purchased at an excellent price and well worth the money. Delivery quick.
