One of my favourite Barbie films
on 17 January 2017
One of my favourites from the Barbie collection.
Mariposa is a butterfly fairy. It links up with the Barbie Fairytopia series the last story being Barbie Mariposa. This story carries on from Barbie Mariposa but don't worry if you have not seen that as this film starts of with a recap of the events from the last film but they do it in a beautiful story book way.
This story has Mariposa still getting use to how her life has changed but now she is the Royal Librarian, her dream job. She is called in front of the Queen and the Prince and the Lord to find out what she knew about crystal fairies.
They have received an invitation from the Crystal Fairy King for an ambassador to go to the Crystal Fairy kingdom. There was a falling out between Crystal and Butterfly fairies. Each have silly legends about each other but very little interaction with each other since the fall out.
Mariposa does not want to go. She feels she is not the right person but the prince talks her into it.
When she gets there she finds everyone scared of her and that the King seems to lose his patience with her more than once. In the end the Princess and Mariposa become friends but a mistake sees Mariposa going home just at the wrong time.
A threat comes to the crystal fairies and Mariposa and the Princess find new depths in order to help conquer the trouble.
A light film, even the villain is not threatening. This will suit most age groups in children. The art and the voice talents that make the film are extremely good and the details make the film an enjoyable watch for anyone.
