Barbie: The Pearl Princess Comes To Shore in March


barbie

I’ve always had a soft spot for these movies. You’d think the overabundance of pink, lacy gowns and talking animals would send me over the edge, but I keep coming back for more. It’s a guilty pleasure that doesn’t come up in normal conversation, and one that I can’t shake even after finding out that this is her 27th CGI-animated talkie.

Barbie: The Pearl Princess is the latest movie/merchandise fusion to come from Mattel. The plan is to release it on March 11, 2014 as a Combo Pack that includes Blu Ray, DVD, and digital HD. Digital HD allows you to download a digital version of the movie and watch it on a tablet or other device.

Barbie stars as Lumina, a mermaid who dreams of being a princess. As long as she can remember, she’s had a magical power that makes pearls dance and glow! Lumina, and her best friend Kuda, a pink seahorse, embark on an adventure to a majestic mer-kingdom.

There, she uses her powers to help her friends prepare for the Royal Ball. Lumina then discovers that her magical pearls are the key to unlocking her true destiny and ultimately saving the kingdom.

The Barbie movies may not be Pixar, but if you need something bearable to watch with your three-year-old cousin, you could do worse.
