In Barbie & The Diamond Castle, Barbie and Teresa tell the fairy tale story of two best friends who share everything including their love for music.

One day their simple lives change when they are given an enchanted mirror and befriend the girl trapped inside. To save their new friend, Liana and Alexa embark on a dangerous journey to the hidden Diamond Castle that will put their friendship to test. But through the power of songs and with the companionship of two adorable puppies, the girls face their challenges together and learn that friendship is the true treasure.
Barbie Thumbelina presents the story of Thumbelina. In this movie, Thumbelina and her friends have their patch of wildflowers uprooted and are transported to a lavish apartment in the city. When the magical world of the Twillerbees is threatened, Thumbelina sets out to prove that even the smallest person can make a big difference.

Barbie in A Christmas Carol is a story filled with Christmas carols. The tale stars Barbie as Eden Starling, the glamorous singing diva of a theatre in Victorian London. Along with her snooty cat, Chuzzlewit, Eden selfishly plans to make all the theatre performers stay and rehearse on Christmas Day.

Not even Eden‘s costume designer and childhood friend, Catherine can talk Eden out of her self-centered tantrum. It‘s up to three very unusual Christmas Spirits to take Eden on a fantastical holiday journey that will open her heart to the spirit of the season and the joy of giving.

Barbie and The Island Princess is a full-length, original musical featuring nine fantastic new songs. After being shipwrecked on an island as a little girl, Rosella (Barbie) grows up learning to talk and sing with a family of loving animals: the red panda Sagi, the peacock Azul and the baby elephant Tika.

Barbie Mariposa is a butterfly fairy who loves to read and dream about the world outside her home in the land of Flutterfield. Flutterfield is protected by the Queen‘s glimmering magical lights, but when the Queen is poisoned by the evil fairy Henna, the special lights begin to go out one by one. It‘s up to the brave Mariposa and her friends to journey beyond the safe borders of the city in search of a hidden antidote that will save the Queen.
