Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses - Toe Tapping Team
Barbie stars as Princess Genevieve in her latest movie - a tale of 12 princess sisters who love to dance and sing. But one day, the King realizes that his daughters have been lacking a female influence and so he invites his distant cousin to move into the castle and teach the princesses proper manners. Of course, Duchess Rowena, the King's cousin, has her eye on more than teaching the girls proper table ettiquette. She wants the crown for herself!
Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses - The Sound of Silence
Duchess Rowena quickly sets to breaking down the princesses' spirits - and the King's health. She craftily hides her meanness behind a veil of faux-concern whenever the King's around, but she pulls out the serious nasty when dealing with the girls. She orders them to stop singing, dancing and wearing anything at all colorful. What Rowena doesn't know however, is that the girls have discovered a secret world of magic and they've been escaping to it each night. There, they dance up a storm and get the chance to enjoy each other's company. But can the fun last forever?
Barbie the 12 Dancing Princesses - DVD Features
The Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses DVD comes with a music video for the featured song in the movie, an interactive ballet game and a gallery of various movie trailers. The ballet game is mostly memorization, but if you have a bit of a dance background you'll probably find it quite easy.
Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses - Bottom Line
Princess Genevieve is definitely the most assertive of the princesses so it's no surprise that she's the first to catch on to Duchess Rowena's evil plans. But will she be able to stop her? Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses is fairly predictable, but it will definitely appeal to a younger audience. If you like dancing and romantic fairy tales, this is a quick flick to watch on a rainy day.
