Did You Know?


Production of the dance sequences was actually quite a pain-staking process, as it was all choreographed and filmed in live-action format first, then animated over to match the cartoon environment that it's set in. See more »


At (1:19:32) when Rothbart plans on turning Derek into a animal by using his magic, Derek dodges it and the magic hits Odile which turns her into a pig.

But when Ruthbart uses it on other people it takes about 30 seconds for the transformation to be complete, but for Odile it takes only 3 seconds. See more »

Barbie: What's wrong, Kelly?
Kelly: [sighs] I can't sleep. The bed's all bumpy.
Barbie: I remember my first sleep-away camp. It takes a day or two to get used to things.
Kelly: I'll never get used to it.
Barbie: But you were looking forward to race day tomorrow. You're part of the team.
Kelly: Somebody else can run for me.
Barbie: It wouldn't be the same without you. We'd really miss you.

26 November 2004 | by lacers7See all my reviews

This animated film shows not only the incredible use computer graphics but the beauty of dance as well. I have one of the many little girls who have been inspired to the call of ballet after watching this creation. The overall story has it's short comings, but to take a popular toy and turn it into an inspiration of dance is truly wonderful. Anything that can motivate a child to reach high into the dream clouds of hope will get my vote. My kids would like to see them do the story of rumplestilskin and the spinning wheel that spins gold.

Little girls will love the beauty, little boys with like the drama and heroics, the parents will praise the pure G rating and content. Great Work.
