Intent on spending Christmas Eve at home rather than going to the hospital's annual charity ball, Barbie's little sister, Kelly, dreams of eating cookies and drinking cocoa in front of her fireplace. Much like Charles Dickens' timeless festive tale depicted in A Christmas Carol (1951), to convince her, Barbie recounts the story of the famous Victorian singer, Eden Starling, who demands that her crew cancel their Christmas plans, to rehearse her upcoming show. Will the night-time visitations by the Spirits of Christmases Past, Present, and Future help Eden change her mind? Written by Nick Riganas

Barbie Christmas carol review
1 May 2020 | by maddiebuggieSee all my reviews

I have always loved the story of Christmas carol. I watched many version over the year. It wasn't until 2019 I got around the watching this version of the beloved story. The animation was of course great. I thought the story and plot was average. I did like that this version has a female as the leader I unlike most version who have a male. That made it difference besides the fact Barbie was telling the story. I loved all the characters, character development that was in this story. I liked that the main character owned a theater kind of business. She was just the right amount of I hate the world at the beginning and I changed and love the world by the end of the movie. All of the ghost In this movie were female too. I liked everything that the Barbie in a Christmas carol. I would never said this is the best version that been made of this story but this is a good version to watch nonetheless. Really good Christmas movie for kids to watch.
