Storyline

In a modern retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale, Thumbelina (1994), Barbie recounts the exciting story of the tiny forest-sprite and her new best friend: the Twillerbee, Thumbelina. Living in total harmony with nature, the minuscule race of charismatic creatures has the extraordinary power to make plants and flowers grow; however, Thumbelina will see her world turn upside down when the spoiled girl, Makena, uproots her favourite spot of wild-flowers, on a whim. Now, a big construction company threatens to destroy the enchanted land of the harmless Twillerbees. Can the teeny-tiny Thumbelina save her beloved home? Written by Nick Riganas

Barbie is a teacher and going Green (spoiler alert!)
5 April 2009 | by istvanszSee all my reviews

Barbie is a teacher and going Green (spoiler alert!),

This is the latest title in my 5 years old daughter movie collection. She loved the movie. The animation is not like in a Disney or Pixar movie, but it is much improved from the previous Barbie movies. She liked the idea that Barbie is a teacher and liked the theme of protecting the environment. She is all into it and I think that is a much better role model for small girls (unfortunatelly, I think that boys will skip this movie).

Summary: it is introduced a new species of magical creatures: the Twillerbees, hidden among the wildflowers, threatened to be destroyed by new construction developments. The bravest of them is Thumbelina, who will have the help of a young girl named Makena. Everything is narrated to young kids by Barbie, who is a teacher.

Thanks
