Filled with fantastic songs, fabulous fashions, and fun new friends, it's an exciting musical celebration that shows the best thing you can be is yourself. Written by DVD Cover

Great movie!
13 September 2020 | by brookenichole-98054See all my reviews

Even though they had already done this concept before, they rocked it once again. It's different from many other Barbie movies and shows a great friendship. The voice acting is terrific and the songs are catchy. The story never feels dull and the idea with the magic hairbrush and microphone was perfect. Overall, it's a great movie!
