Did You Know?


The video games that inspired various segments and scenes and styles in the film include Minecraft, which dominates much of the film's second half, with characters walking around in the shape of pixelated blocks. The game Barbie is building and testing in the film's first minutes looks resemble the Little Big Planet series. "Level One," which features things like a dunk tank and whack-a-mole in the shadow of a carnival atmosphere in a 3D world that also contains power-ups is reminiscent of Nintendo Land meets a 3D Mario game. Level two features characters depicted as being paper-flat, much like Paper Mario. An on-foot and on-track racing level is included, which, slightly more off-the-beaten-path of popular games, is like a similar part of the Monsters vs. Aliens video game adaptation, though it otherwise has the basic set-up and feel of a more traditional family-style racer, like a Mario Kart or the dedicated races in Skylanders Superchargers.

Coming from an avid barbie movie fan I didn't think I would enjoy this movie at all. The corny animation and the emoji virus concept didn't seem right to me.

But when I finally got down to watching this, I actually enjoyed this. I missed the days when Barbie was just a princess and had a prince charming ya know? But the movie actually had me laughing so much! The characters were so funny and I thought it was cool how Barbie could code.

Also If any of the Barbie creators are reading this KEEP MAKING MORE BARBIE MOVIES!!! I absolutely adore them. Coming from a 17 year old, keep doing what you do. :)
