We have already sung the praises of the Barbie films as part of this club in our review of Barbie as Rapunzel. Well, this weekend we are talking about quite possibly the best of the Barbie films: Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper.
In this film, we get 2 lead characters with a blonde princess Anneliese and a brunette pauper named Erika. As the traditional story of The Prince and the Pauper goes, Anneliese wants freedom from the confines of her castle and Erika wants freedom from indentured servitude, to a woman who is making her sew dresses when she truly wants to be a singer. The two women meet and, eventually, switch places causing all kinds of shenanigans to occur.
The biggest stand-out of Barbie as Princess and the Pauper is the music. It definitely has some of the best songs and singing talent in all of the Barbie films. Also the 2 lead characters are pretty well-developed with heart and conflict that isn’t easily solved. If you give it a shot, you will enjoy it more than you think. So, find Barbie as Princess and the Pauper this weekend and we will talk about it fully on Monday with the complete review!
