Found this on Flickr. Here's the link:

(The poster was not impressed, as you can probably tell.)

The summary, for now, is as follows:
"Barbie takes on a big challenge in her new movie—she plays two roles! In one, she’s a princess who feels bored and stifled by her very regimented life. In the other, she’s a rock star who is weary of touring, press junkets, and performances. When the girls decide to switch roles, they get a taste of how the other lives. Filled with memorable songs, this is sure to be a hit with Barbie fans!"

I... I don't know what to say.

Oh why does this seem so familiar to me? Or am I just having a déjà vu?

Well, I don't know. I mean, a musical involving a princess swapping lives with a non-princess because she feels trapped; never heard of that before... /sarcasm.

What are you confused about? Can I help?

Also, on a completely unrelated note, what's supposed to be interesting about being bored with touring and performances?

Lena_T - I understand. I don't know why they're doing it, either.

Purie (can I still call you that?) - Since we haven't actually seen the movie, my complaints were directed towards the idea, and for the reasons you've already mentioned. I can't see anything relatable about this at all. Maybe if it was an ordinary girl (well, as ordinary as Barbie gets) swapping places with a pop star, it might not be so bad..

This is not good. From MT2 I've had a feeling Mattel are running out of ideas and now they're either making sequels or ripping off old movies and then modernize them. Girls, things are going downhill for us now. Where are the glorious days?

Funny enough, there's this cartoon with the same name (minus the Barbie part) and it has pretty much the same plot. Oh and guess what? It's based on Mark Twain's Princess and The Pauper and is a musical as well. I kind of have the desire to protest or start a petition now.

^It was from Veggie Tales, right? Then, I saw it. And I LOL'd at Vanna Banana.
It's based on Mark Twain's story, again?!
I think I have the same desire. After the desire to kill all the people who make it.

Yup, I'm talking about Veggie Tales. I didn't watch the movie but I read a review about it and it mentions Mark Twain.
I'd loved to go all the way to Carlifornia and protest in front of Mattel's offices.

Can I come with you? Please?

Oh, and while we're on the subject of petitions, have Mattel somehow failed to ignore that "Bring Back Kelly Sheridan" petition which has over a thousand signatures now? I thought she said fans were making their voices heard and Mattel were reconsidering because of it. Well, we've had no sign of KMS, and it looks like they missed all the demands for the return of the fairytales. And no, Mattel, taking the plot from one of your most popular princess movies and making it as glamorous and sparkly as possible does not equal "fairytale".

What happened with PCS? Was that some kind of fluke?

(oh, and if we're on the subject of violent thoughts, I have a strong desire to find the person responsible for this "new direction of BMs and whack them over the head with a large book. Not proud of it, but it's there.)

I will be with you, without questions!

Well, I heard somewhere, that KMS herself didn't want to return. She has new roles now, you know. But they ignored it, they really did. I'm silent about giving to us a proper dolls of Major and Captain.
Oh really: pink+ sparkles+ cool= current BMs. No fairytale at all, though they have fairies/ mermaids/ princesses.

(Please, Miss Major, hit him/her with a big book of children' names! Or, with a book of our fanfictions)

The 'Bring Back Kelly Sheridan' petition has 1528 signatures at the moment. The number keeps on increasing rapidly though. The person who created the petition said that she will re-send it to Mattel once the petition hits 1500 signatures. She said that she lost hope though..

Oh my gosh!!!! "Barbie has a hard role this time" Idiots, she's done it before! ARGHH! This is ridiculous. Princess movies? What princess movies? Anything pre-fab and pre-2008 they've forgotten and chucked in the trash.

I really don't know. She came back for MT2, but I don't know if that means she's back in the role or not.
