MelodyLaurel said about Barbie Movies
Okay, at this point I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about the future of the Barbie movies, especially considering that Mattel seems to have quietly retired Ever After High after an extended period of time with no new content. If it's true that they're employing the same tactic with Barbie, letting the movies quietly die out without ever officially announcing their discontinuation, then it'd really be the end of an era, and I have to say I'm heartbroken.

It's also particularly disappointing because I was under the impression that the 'Raise Our Voices' campaign with Rock'n Royals signified Mattel's renewed commitment to the movies, but here we are, two years later, with radio silence on Mattel's end. When was the last time we got to freak out and analyze a teaser trailer that comes with a new DVD? I miss that feeling. I miss this fandom. I miss the good old days. 4 months ago

I don't think that's what happening at all. It's just that Mattel is doing two animated series now. Both are created by the same studios that produce Barbie movies, so they are focusing on them now and simply don't have time to make new movies. If any new movie will be announced, it will be probably connected to Dreamhouse Adventures, just like Dolphin Magic. And all the Barbie merch etc. focus now mainly on Dreamtopia, because this is the biggest success for Barbie franchise since years. Also, Ever After High was quietly retired due to the production problems, not lack of popularity. That's why it was replaced by super similar Enchantimals. I'm sure we will have another Barbie movie, but perhaps when all 26 episodes of Dreamhouse Adventures will already air? 4 months ago

I'm also... less than enthusiastic about the possibility of every subsequent Barbie 'movie' being somehow tied to Dreamhouse Adventures or Dreamtopia. I've always defended the movies from criticism that say they're getting more and more uncreative, but that would definitely be the final straw for me. 4 months ago
