Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper

Synopsis: In her first animated musical featuring seven original songs, Barbie comes to life in this modern re-telling of a classic tale of mistaken identity and the power of friendship. Based on the story by Mark Twain, Barbie as The Princess and The Pauper features Barbie in an exciting dual role as a princess and a poor village girl - two girls who look amazingly alike. The girls' paths are fated to cross when Princess Anneliese is captured and Erika, her look-alike, must try to save her. Can Erika pretend to be the Princess and foil her captor, the evil Preminger? And what of the handsome King Dominick, who falls in love with Erika, mistaking her for Princess Anneliese? In this magical musical performance, two beautiful, adventurous girls dare to follow their dreams and discover that destiny is written in a very special place: your heart.

- Is this shiny?

- No.

- Valuable?

- No.

- Gonna make the boss happy?

- No.

Focus, Nick.

That's what you need. That and

a break.


Why, hello.

Master Preminger, you're

back... here... early.

Hope you had a nice journey.

Here you are, sir. The last of

the gold from the Royal Mine.

- There's nothing left.

- Yeah, 'cos it's all yours!

Yes, it is, very much mine.


I've been bowing, I've been scraping,

I've been lying like a rug

And for 10 long years I've

had to pay my dues.

But today I am escaping,

for the last hole has been dug

It was waiting there,

so how could I refuse?

I'm returning home a hero

who's discovered mighty wealth

and what better husband

could a Princess choose?

I'm the suitor who will suit her, bring

the Kingdom back to health,

and I'll wear the crown,

for how could I refuse?

Raise every glass

and rouse every cheer!

Praise that the reign

of Preminger is here!

Master in charge of all that I see

All hail me!

And by marrying the Princess

I get all that I desire,

Like a moat, an ermine

coat and palace views

Even though she treats me coldly,

it's a sign of inner fire

For inside she's thinking,

"How can I refuse?"

Right, except for

this one little problem, Boss.

- That's Prince Boss to you!

- Right, and

The Queen decided to marry her off

to the King of Dulcenia next week.


Making a decision without me?

Who does she think she is?

Uh, the Queen?

- You simpering simpleton!

- Well, she is the Queen!

She's got a crown, a scepter, and

sits in her great big fancy chair...

- and those...

- Silencio!

No! I won't let go!

This peasant's son won't turn and run

because the reckless royal chose another beau!


It's... a...

Temporary setback!

It's a momentary loss

But conveniently my ego doesn't bruise
