- Wonderful movie, terrible 3-D!!
As far as the acting is concerned, this is a terrific Barbie movie, one of the better ones by far, but the 3-D effects leave much to be desired. I was very disappointed when we donned our glasses, only to have a very blurry visual with terrible discoloration. Moreover, the glasses were far from comfortable, but then again, they were probably made for much smaller faces!
Nevertheless, I loved the storyline -- a beautiful princess who is not only courageous, but never gives up hope in her quest to save her parents and her kingdom from certain destruction. To succeed she must secure three rare objects (not tangible) within 36 hours. Hope" is the central theme in this movie -- that one should never give up on it, and should always expect succeed with even the "teeniest" amount of it no matter what circumstances come their way. It's a very positive message for young (and perhaps not so young) audiences.

- Don't forget the MESSAGE!
First of all, if you're excited about the 3D effects, don't be. They're few and far between, and frankly, they're downright irritating. Put the 3D glasses back in the box, and put on a helmet, because the moral of the story will be pummeled into your head with Aidan's blacksmith hammer over the next hour or so.
Barbie as Princess Annika, voiced by Kelly Sheridan (as she should be!), seems to be an unlikely disciple of the "YES WE CAN NO MATTER WHAT!"philosophy. She sneaks out of the palace and gives her parents an attitude about being kept there all the time. She says it's not fair, they're ruining her life, et cetera... to be honest this is probably the most realistic Barbie character in any of the movies I've seen. When the quest gets going, she abruptly stops being a spoiled brat and becomes the Tony Robbins of children's video with a relentless touch of the Borg from Star Trek to give it that added annoyance factor. I think I preferred the brat to the unflinching, never ending MESSAGE.
Brietta, Barbie's sister turned into a flying horse, is the complete opposite and just as irritating. She wallows in self pity and even when she's been shown that things are not hopeless, she just mopes and whines. All the Barbie movies seem to be this way-- Polly Perfect must teach Negative Nancy some valuable life lessons. I'm sure it's done to make the movie easier for the kids to understand, but when the characters are so extreme, even the kids get tired of it. It would be nice to see two average characters with different strengths teaching each other for once.
Ken as Aidan is a bit of a darker character than the men in other Barbie movies, and I kind of like him. He gambled away his parents' money and now he's trying to set things right. If you have a problem with Ken playing poker, I think the important thing to remember is that he regrets what he did, and there were no positive consequences to it. It's also nice that they don't beat you over the head with it, but of course they were too busy doing that with the "CAN DO YAHOO!!!" stuff. If there had been text flashing on the screen that said "Here's the MESSAGE! Don't forget the MESSAGE!" it would have been less subtle.
Wenlock can be downright scary for kids at times, and the polygamy issue could have been avoided without hurting the story at all. I have to wonder if anyone making these movies stops to think about these things first. Even if a kid is familiar with Bible stories where polygamy plays an integral part, it's usually glossed over in children's versions. I don't want to be ambushed with something like this and have to explain it to a young child. These women could have been presented as badly treated servants without affecting the plot or bringing in the multiple marriage issue. Even more disturbing, after they're free, the wives are shown floating off into the sunset with Wenlock, implying that they are staying with an abuser, and that their forced marriages were permanent.
With no songs to temper the mood, and the only bright light at the cloud castle, the look and feel of the movie is very dark. The real comic relief comes at the end of the movie with the "outtakes" that play during the credits. Mattel (or whoever they pay to make these things) missed the mark on this one by going to too many extremes in too many areas. It's not a horrible movie, but it's made worse by the fact that it could have been really good had the various elements been handled properly. The producers would benefit from someone hammering "NO YOU CAN'T!" into THEIR heads a little and learning a lesson of their own. ...more info

- I love it!
Please vote on my review.Hi,I'm 'BARBIE LOVER'and I'm reviewing 'Barbie and the magic of Pegasus'.this movie is so cute!-SPOILER!- Barbie(annika)'s gone ice-skating again,and her parents are worried sick about her,so they forbid her to ice-skate, saying that ''It's for your own good''.But she goes out ice-skating anyway.But then Wenlock comes and asks her to marry him,and Annika says no,so Wenlock turns everybody(including Annika's parents)into frozen statues.so Annika flies to cloud kingdom with the Pegasus(winged horse)Brietta,and the polar bear cub,Shiver.It's very interesting -to me- to see breitta's past,when she was a human.Annika meets Rayla the Cloud Queen,who tells her to make a wand of light to defeat Wenlock.She goes to a variety of places like the Forbidden Forest,an ice cavern and finally Wenlock's Palace,where she defeats the bad guy and marries handsome young man(which,btw is Aiden in this movie) happy ending like every barbie movie has been.Pretty nice pegasuses in the movie,I love the Kelly cloud princesses! 3d ok,I like the 2d version a little better -there is an option of 2d or 3d before you play the movie-,but there is this scene in the movie when Aidan is battaling a griffin,that was scary and sad when the griffin pushed aidan over the cliff :0 .But it was cool when Annika made the wand of light break the spell over Breitta and when she went ice-skating and found shiver,that was cool too.This movie has sad and scary parts,but also pretty and beautiful scenes too. I sooo love this princess fantasy movie! Great Movie! 'BARBIE LOVER' Ps I got the Barbie magic of pegasus PC game and its great too. ...more info
- Wonderful movie even if your not a Barbie fan
Great movie! Good for all ages my 2 year old & 11 year old daughters can't get enough of it. And to be quite honest I like it too.
Nice to see a family movie that didn't throw in bad words or gestures to be funny or for rating change....more info
- So disappointed
I bought the game for my granddaughter who loves any Barbie video game. Even with my help, we never got out of the castle. You can only move with the arrow keys and compared to the rest of the Barbie games she has, this is a total waste of her time and my money.
Disgruntled grandmother...more info
- Barbie is so much better than when I was a kid
I've never been a big Barbie fan, and was a little disappointed when my 5 year old became one. However, after watching this movie with her, I'm impressed.
Although still way too skinny for my taste, Barbie is a bright, strong, brave female character and - dare I say - a good role model?
The movie itself is cute. I could blow holes in the plot line, but it's a kids fantasy and a great story. I highly recommend it....more info
- Much better than Barbie in the Princess and the Pauper
My little girl is not a big Barbie fan, but she loves this movie. She is 4 and is horse-crazy right now. She has watched this movie over and over again. She watched Princess and the Pauper once.
This movie is worth the money. It comes with 3-D glasses, but watching the show in 3-D is optional.
This is a great movie for a young girl who loves horses, likes to dream, and reinforces the idea that girls can be strong, competant heroines....more info
- JUST AS SWAN LAKE(BORING AND STUPID)
I SAW THE WHOLE MOVIE.IT WAS STUPID AND SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BORING.I HOPE THE NEXT MOVIE(THE BARBIE DIARIES)WILL BE BETTER THEN THIS CREEPY MOVIE.BY THE WAY THE MUSIC STINKS.REEEEEEEALY STINKS.
I AM A MY SCENE LOVER AND A BRATZ LOVER*FOREVER*
I AM NOT A BARBIE FAN LONGER RIGHT NOW....more info
- GREAT SHOWS
ALL GIRLS WILL LOVE THESE MY GRAND DAUGHTER IS 3 AND SHE LOVES IT
SHE WANTS TO BE A PRINCESS TO lol :)...more info
- Nice Story
My little girl love this movie. Nice story of love and adventure, not as complicated as Mermaidia and Fairytopiah. I tried using the 3-D glasses but of course it will only work on a real dark room....more info
- Another wonderful addition to the Barbie collection!
This is a lovely DVD movie (just forget about the 3-D aspect, it is unwatchably blurry and discolored). The story is interesting and the scenery is beautiful. I can't imagine what the reviewer below finds 'inappropriate' but my advice is to ignore that reviewer's incoherent babbling. We are conservative and careful in what we allow our child to watch. There is never anything inappropriate in any of the Barbie movies, they are always wholesome and not too scary, and filled with good values like courage, faith, teamwork, and self confidence. I won't say it the best of the Barbie movies (we have them all, we think Mermaidia is one of the best and our all-time favorite is Rapunzel!) but Pegasus is worthy addition to the fairytale collection and one that any Barbie-loving girl will enjoy....more info
- Watch it in a complete dark room and get better glasses.
I bought this DVD, because I love 3D shows. But you know it won't be same as the ones I have seen in the theaters. It is far from them. Maybe you have to watch in a dark room. The glasses don't stay right because they are paper and uncomfortable. Maybe you can find better glasses from stores or some where. They are even big for my 5 years old girl. Not all the scens are 3D. So you get to take your glasses off most of the times which gives you break. You have the option to watch it without 3D effects.
The movie itself is really nice and appropriate for any age. Actually adults will like it too.
But it was worth buying it....more info
- Come on guys it's a really good movie!
I love barbie and i was saddened with all these past bad reviews. One person said that barbie looked like Paris Hilton. It's common for barbie to look like female celebraties that have blond hair. There was also a review that Annika was too snobby. She was acting like that to escape from the giant. And does saving your people and your family count as being a snob.No. There was also a review that Wenlock was scary and not comical. Come on he's funny to me. These reviews are just misunderstandings. And one more thing. BARBIE IS NOT WEAK. SHE"S BRAVE AND FEISTY! any way thats my opionion....more info
- Does not live up to expectations
I have watched this movie with my 4 year old daughter only once and had a very bad experience. This movie will not be seen or shown again in my house, at least not for a few more years. Perhaps its creators tried to make the movie "more edgy," which is completely ununderstandable, as "edgy" is not something little girls want, and presumably they are the main audience for a Barbie movie. Those who are looking for gentle, beautiful princesses and polite knightly princes should not buy this movie. The characters are shallow and sometimes display a bad attitude. Their manners and style of conversation occasionally borders on bratty. The plot is rather forced. The "bad guy" is beyond bad and is way too scary. Only occasionally do we get to focus on the lovely colors and beautiful pictures for which we watch Barbie movies. I would highly recommend Barbie of Swan Lake and Barbie as Rapunzel instead. To sum up, this movie is just too much, too over the top for little girls. ...more info
- great movie
This was a fun, clean movie with great value lessons. It works for all ages, 2 and up!...more info
- Another great Barbie movie
The Barbie movie series is great. The story lines are wonderfully written, the characters are terrific, the animation is captivating, the music is fantastic and everyone in the family is willing to watch them... even the men! My kids have watched them all a thousand times over and (unlike a lot of other movies), I have yet to get sick of listening to them! ...more info
- For undemanding tots plus a word about 3D
Basically it's another run of the mill Barbie movie . Not awful but not good. I'm not a little girl. I'm a 3D enthusiast so I look at it from a different perspective. The effects for DVD are average and yes red and blue (anaglyph)3D can be disorientating when the film is in color.There's many things that can be done about that but it's up to the consumer to express a demand in quality 3D DVD.If you want good family 3D purchase the Ultimate Imax Collection.This electronic system works with flickering LCD lenses and produces a splendid out of the set 3D experience. The major set backs are that untill the demand for more is expressed the number of titles is limited and for the time being they only work on the tube sets and not plasma or HDTV. THis I hear is being corrected in the near future.Spy kids Game over is now available like this in a special edition and I can assure you the 3D is awesome and far superior to anaglyph. The other nice thing about getting this system is that if you go to Toy,Sci-fi and other conventions you can usually find foreign copies of Movies like HOUSE OF WAX(original) and IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE in this format.Under no circumstances get THE ULTIMATE HORROR COLLECTION IN 3D as these movies really suck and they are not kid friendly. There is one other form of 3D available called Pulfrich. It's featured on some kids videos. Basically it's paper glasses with one clear lens and one dark lens.The major problem with it is that it wont come out of the screen and it's kind of a rip because once you have the glasses you can keep them because this style of 3d works on any image moving from left to right. Ok, enough of the boring lecture. Go back to your dolls.
- A very good movie!
I wanted this movie for the longest time and i finally got it! i loved all the barbie movies and this one was one of the best ones!!!! i love annika and brietta but i dont really like shiver...anyways the movies rocks!
- Didn't watch all of it, but not happy with what I've seen.
Just wondering... since when did Barbie start to look like Paris Hilton? The package doesn't show any resemblance, but as I was watching a preview of this DVD... I couldn't miss the obvious similarities. If my daughter was still young enough for the Barbie DVD series, I'm sure she would have wanted to watch this one... but I would be concerned that such a treasured icon for young ladies is now being modeled after someone who should not be considered a role model....more info
I bought this product and paid over $10 for the delivery from the states. Unfortunately my DVD player was not able to play it because it was produced not for the UK region. I had to change some settings on my computer and when my daughter was watching it on the PC we had some difficulties with the sound...more info
- Poker and Polygamy?
This movie is awful!!! The heroin sneaks out against her parent's wishes then yells at them for being upset. Then she manages to get her parents and her townspeople turned into stone and saves a sister she didn't know she had all from being disobedient. This Barbie is snotty and mean, but somehow still gets the guy (who by the way, gambles his families life savings away and instead of repaying his parents runs away from home, sounds like a real winner to me!) and saves the day. To top it all off the villain has three wives that he has turned into ugly trolls and is now looking to marry again! I guess in today's world polygamy, gambling, and being disrespectful to your parents makes great entertainment for children!...more info
- Good quality, fast delivery
My DVD arrived in excellent condition, efficient delivery. Would do it again in a heartbeat....more info
- The Same Movie again...
Look! It's another Barbie princess movie, it's getting way old...Doesn't anyone think the same thing always happen???
The main character is always BLONDE, why can't we have a different race? Are we teaching girls to be BLONDE? Does this really inspire at all?
The main character always get the guy?? Where's the change?
It was so dull to see Barbie fighting the evil villian, I mean, it was so slow...
Why is there too much pink & purple? It's so sickening, not every girl likes those colors...
This movie wasn't worth to watch at all, it was the same thing over again, just different names and 50% different story...
Overall, it was beautiful, but this movie was another ALL-ABOUT-BLONDE-BARBIE again...
I hope their next movie will be about a different race & different hair color...If they did do that, they would sell more, not every girl likes the character BARBIE, not every girl likes to be BLONDE, likes the color PINK....and not every girl is WEAK as BARBIE...
GET THE MY SCENE MOVIES!! THEY ARE SO WAY BETTER and IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT BARBIE!...more info
The seller was prompt as the product arrived on time. It was in very good condition just as advertised. My daughter is very happy especially with the bonus DVD which came with the product. ...more info
- Barbie Classic
My family is a fan of the barbie movies and this was a great addition, though it is no Princess & the Pauper....more info
- BARBIE? AGAIN?
Fairytopia was going far, and this movie is going WAY too far.
I liked the first barbie movie. It was nice. But now I don't
tollerate it! Here's 5 facts why they shouldn't make this!
1. There is at least 5 movies about barbie without this one.
2. Bratz replaced barbie a year ago.
3. Griffin ( a creature or a bad guy ) is a name, too, mattel!
4. Barbie and Ken's " breaking up " is innappropiate.
5. It's the same dumb money scheme.
The only reason why this gets 2 stars is the 3-D feature....more info
- DO NOT BUY the 3D Version...less than 15 mins total 3D
I wish I came here first before allowing my 5 yr old daughter to save and buy this movie, we own the original (non 3D version) and she knew the 3D version was the same movie but was excited about the 3D aspect and the commercial rums every 15 mins here so she asked if she could get it.
We made a chore chart and started saving and mom and dad pitched in half, (at least we had some learning involved with the chore chart), finally got up the money to go buy the 3D version, got home turned off lights put on glasses even made popcorn, Mom Dad Daughter, then we realized Bibble pops on and says take glasses OFF after a few mins of intro 3D? 15 mins goes by no 3d then you are told put glasses ON again etc, overall this movie contains about 10-15 mins total of 3D and most of it NOT in parts you would even WANT to see 3D action...
Needless to say having already bought the first release, even knowing this would be the same movie but buying it for the 3D feature, it falls short bigtime due to the LACK of 3D in the movie.
Buy the original it's better, and it IS a good movie! Just having kids take off the 3D glasses 5+ times per showing (expecting them to hold them I guess?) for 15-20 mins at a time between the 2-3 min 3D segments is just asking for broken paper 3D glasses and leads to an overall DUD of a supposed 3D release....more info
For adults not such a great flick. For little girls, it is a wonderful lesson. ...more info
- This is the best movie i have EVER saw in my WHOLE life!!!!!
First of all, i would like to say that this movie is really great.It has a little bit of connections with fantasis that girl and barbie fans will like.This movie has challenges and exciting parts, which makes us want to watch more of it.....Annika, the main character soon found out the secret of the pegasus, and tried hard to find the wand of light, and unspell the evil wenlock's spell, and met Aidan, who also helped in this movie..HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS MOVIE!!!!!!IT IS SOOOO GREAT!!!I WATCHED IT 2 TIMES IN 1 WEEK!!!!!!!!!Hope this helpes!!!!!...more info
- Pretty sweet and enjoyable.
i'm well over the Barbie age, but i happened to catch this on the Disney Channel over Thanksgiving break. Part of me was a little embarrassed to watch it, but the other was rather interested. Barbie has come a long way since i played with her! This movie is worth watching, with or without kids. It's a little on the corny side.... but it's got magic, true love, family values, friendships and plenty of G rated action. And come on, who doesn't like a happy ending?! =0)...more info
- My Daughter's Current "Favorite Movie"
This is by far the movie my daughter asks to watch the most. She loves unicorns/pegasi/horses in general and this movie just delivered everything she loved. Princesses, an exciting storyline that is not too complicated to follow, a gorgeous friendly pegasus and Shiver the polar bear who I have heard much about since she has seen this movie. The colors are nice, the story is well thought out and original as well.
Girls in the age range of 3 to 8 should really enjoy this movie and maybe some even older.
