Barbie As Rapunzel (Bilingual)

Go back in time to a place of magic and dragons, where Barbie stars as Rapunzel. Rapunzel had the most beautiful, radiant hair the world had ever seen. But Rapunzel’s life was far from wonderful. She lived as a servant of Gothel, a jealous, scheming witch who kept her hidden deep in a forbidding forest, guarded by the enormous dragon Hugo and surrounded by an enchanted glass wall. However, in a twist of fate, Rapunzel’s discovery of a magic paintbrush leads her on a journey that will unravel a web of deception, bring peace to two feuding kingdoms, and ultimately lead her to love with the handsome Prince Stefan. She succeeds with the help of Penelope, the least intimidating of dragons! Starring Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston as Gothel and Cree Summer as Penelope. The movie features a song performed by Samantha Mumba and music by the London Symphony Orchestra. Barbie as Rapunzel shows that love and imagination can change the world…
Barbie as Rapunzel will thrill children aged 3 to 8, following the success of Barbie in the Nutcracker. Barbie may have started life as a doll in the 1950s, but these days she's also making her name as a computer-animated film star. In a modern twist on the classic fairy tale, Barbie stars as Rapunzel--a courageous and imaginative princess who is locked away in a tower by the evil witch Gothel. With help from her friends (Penelope the cute purple dragon and Hobie the rabbit) and through the power of her own creative energies, she paints her way out of the tower to find freedom, truth, and love.
Anjelica Huston is memorable as the vocal talent behind the unbalanced and scary Gothel, and excellent sound effects and colors greatly enhance the film. Hugo the mighty dragon, Otto the nasty ferret, and the sword fight between the feuding kings will hold the attention of those brothers of Barbie fans who are less than enthusiastic about watching this 80-minute film, but essentially this is a little girls' film and the outrageously pink castle, the magical fashion show before the masked ball, and the fairy-tale wedding will make it a firm favorite for that audience. --Tracey Hogan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Barbie Rapunzel is about the King's daughter who was kidnapped at birth. She does have long hair but not long enough to climb. She is kept in a forest hidden by a magic barrier. Her captor is called Gothel, who was in love with Rapunzel's Father. She had captured Rapunzel to get revenge when he didn't marry her. He thought that his neighbor king did it. So now there is a war going on between the two kingdoms. Rapunzel grows up beautiful. She likes to paint and has two friends. A rabbit and a dragon. One day she finds a way out of her prison and she meets the prince. Though she doesn't know that. But Gothel finds out! She destroyes Rapunzel's paintings and painting material when she says she doesn't know who she met. Rapunzel then uses the magic paint brush that she had found earlier to paint a picture of the town she was in. Going through the painting she finds herself with the prince. She asks not to know his name when he offers it for reasons of her own. Stephon, the prince, and her walk together then the dragon shows up to tell her Gothel is comeing back. Before she goes through another painting Stephon gives her an invatation to the princes ball. When she gets back gothel finds out about the ball and cuts of Rapunzel's hair, and asks once again who she met.Read more ›
Honestly, I never liked the original Rapunzel story (a bit silly)and when I sat down to watch this with my niece and nephew, I was not looking forward to another cornball children's show. The changes made to the story were definate improvements
I was very happy with it and the kids love it too!
My nephew (4 years old) likes the movie eventhough he is a boy, I would probably not expect this dvd to be in a single man's collection, but to everyone else with kids, you'll enjoy it. Nothing not to like really, just a simple, clean, fun movie for the young and the young at heart.
I hope they continue to make barbie movies that are more fantasy story oriented (like Rapunzel) rather than the other two ballet based films in which I found the long dancing scenes to be a bit nausiating, takes away from the film I think.
