Barbie™ magically comes to life in this modern adaptation of the E.T.A. Hoffmann classic. The tale begins when Barbie™, playing the role of Clara, receives a beautiful wooden Nutcracker as a gift from her favorite Aunt. That night, while Clara sleeps, the Nutcracker springs to life to ward off the evil Mouse King who has invaded Clara’s parlor. She awakes and aids the Nutcracker, but the Mouse King shrinks her by casting an evil spell. Clara and the Nutcracker set off on a spectacular adventure to find the Sugarplum Princess, the only one who can break the Mouse King’s evil enchantment. The tale is enhanced with spectacular dance scenes created by the acclaimed choreographer Peter Martins, and features the beloved music by Tchaikovsky. The real-life movements of dancers from the New York City Ballet bring the beauty of ballet to the screen in a way never seen before. Barbie in The Nutcracker™ shows that, if you are kind, clever and brave, anything is possible…

A more passive-than-usual Barbie in lackluster holiday tale.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that there are dolls and product tie-ins that accompany this movie. Also, Barbie is not as strong-willed or as complete a character as she becomes in later Barbie movies. There are some perilous moments as well as some hand-to-hand combat; the Mouse King growls and threatens with ferocity, using words like, "stupid," "idiot," and so forth.
