But when royal teacher Dame Devin discovers that Blairª looks a lot like the kingdomÕs missing princess, she turns BlairÕs world upside down to stop her from claiming the throne.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this direct-to-DVD movie is an installment in Mattel's ever-growing list of cleverly marketed tie-ins to their newest Barbie collections. While there's little objectionable content in the story (besides the inclusion of a perpetually ignorant "air head" character), the entire movie is made to boost advertising and generate even more interest in the dolls and their accessories -- in this case about a princess academy where one spot is reserved for a lottery winner who will learn how to be a lady-in-waiting to royalty. Despite the emphasis on makeovers and fashion, there's a stronger than usual focus on practicing skills (even if they're of the "finishing school" variety), telling the truth, and being kind to those less fortunate.
