Franchise/{{Barbie}} plays Annika, a sheltered princess tired of her overprotective parents stopping her from having any fun. On her sixteenth birthday, an evil sorcerer named Wenlock appears and demands she marry him. When she refuses, he turns everyone in the kingdom, including the king and queen, into ice statues, and says he'll only change them back if Annika accepts his proposal.

Just then, she's whisked away by a talking pegasus. Brietta, as the horse introduces herself, takes Annika to a magical place in the clouds called the Cloud Kingdom, where she'll be safe from Wenlock. She soon learns that Brietta was once a human girl - her sister, in fact, who was transformed by Wenlock when she refused to accept his marriage proposal.

Annika becomes determined to save her people, her parents, and even Brietta. But to do it she'll need to go on a quest to create a "[[MacGuffin Wand Of Light]]", the only magic strong enough to overpower Wenlock's. And she's got to do it in [[CelestialDeadline three days]], or else his curse on the kingdom will be permanent.
