Western Animation / Barbie and the Three Musketeers
It's The Three Musketeers
, done with Barbie
in the main part.
In this version, Barbie (voice of Kelly Sheridan
) plays Corinne, daughter of D'Artagnan and Constance. Corinne wants to become a Musketeer, like her father, but she's a woman. Undaunted, she sets off for Paris, where her letter of recommendation is instantly stolen and she is forced to work as a maid in the castle. She gets her chance, however, when she's forced to reveal her training after an attempt on the Prince's life goes awry. Along with fellow maids Aramina, Renée and Viveca, Corinne works to counter the plot of an evil chancellor (voice of Tim Curry
) who wishes to usurp the throne.
This movie contains examples of:
- Action Girl: One of the closest the Barbie films have gotten to this.
- Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The girls correspond to this, with Corinne being the Blonde, Viveca and Renee the Brunettes, and Aramina the Redhead.
