Western Animation / Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus

Go To

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 "Wand Of Light", the only magic strong enough to overpower Wenlock's. And she's got to do it in three days, or else his curse on the kingdom will be permanent.


This movie provides examples of:

  • Solve the Soup Cans: The Wand parts were very much this. Good thing Annika had such great luck.
  • Super OCD: Annika and Brietta’s mother. This may be somewhat justified in that, after what happened to Brietta, she fears for Annika's safety.
  • Taken for Granite: One of the powers of Wenlock's wand.
  • Transformation Sequence:
    • For no good reason at all, Annika transforms into a super princess when she uses the wand the second time.
    • Brietta also gets one when Annika uses the Wand of Light to undo Wenlock's spell on her, returning her to human form.
  • Trophy Wife: Wenlock chooses his brides by looks.
  • Unwanted Spouse: Wenlock's brides, who he turned into ogres when he grew tired of them.
  • Wham Line:
    • Wenlock reveals Annika has a sister:
    Wenlock: Are you telling me what to do? You've forgotten what happened to your other daughter.
    • Annika discovers her sister is in fact Brietta:
    Blush: We never had a real person here before...except for your sister, of course.
    Annika: My sister?
    Blush: Brietta.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Ferris's transformation isn't seen being undone.

There is always hope.
