A List of Barbie Movies: How Many Have You Seen?
Barbie, the popular doll made by Mattel, is also a movie star. Her first movie was Barbie and the Rockers: Out of this World, which was released in 1987. It was followed by two other movies in the late '80s and early '90s, but then everyone's favorite doll took a 14-year hiatus from film. In 2001, however, Barbie started appearing in made-for-DVD movies. The newest Barbie movie, "Barbie & Her Sisters in A Pony Tale" was released in October, just two months after the newest addition to the Fairytopia series hit the shelves. This latest film marks the 29th movie starring the popular doll. Another installment will be coming soon! How many have you seen? Here's a complete Barbie movie list.
