If your daughter is always asking, "When's the next Barbie movie coming out?" this page can help. It is updated frequently with the newest Barbie movie information. So far, Mattel's famous doll has starred in 27 animated films, and new ones are being released at the rate of about two per year. My daughter has every one of the CGI-animated Barbie movies, and anxiously awaits the release of each new one.
In 2013, three new movies featuring Barbie were released. The first, "Barbie in The Pink Shoes," came out in early February, followed by "Barbie Mariposa & the Fairy Princess," in August, and "Barbie and Her Sisters in a Pony Tale" in October. Now another installment is planned for March 2014. Read about the recent movies and upcoming installments below.

Barbie and Her Sisters in a Pony Tale - Released in October 2013
Barbie's sisters - Skipper, Chelsea and Stacie - don't get nearly as much attention as their famous siblings, but now they're headlining in a movie with her. (They also all appeared in "Barbie: A Perfect Christmas," but didn't get included in the title.)
In this new film, the four sisters set off for a vacation in the Swiss Alps. Each girl has her own idea of how to spend their vacation, so their trips gets off to a rocky start. But when Barbie finds a wild horse in the woods, their visit becomes magical.
This movie, which was released in October 2013, just in time for Christmas, features a theme song called "You're The One," performed by Heavynn Gates.

"Barbie: The Pearl Princess" will be the next movie in the series. Coming in March 2014, this film features everyone's favorite doll as LuminaT, a mermaid with magical powers who who wants to be a princess. She and her best friend KudaT, a pink seahorse, visit an undersea mer-kingdom where she uses her powers to help save the kingdom
This movie will be released March 11, but can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
Barbie Mariposa and the Fairy Princess - Another 2013 release
At first glance, you might not recognize "Barbie Mariposa and the Fairy Princess" as a new movie. Those familiar with the film franchise might initially mistake it for "Barbie Mariposa," the 2008 flick about the butterfly fairy Mariposa who must save the land of Flutterfield from a power-hungry fairy. But this is, indeed, a brand new film, and it marks the 5th movie in the Fairytopia series.
In this new tale, Mariposa is back with her friend Zee. After becoming the Ambassador of Flutterfield, Mariposa's new job is to bring peace between her people and the Crystal Fairies of Shimmervale. Mariposa doesn't make a good first impression on the king of Shimmervale, but she and his daughter, Princess Catania, becomes friend until a misunderstanding erupts. Mariposa is banished from the kingdom, but when she encounters a dark fairy who intends to destroy Shimmervale, Mariposa knows she must help Princess Catania and all the fairies.
Like many of its predecessors, the next Barbie movies stresses the value of friendship. The theme song, performed by Alana Hyland, is appropriately titled "Be a Friend."
