Since her film debut appearance in 1987 in Barbie and the Rockers: Out of this World, Barbie has been a computer-animated virtual actress starring in several feature films and short films. After a fourteen-year absence, Mattel commissioned films to feature Barbie as a heroine of several princess or fairy-themed stories to accompany a franchise of related dolls and accessories.
Many of the Barbie movies are stand alone tales. There are several series within the overall collection. The most notable of these are the Barbie Princesses Collection series, Barbie Fairytopia series, mermaid-themed series, modern day-themed series, as well as musical and ballet series. Some films are based on the story from E.T.A. Hoffmann, The Brothers Grimm, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Hans Christian Andersen, and Alexander Dumas. Some also include music from Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Dvorak, Mendelssohn, and Adolphe Adam.
The series is produced by Mattel Entertainment. Since 2010, Mattel refers themselves as "Barbie Entertainment" exclusively for the Barbie film production.
