Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Barbie as Rapunzel is a Barbie-inserted take on the classic fairy tale, which has a somewhat morose premise: Rapunzel believes she has been abandoned as a child, has a mean stepmother, and is locked in a tower and treated as an indentured servant. But within those confines, Barbie manages to foster good friendships, find solace in art, and still take the high road with those who've wronged her. There's some very minor fighting with swords, magic power that knocks characters off their feet, and a brief scene where guards are tied up and their mouths duct-taped.
There is some very minor fighting with swords, magic power that knocks characters off their feet, and a brief scene where guards are tied up and their mouths duct-taped. Otherwise, the movie mainly shows Rapunzel imprisoned, and in one scene, her hair is chopped off by magic.
Barbie as Rapunzel promotes positive messages about loyalty, friendship, courage, being true to your dreams, and most significantly, believing in yourself.
Barbie is an international marketing behemoth that has no doubt reached all possible crevices of the earth, but nothing in this movie promotes any specific merchandise.
