Mattel Television has announced that Barbie, Chelsea and the rest of the Roberts family are hitting the high seas in “Barbie & Chelsea The Lost Birthday,” arriving on Netflix in the U.S. on April 16. The new animated film is the first to feature Barbie’s little sister, Chelsea, in a starring role and follows the success of last year’s musical special “Barbie Princess Adventure.”
“Barbie’s brand message, about inspiring the limitless potential in every child, and the themes in her stories resonate deeply with both kids and parents all over the world,” says Fred Soulie, senior vice president and general manager, Mattel Television. “This year, we are expanding the Barbie content universe in a number of ways starting with a fantastical story centered around Barbie’s little sister, Chelsea, who embarks on an adventure to save her seventh birthday. Chelsea is an incredibly popular character and we are excited to bring her into the limelight in this television movie. Her story is all about finding your voice and self-empowerment, in the face of unexpected challenges.”
“Barbie & Chelsea The Lost Birthday,” joins additional Barbie content currently available including “Barbie Princess Adventure” and the “Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures” series (both available on Netflix in the U.S.) and “Barbie Vlogger” (available on YouTube).
Barbie & Chelsea The Lost Birthday & More!, an album featuring songs from “Barbie & Chelsea The Lost Birthday,” as well as other previously unreleased tracks sung by both Barbie and Chelsea will also be available across digital streaming platforms beginning on April 16.
“We have barely scratched the surface of the stories the brand can tell, and this is the first of many scripted and unscripted Barbie projects we have in production and development,” says Soulie.
