Barbie™ Stars In The “Real World” For First-Time With All-New Look On May 9th

This May, Barbie™ trades in the fantasy worlds of princesses and fairies for the real world of school, friends and fun with the DVD premiere of The Barbie™ Diaries, an all-new release from Lionsgate (NYSE and TSX: LGF) and Mattel Entertainment.

Featuring a new, distinctive toon-shaded CGI-animated look and a hip, fun soundtrack of eight pop songs that girls will love, this all-new release will target both the traditional Barbie™ video fan, as well as a slightly older girl, aged 5-12. The film follows Barbie™ and her friends as they begin a new school year full of exciting surprises.

With her special diary and charm bracelet in tow, Barbie learns many valuable lessons about friendship, self-confidence and achieving her dreams as she enters this new phase of her life. The Barbie™ Diaries premieres on DVD on May 9, 2006 and is supported by an entire line of dolls, electronic toys and consumer products from Mattel currently at retail. The title will be available as a DVD giftset that includes a special collectible Barbie™ Diary for the suggested retail price of $24.98, as well as on DVD for $19.98.

The Barbie™ Diaries marks the first release for Barbie™ outside of the “Princess” line of videos that hit retail each fall and the “Fairytopia” line available each spring. A powerhouse in the children’s video market, the Barbie™ video franchise has shipped more than 14 million units to date.

It's a new school year, and Barbie hopes it’s going to be totally magical! Barbie and her best friends, who play together in a band (although they haven't played in front of an audience yet...), dream about what they hope to accomplish that year. Things get off to a rocky start when Barbie, who dreams of becoming an anchor at the school TV station, learns that not only has the position been filled by the popular Raquel, but that she has to be Raquel's assistant! To make matters worse, Raquel is dating the boy that Barbie wishes would notice her.

When the girls go out shopping, Barbie stumbles upon a special diary and a charm bracelet which - like magic - seem to turn things around for her in her life. Everything she seems to write in the diary comes true! This gives her the confidence to reach for all her dreams. Is the diary truly magical, or is there some other force at play? Find out for yourself when you unlock The Barbie Diaries on DVD!
