This week, Josephine dipped her toes in the Barbie Cinematic Universe for the first time.
All of the Barbie ballet movies are set in the context of Barbie, telling her younger sister Kelly, fairy tales - with a ballet twist of course.
Since Josephine grew up with brothers, she never watched these movies. She was mostly interested to see how the children's movie would handle the darker themes of the ballet.
There are many versions of Swan Lake globally, but in general, it's a tragic ending. Odette usually dies of heartbreak in swan form - and Black Swan really cashed in on this twisted ending too. So naturally, Josephine had a touch of big sister concern leading up to the movie's climax & ending. We care about your childhoods.
Did you grow up watching Barbie ballet movies? Which Barbie should we watch next?
