Fantastic Movie, storyline is for tweens

This is a great movie for 9 and up. As far as I am concerned, the songs and the meaning to the story is not for young children in the sense that SPOILER ALERT FOR THE REST OF THIS the princess wants to be herself and not be picture perfect. She also states "All they know is from a screen, so how can I become their queen?" She and Barbie switch places for a day because they look so similar. Amelia gets to be Barbie and act normal and be free. They do kidnap Barbie and Amelia, so if your child is sensitive, they may not want to see that part. It's a FANTASTIC movie with a lot of great role models.
