Barbie in the Nutcracker (2001)

A strange, and still stunning debut of the modern barbieverse.

Regan Humphrey

Clara (Kelly Sheridan), a sheltered girl in the care of her grandfather, expects nothing out of the ordinary this Christmas season. She certainly doesn’t expect that a gift from her favorite aunt will lead to a quest: A desperate search for the Sugarplum Princess—a mythical enchantress with the power to end a civil war between the citizens of Parthenia, a magical realm, and the tyrannical Mouse King (Tim Curry) who rules it. With the help of Nutcracker (Kirby Morrow), Major Mint (Christopher Gaze), and Captain Candy (Ian James Corlett), Clara must work quickly, if she ever hopes to return home.
