Barbie and Stacie to the Rescue heading to Netflix

February 6, 2024

Mattel has announced that Barbie, Stacie and friends are returning for an all-new journey in Barbie and Stacie to the Rescue. Coming to Netflix on March 14th (September 5th in the UK), the hour-long special will follow Barbie’s middle sister, Stacie, as she comes to the rescue of Barbie and Skipper. Barbie and Stacie to the Rescue marks the first time Stacie plays a lead role in Barbie content and includes five new original songs, new friends, and more puppies than ever.

In Barbie and Stacie to the Rescue, audiences will see Barbie and Stacie embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Confident and adventurous, Stacie finds herself caught in the middle when the Roberts family heads to Wisconsin for a hot air balloon festival where she is too young for adult activities, yet too old to play with the little kids. But, when her older sisters Barbie and Skipper find themselves in trouble, Stacie finds she has the right skills to save the day.

“Our animated Barbie content is developed to both empower and entertain,” said Michelle Mendelovitz, Global Head of Mattel Television Studios. “By placing Stacie at the centre of the story, Barbie and Stacie to the Rescue provides audiences with a new heroine in Stacie and an entirely new perspective on the Barbie universe. We cannot wait to share this fun-spirited special with Barbie fans.”

The latest installment of Mattel’s animated Barbie content follows 2023’s fan-favorite series Barbie: A Touch of Magic as well as other successful titles including Barbie: It Takes Two, Barbie: Epic Road Trip, Barbie: Mermaid Power, Barbie DreamHouse Adventures, plus many more.

Christopher Keenan and Frederic Soulie serve as Executive Producers on Barbie and Stacie to the Rescue, which is written by Kay Donmyer. Barbie and Stacie to the Rescue will be available on Netflix in the US, Canada, APAC (excluding China) and EMEA (excluding the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Poland and Romania) on March 14th. The special will debut in Latin America, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Romania, and MENA on September 5th, also on Netflix. Broadcast partners including Super RTL, Cartoonito, POP, Kanal2, and Kidzone will distribute the special throughout the year.

The five-song music album for Barbie and Stacie to the Rescue will also release on March 14th and be available on all major streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple, and Amazon Music.
