There have been several American-Canadian computer animated and motion capture-based direct-to- video films based on and featuring the doll Barbie. Since her film debut appearance in the 1987 film Barbie and the Rockers: Out of This World, Barbie has been a computer animated virtual actress starring in several feature films and short films. Barbie has also appeared as a character in other films including Mattel 's My Scene line as well as the Toy Story film series.

Many of the Barbie films are classic stories ranging from fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen to The Three Musketeers and The Nutcracker. Some are set in their own fantasy worlds such as with Fairytopia and Mariposa, which are revisited in video sequels. Others feature Barbie in storylines with her sisters.

The series was created by Mattel Creations. Mattel started the Barbie film series with Barbie in the Nutcracker using the name Mattel Entertainment with the animation work done by Mainframe Entertainment (now Rainmaker Studios) except for The Barbie Diaries. Beginning with the 2010 film Barbie : A Fashion Fairytale ), Mattel referred themselves as Barbie Entertainment for the Barbie film production. Starting with Barbie and the Secret Door in 2014, Mattel used their new in- house film studio, Mattel Playground Productions to include Barbie films in its production without mentioning Rainmaker in the opening credits.
