"Rock your own story"
Barbie in Rock 'N Royals is the 30th Barbie movie. It was released on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD, and UltraViolet on August 31, 2015 in the UK and on September 8, 2015 in the US. It made its TV premiere on Nickelodeon on November 1, 2015. The soundtrack was released in August on Amazon and is available now on iTunes.
"GET READY TO ROCK!
In this upbeat musical, Barbie™ stars as Princess Courtney, a modern princess whose world is turned upside down when she switches places with Erika, a famous rockstar. Two very different worlds collide when a mix-up sends Princess Courtney to Camp Pop and Erika, to Camp Royalty. While the leaders of the rival camps try to correct the mix-up, both Courtney and Erika learn to adjust to the different worlds and have fun while making new, unexpected friends. When the girls learn both camps are at risk of shutting down, they must embrace their differences, find their true voices, and come together for an epic sing-off that shows anything is possible when you dare to dream big!"
On an island, there are two summer camps: Camp Royalty, for young royals; and Camp Pop, for young musicians. Princess Courtney accidentally goes to Camp Pop, and Erika Juno, a famous rock star, goes to Camp Royalty. Erika is heard singing by Lady Anne, the headmistress of Camp Royalty, and Lady Anne proposes a sing-off between the two camps to the head of Camp Pop, Finn Oxford. The losing camp would close for good, and the winning camp would gain their property. The judges for the sing-off were rock legend Allegra James, Prince Reginald of Thistlebrook, and Svetlana Petranova of Camp Arabesque.
The campers were unaware of the losing camp having to close until Erika overheard Lady Anne's assistant, Clive, talking about it. Clive also said that he had bribed Svetlana to vote in favor of Camp Royalty. Being royalty himself, Prince Reginald would already be biased towards Camp Royalty, whereas Allegra would be biased towards Camp Pop as she is a musician.
Erika told Princess Courtney and the other campers that they could lose one camp, which made campers from both camps decide to perform together instead of competing. Allegra and Prince Reginald abstained from voting because of the change of circumstances, so Svetlana chose Camp Royalty as the winner. However, Finn and Lady Anne overrule the decision, deciding that rock and royalty can mix rather than oppose each other. They planned to merge the camp the following summer, and Erika and Princess Courtney formed a band with their friends called Rock 'n Royals.

- Courtney and Tori pulled the same prank on a duchess.
- Both princesses' hair turned pink during the last concert.
- Erika is an anagram of Keira, both of whom are the pop stars of their movies.
- Rock 'n Royals is the last movie where the protagonist is played by Barbie, and not named Barbie. It is the second to last movie not about the Roberts family's personal life.
- Descriptions for the Mega Bloks merchandise for the movie say Princess Courtney and Erika are named Emma and Harper instead.
- Teresa Espinosa, who did the dance choreography for Barbie The Princess & the Popstar, also did the choreography for this movie.
- Courtney often gets asked questions by the kids at Camp Pop referring to the fairytale Cinderella; first Sloane jokes about her being a Cinderella who "took the wrong turn on her way to the ball", then Rayna asks her if she has any evil stepsisters.
- When Zia asked Courtney if she'd ever turned a frog into a handsome prince, she was referring to the fairytale The Frog Prince.
- This is the second movie that Kelly Sheridan voiced another character besides Barbie (Svetlana Petranova), the first one is Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus.
References to Other Movies
- There are portraits of Alexandra Privet, Duchess Amelia, the royal judge from Barbie: Princess Charm School, one of Keira's dancers, and King Terrance in Lady Anne's office.
- Finn calls Camp Royalty an "outdated Charm School," which is a reference to the titular school in Barbie: Princess Charm School.
- Zia holds up a wig that looks like Malucia's hair from Barbie and the Secret Door. Also during this scene, when she throws things around looking for said wig, she throws the Nutcracker from Barbie in the Nutcracker.
- Courtney says she pranked a duchess by turning the her portrait into that of a donkey. Tori pulled this prank in Barbie The Princess & the Popstar.
- The unicorn doll that made by magic from Princess Aubray's scepter was similar with an unicorn doll named Buttercup from Pixar's Toy Story 3.
- In the sing-off, Princess Courtney is seen singing with hold the microphone in her left hand. When Erika Juno and the Camp Royalty students appear onstage, the microphone is in her right hand.
- Marcus's drum kit is wrong. There are too many cymbals and has an extra bass drum. This is a problem similar to the character Courtney in The Barbie Diaries.
