"It's the ultimate fairytale musical! Barbie stars as Alexa, a shy princess who discovers a secret door in her kingdom and enters a whimsical land filled with magical creatures and surprises. Inside, Alexa meets Romy and Nori, a mermaid and a fairy, who explain that a spoiled ruler named Malucia is trying to take all the magic in the land. To her surprise, Alexa has magical powers in this world, and her new friends are certain that only she can restore their magic. Discover what happens when Alexa finds the courage to stand up for what's right and learns that the power of friendship is far more precious than magic."

- The voice of Samantha, Arielle Tuliao, has "Barbie: The Princess and the Secret Door" as the title of the film on her resume.
- In the beginning of the movie it the distributor was written "Mattel Playground Productions" instead of "Barbie Entertainment".
- When Alexa asked Nori and Romy about the boy and the flying carpet, she might possibly have been refering to the folktale "Aladdin".
- Romy and Nori have noticeably different hairstyles in the teaser trailers.
- This movie marks the first time a Barbie movie is directed by a female director (Karen J. Lloyd).
- The movie's logo in the Teaser tralier and the final film is a bit different. In the teaser trailer the logo's border is pink and there's a door in the bottom with a melody sign but in the official logo it has a blue border and in the bottom the border's line end with curves. Though, both look the same.
- Like in the movie Titanic Nori used the same words like Leonardo Dicaprio had said on the ship
Similarities to other Barbie movies
- The hairstyle Alexa gives Romy during "I've Got Magic" is the same as Jenna's and Princess Lumina's disguise hair in Barbie: The Pearl Princess.
- Both Princess Alexa and Princess Victoria from Barbie: The Princess & The Popstar prefer to do anything other than their royal duties. Both princesses also give a speech as part of their royal duties, at the end of the movies.
- The same character model of Alexandra Privet from Barbie: Princess Charm School was used for Queen Adrienne.
- The fairies in Zinnia wear the same dresses as Princess Catania's from Barbie: Mariposa & the Fairy Princess, just in different colors.
- Nola has the same hairstyle and dress as the 8-year-old Princess Catania.
- Alexa, Jenna and Samantha in What's Gonna Happen (reprise) at the end of the movie use recolored versions of Keira's dress from Barbie: the Princess and the Popstar.
- Both the movie and Barbie: Mariposa & the Fairy Princess have magical creatures (Crystallite and The Queen Unicorn) as protectors from the antagonists (Malucia and Gwyllion). Also,both magical creatures were found by the antagonists and almost got defeated. Both the worlds from the movies (Zinnia and Shimmervale) were almost taken over by the antagonists. However, unlike Malucia, Gwyllion reformed.
- Much like Odile from Barbie of Swan Lake and Crystal from Barbie: A Fairy Secret, Malucia is forced to clean as punishment for what she did.
- Both the movie and Barbie in The Pink Shoes tell the story about protagonists (Alexa and Kristyn Farraday) who were transported into magical worlds with their titular objects given to them by someone who knows of their power but doesn't reveal it. Both of them also save the magical worlds from the evil rulers (Malucia and Snow Queen). Both protagonists are also not really confident with themselves to do their duties (Alexa in her royal duties and Kristyn in her ballet school performance), but became much better at the end of the films.
- Queen Adrienne's formal dress is similiar to Dame Devin's except it's not green.
- In the "I've Got Magic" scene, Alexa makes a pearl necklace with her magic wand. This is similiar to Princess Lumina as she has pearl magic.
- In "I've Got Magic" scene before Alexa change Nori and Romy's dresses, Romy's bow are missing.
- Romy's bow also missing after she and Nori being forced with Malucia's minions to tell the hidden place of fairies and mermaids.
