Barbie in A Mermaid Tale 2 full movie plot:
On the anniversary of Merliah’s (Liah for short) adventure in Oceana, Remo offers a summary of the first movie’s events on the show, Good Morning Oceana. Back in Malibu, Liah, Fallon, and Merliah’s surfing rival Kylie are engaged in a global surfing competition. Liah wins this level of the competition with Kylie finishing second and Fallon, third, meaning that they all are going to Australia for the next level. Liah heads to Ocean to tell her mother, Queen Calissa the news. There she learns she has to attend the once-every-twenty-years Changing of the Tides Ceremony in the aquatic city of Aquellia. At this special ceremony one of the royal family must sit on the throne, speak an ancient rite. Once that is done they gain the power over, Merillia, the ocean’s life force. The ceremony, however, is on the same day of the surfing competition. Liah, however, wants to prove that she is better then Kylie more than any obligations she has to her mother, and decides to go to Australia after arguing with her mother. Queen Calissa is heartbroken by her daughter’s decision.
Despite being 20, I do get pleasure watching the Barbie movies. They are cute and fun, even they are on the corny side sometimes. I enjoyed the first Mermaid Tale movie, and was expecting similar for Barbie in A Mermaid Tale 2 full movie. And on the whole I got that. It could’ve been longer perhaps, the story does take time to get going and I personally could’ve done without the fish puns(Karate Squid and Raiders of the Lost Corp). However, the story on the whole is sweet with a nice message, getting even better with the chemistry between Merliah and Kylie, and the stunts are neatly done. The characters are nothing new compared to other Barbie movies, but Merliah and Kylie are likable with a but of sass and Eris is an effective enough villainess. The supporting characters are also very cute. The voice work is solid, with Kathaleen Barr doing a great job as Eris, and Kelly Sheridan getting better every time. I liked best of all the soundtrack, which is catchy with some whimsical moments as well, and the bright and colourful animation. Overall, sweet and entertaining, a good, if not great, movie.
Liah, Fallon, Kylie, Hadley and grandfather Break head off to Australia. Kylie wins the competition by knocking Liah in the water, but Liah gets more media attention by the trick she performs. This get’s the interest of Georgie Majors of Wave Crest Surf Gear, who then asks her to be their spokesperson, and she agrees. That night, they do the first photo shoot at a luau. But at the luau, Kylie sits alone.
Meanwhile, Calissa and Zuma have gone to Aquellia, which is near in New Zealand. Calissa decides to do the ceremony herself, refusing to discuss her daughter. Liah has given the magical necklace to Hadley for safe keeping during the Luau, because it isn’t part of the Wave Crest brand. Kylie is met by Alistair, a fish. He tells her that the necklace is the reason why Liah is a better surfer, so Kylie steals it.
When Kylie puts on the necklace, she becomes a mermaid. Alistair convinces her to come with him. The curious Snouts follows. Liah and her friends look for the necklace, but can’t find it. Kylie gets lead to a whirlpool, and when she is sucked in, Eris is freed, and heads to Aquellia to gain the power over Merillia and regain her throne. Snouts finds Liah, and they head back together to the whirlpool.
To help with her scheme, Eris calls on the Stargazers, a school of huge and wicked fish. She has also developed a new power where she can make anyone live their most horrible nightmares. She demonstrates this by turning the lead Stargazer into a tiny fish when he questions her plan. The Stargazers then accompany Eris to Aquellia. Liah and Snouts release Kylie from the whirlpool after which Kylie describes who came out of it when she went in. Liah realizes that it was Eris. Kylie is sorry for what has happened and offers to give back the necklace, but Liah knows she won’t be able to breath in the water with out it, and she immediately need to go to Aquellia to stop Eris. Kylie decides to come along with her to help.
The towers of stone have been prepared for the Changing of the Tides ceremony. Calissa invites the fours Oceanic ambassadors for tea as they wait for noon to begin. Before that can happen, Eris and the Stargazers show up and attack. Eris uses her powers and the five are transformed: Calissa can no longer swim and sinks; Kattrin becomes incredibly slow; Renata becomes super fearful; Selena becomes hideous; and Mirabella find herself trapped in a confined space. Before she is imprisoned by Eris, Calissa sends Zuma to seek out Liah. Liah can already sense something is wrong, and when she meets up with Zuma the three quickly head off to save her mother. .
Despite knowing that she’ll become a mermaid forever by doing the ceremony, Liah agrees to do it to stop Eris. She and her group get to the throne in time, but since Liah doesn’t have a tail, the ceremony fails. Eris tries to use her powers on Liah, but the magic of the ceremony stops her and instead she falls victim to her power. Kylie offer her the necklace and she takes it, returning it just in time to prevent Kylie from drowning. Liah’s act frees her mother and the ambassadors. Eris is transformed into her most horrible nightmare; she has lost her tail and has legs instead. The ambassadors then take her to an even more escape proof prison that the whirlpool.
Liah is saddened as she is now permanently a mermaid as is Kylie tell her that with out Liah in the competition it wouldn’t feel right for her to compete. Liah, however, want her to, for the both of them and tells her she can keep the necklace for all the help she was in battling Eris. After Kylie swims away, Liah wishes that she could be human again, and to her surprise, her legs are restored. Her mother explains to her that the ceremony make the one that takes it into her true self. Since Liah is both human and mermaid she can be either any time she wants.
Both Kylie and Liah make it for the competition, but Liah is unfocused due to the merillia she creates when she touches the water, so Kylie wins. As a result, Georgie Majors asks Kylie to be Wave Crest’s spokesperson and she agrees. Kylie and Liah hold the trophy together and everybody cheers.
