Bratz - Movie Trailer
Bratz - Official Synopsis
The highly popular dolls BRATZ™ come alive in Bratz, the first live action feature film based on the chic fashion dolls. As the Bratz navigate their way through this story, we will see how the four young women represent honesty, camaraderie and most importantly friendship.
As long as they can remember, Yasmin (Nathalia Ramos), Cloe (Skyler Shaye), Sasha (Logan Browning) and Jade (Janel Parrish) have been "BFF" - Best Friends Forever. Inseparable since they first met, the young girls have always supported each other's individual personalities, talents and fabulous fashion styles. But now as the foursome enter Carry Nation High, Yasmin, Cloe, Sasha and Jade face a brand new world: a blackboard jungle, where for the first time they discover life as a teenager means dealing with a system of social cliques, all strictly enforced by student body president Meredith Baxter Dimly. Finding themselves being pulled further and further apart, the girls band together and rise up as "the Bratz" to fight peer pressure, in turn learning how true empowerment means standing up for your friends, being true to oneself and living out one's dreams & aspirations.
The story is a journey that touches upon everyday teenage life; a world full of laughter and celebration; where the multi-ethnicities of the girls is embraced and where the definition of family means loving single moms, divorced parents trying to make it work, a large supportive family or as in Jade’s case, the daughter of an immigrant.
Bratz - Who are the Bratz?
Originally, the Bratz are a line of "fashion" dolls which MGA Entertainment starting producing in 2001. The little diva dolls wear glamorous hairstyles and makeup, and they sport all kinds of trendy and often revealing outfits. The dolls became wildly popular both in the U.S. and abroad, and the Bratz line has now expanded into games, TV, DVDs and more.
The four main characters in the movie Bratz - Yasmin (Nathalia Ramos), Sasha (Logan Browning), Cloe (Skyler Shaye) and Jade (Janel Parrish) - are modeled after the four original Bratz dolls. While the movie Bratz will share the dolls' "passion for fashion," producers promise that the movie will focus on core values such as friendship, being true to oneself, and honoring diversity.
