How to watch the Bratz movies in order

Bratz Rock Angelz

Bratz is a massive franchise, and for many early-2000s kids, the brand holds a lot of nostalgia, being many peoples’ doll of choice during the era. And, like Barbie before it, Bratz expanded beyond plastic dolls, becoming a true media franchise that included movies and computer games. 

However, if you want to go back to the Bratz franchise today, it can be hard to know where to start. But don’t worry. If you’re looking for a quick nostalgia hit. Here is what you need to know about watching the Bratz movies in order. 

What is Bratz? 

Bratz started life in 2001 when the company MGA Entertainment released the first line of dolls named Yasmin, Cloe, Jade, and Sasha. The series quickly got several spin-offs, including Bratz Boyz, Bratz Babyz, and Bratzillaz

The first movie, Bratz: Starrin’ & Stylin’ landed on home media in 2004, and it was quickly followed by more movies. At the time of writing, there are 15 Bratz movies, some of which are new material, while others are episodes of the television show stitched together. 

How to watch the Bratz movies in order

Thankfully, the Bratz movies are not a cohesive series following a fixed narrative. The films are generally self-contained, with viewers needing only a passing knowledge of the Bratz franchise to understand them. 

The only film to break away from this is Bratz: Desert Jewelz which is sometimes called Bratz Genie Magic 2: Desert Jewelz as it is a direct sequel to Bratz: Genie Magic. Despite this, however, its story is pretty self-contained. This is good as this sequel came out several years after the original movie. 

None of this has stopped various fans from suggesting different watch orders for the films. Unlike traditional watch orders, none of them are story or continuity-based. Mostly, these orders group the movies based on their theme or the franchise they belong to.
