How can I refuse?
~ Preminger's catchphrase.

Preminger is the main antagonist of Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper, the fourth film of the stand-alone Barbie direct-to-video film series.

His goal is to rule the kingdom by marrying a royal. Preminger has a French Poodle named Midas that antagonizes Serafina and Wolfie. He also has two minions named Nick and Nack who work for him.

He was voiced by Martin Short, who also played Huy in The Prince of Egypt, Ooblar in Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, Jack Frost in Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, The Appraiser and Jester in Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return, Sebastian Ballentine in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Mr. Wiloughby in The Wiloughbys and Cam Clarke in the CD ROM version of the movie.

History

Much of Preminger's early history remains unknown. However, it is known that Preminger is the son of a peasant, and, at some point he became the royal adviser of Queen Genevieve. His main goal is to become the king of her kingdom. To do this, he has his minions, Nick and Nack, steal the kingdom's gold supply over a period of ten years. His plan is to show the stolen gold to Genevieve and pass it off as something he "discovered" while away on a long journey. Then, Princess Anneliese would marry him to save the kingdom and he would be crowned king.

However, when he learns that the queen is going to marry off her daughter to King Dominick, the wealthy king of Dulcinea, he orders his minions to kidnap her so that the wedding will be cancelled. They succeed in their task, however Prince Julian, the princess's tutor and closest friend, suspects that Preminger is trying to have the wedding cancelled and asks her look-a-like, Queen Erika, to take her place while Julian searches for her. She succeeds in fooling the Queen, so Preminger, fearing that the princess escaped, goes to check in on his minions who are keeping her captive.

By the time he arrives at the cabin, he discovers that the real Anneliese has escaped, but ponders why she didn't tell the queen she had been captured. As he tries to figure out what is happening with the princess, he realizes that Julian is spying on them and has his minions ambush him from behind.

Later, he presents Anneliese (who’s actually Erika) to King Dominick and watches from afar as the two begin to bond. Eventually, the princess's cat, Serafina, delivers a hand-written message to the palace, found by Preminger and his dog Midas. The message reveals that Anneliese is locked up in Madame Carp's Dress Emporium, so he retrieves her and pretends to take her back to the palace. Instead, he takes her to a mining cave where Julian had been imprisoned, locking them up before collasping the cave's exit. Preminger then returns to the palace, claims that Anneliese is dead, and exposes Erika for the imposter that she is, ordering the guards to throw her into the dungeon. To make sure Genevieve believes him, he tells her that he tried to save Anneliese but could only find her ring. He shows Genevieve the stolen gold and proposes to her, promising to save the kingdom with the gold on the condition that he becomes king. Genevieve reluctantly agrees. As she’s about to marry him, Anneliese appears and exposes Preminger as a schemer. He tries to escape, but his horse turns on him and throws him off his back. He lands into the wedding cake and then he gets arrested.
