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 dog 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.


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 is actually Erika) to King Dominick and watches from afar as the two begin to bond.
