Just in time for the Summer Games, American Girl’s newest feature-length movie, An American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars is a modern original story about a young and talented gymnast that turns her trials in school into triumph at the gym.

This movie is inspired by the beloved AG line of dolls and features McKenna, the celebrated 2012 Girl of the Year. Talented actors such as Oscar nominee, Nia Vardalos, Jade Pettyjohn, Ian Ziering, Kerris Dorsey, and former Olympic gymnast Cathy Rigby are part of the starting cast. Nia Vardalos is known for her role in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. This movie helps “girls learn to believe not only in family and friends but also themselves.”

This film is available only at Wal-Mart or the American Girl retail stores and online in Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD.  It can also be purchased to download digitally by several online retailers. I am also happy to give one luck reader of 3 Boys and a Dog the opportunity to win a copy of your own.

The DVD is only $14.95 and the Two-disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack is $21.95.
