Julie and Ivy are getting a movie! It is called An American Girl Story - Ivy & Julie 1976: A Happy Balance.
"Based in 1976 San Francisco, Ivy Ling is a 10-year-old Chinese-American girl who struggles with finding a balance between her two cultural identities: Chinese and American. With the Chinese Cultural Revolution and the Vietnam War so recent, embracing her heritage doesn't feel appealing to young Ivy. All she wishes is to be like her all-American best friend, Julie Albright. But, when Ivy's All-City Gymnastics Tournament and her family's big Chinese New Year dinner land on the same day, she must decide between the two."
It will be released on March 24, 2017.
Here's a image from the movie:
Nina Lu will portray the role of Ivy. Nina has a role on the Disney Channel show Bunk'd. Hannah Nordberg from General Hospital will play Julie. Here's some photos from the set:
Amazon also announced that there will be a American Girl Special 4 on June 9, 2017. Tenney? Gabriela? I don't know.
Are they bringing back Ivy? I hope so! If they do, I will rename my Ivy to Nicole.
AMERICAN GIRL TRIVIA: A Julie musical was in the works for a 2012 release date, but it got canceled.
COMMENT DISCUSSION QUESTION: Do you think Ivy's coming back?
