American Girl's Corinne Tan movie was just officially announced today for Cartoon Network and HBO Max!
The movie will star 15 year old Miya Cech, who starred in the indie film Marvelous and the Black Hole, as Corinne Tan, and her sister Kai as Gwynn Tan. Kai was an extra in Marvelous and the Black Hole.
According to Deadline, this is a story about sisterhood, perserverance and self-acceptance following Corinne and Gwynn adjusting to life as part of a blended family as a result of their parent's divorce. Corinne finds new purpose along the way when she rescues a dog that, in a way, rescues her right back.
Michelle Krusiec is also portraying Corinne's mom. She recently starred on Hawaii Five Oh and was the lead in the indie film Saving Face back in 2004.
The movie will be a live-action one hour special that is scheduled to premiere on Cartoon Network in December 2022, along with a release on HBO Max the next day. It is produced by Mattel Television and MarVista Entertainment.
I can't wait to see this!
