While I was watching the Isabelle movie, I talked to my sister about what was happening and had a lot of fun talking to her, so I figured it would be fun to quiz her on American Girl movies and post what she said!
Disclaimer: My sister Sierra is not an expert in American Girl dolls and hasn't seen all of these movies.
Samantha: An American Girl Holiday: This has to be a Christmas movie, Samantha was in the 1900s, she probably goes on a sleigh and it's snowing outside and that's the ending, and she learns about friendship
Felicity: An American Girl Adventure: Shailene Woodley wouldn't make a bad movie. Pretty cool, Felicity rides horses, she was probably running away from the British, probably went on her horse to go find Ben, in the end, she got him back and obviously, America won. The end.
Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front: She was in World War II, they probably referred to Nazis as "the enemy", about patriotism going on, probably did a play about it, learned about friendship, Emily was her best friend, was in the movie more, the play had fireworks, and then they won the war.
Kit Kittredge: An American Girl: This one was in the movies, the Great Depression, "trying to vibe", I remember something about her dad, the dog (Grace), her treehouse, wanting the treehouse, Ruthie was fine during the Great Depression, Kit tried to make a newspaper business in order to help her family, in the end, probably learns about friendship and the class system
Chrissa Stands Strong: Chrissa was bullied. So was Gwen, Sonali decided not to be a bully anymore "just kidding, i'm gonna be nice now" Gwen was homeless, that made Karens angry. Chrissa learns to stand up to her bullies, she has a wonderful and fluffy llama named Starburst. I wouldn't bully someone who had a llama.
McKenna Shoots for the Stars: She broke her leg and then her world came crashing down. She recovers, she's fine, and then she goes about her life and probably wins the Olympics. The end.
Saige Paints The Sky (she's never seen it): The arts center wanted to peace out, but Saige said "not today. Not for my grandmother." Then she had a bake sale. Or an art sale. And she saves it. The end. Somewhere in the middle she goes in a hot air balloon.
Isabelle Dances Into the Spotlight: Oh dear. Isabelle was extremely mean to her older sister. I felt attacked by Isabelle, so she loses points for that. She's in a performing arts school for dance, she's gotta do the Nutcracker, her end goal is to do a good job, she needs to know how to pirouette, so magically her idol walks in and gives her lessons for free. (Jon Bellion, if you're out there, watch this movie and get back to me for those lessons.)
Grace Stirs Up Success: Olivia Rodrigo- queen. Grace basically pulls a Kit except she is not in the Great Depression. She doesn't want her bakery to be sold- wait a minute, this is just like Saige. Nice try, American Girl. We see what you're doing.
Lea to the Rescue: Her brother peaces out, and is like "I need to find him." With the help of adults, because she's only nine, she goes to find him. He doesn't want to be found. Moral of the story: don't run away to the rainforest. Or anywhere.
Melody 1963: Love Has to Win: Wait, I didn't know they made this! Probably has to do with Motown. She probably sings a song and makes a demo and learns about friendship.
Maryellen 1955: Extraordinary Christmas: She probably did some science experiment to make the Christmas lights on her house hang up faster.
Ivy and Julie 1976: A Happy Balance: They have to learn about friendship. Because it's friendship. This takes place in the 70's, and by the look of her dress, it's probably Chinese New Year.
Summer Camp: Friends For Life: I didn't know they made these movies! It would be boring to watch Z make a stop-motion for 40 minutes, so they made Summer Camp.
Rebelle (did this one as a joke): *starts clapping* That's my answer. 10/10. If you haven't watched it already, you should. The end.
