The much anticipated An American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars will be out this summer – specifically on DVD & Blu-Ray on July 3 and then July 14 at 8pm on NBC right before the Olympics. The trailer for the movie is out and can be on YouTube.

The official movie synopsis:

Meet McKenna Brooks™, a determined and confident young gymnast, in this all-new modern-day adventure. McKenna™ is on track to make the regional competitive gymnastics team but off-track in school, where she’s suddenly struggling to keep up. When her teacher suggests a tutor, she’s embarrassed and desperate to keep it a secret from her friends. Then a bad fall at the gym sidetracks her from her favorite sport. Will she recover in time to make the team? Can she succeed in school, too? McKenna™ needs to focus on her strengths to overcome her challenges – and, with the help of family and friends, find a way to believe in herself again.

Ok, what do you think? I think it is going to be very popular!
