First, don’t forget that An American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars comes out on DVD tomorrow – that’s July 3 at Walmart, American Girl stores and via digital download at Amazon. Second – it looks like McKenna movie star Jade Pettyjohn had fun meeting Olympic gymnasts and signing autographs for fans this past weekend in San Jose, CA at the 2012 US Olympic Trials for Gymnastics.

In celebration of the upcoming release, here is a new gymnastics-themed clip from the film – which was HANDS DOWN the favorite scene in the movie according to my daughter and her guests when we watched it last week:
