Julie will be the next American Girl doll to have a movie. The information below is from American Girl Collecting.
At a recent press day for Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas confirmed that there are indeed plans for more American Girl movies in the pipeline.
The next American Girl to see her story make it to film? Julie Albright. “We are developing the Julie character,” Goldsmith-Thomas said, “and we’re doing her as a musical, as a high school musical.”
“We’re going to have all those great songs from the ’70s,” she continued. “Julie: An American Girl Musical. It’s [set] in San Francisco.”
The movie is just in outline form as of now, so Goldsmith-Thomas was unable to confirm much more about it, but she did say the music will include both original songs written for the movie as well as music from the 1970s, and that they intend to do more open auditions like they did for Kit Kittredge. “Oh, you betcha,” she said.
This is very exciting! I can’t wait to hear who’s going to play Julie! What do you think about this news?
Kit, An American Girl Mystery, is very intriguing with a good plot, although it didn’t stick to the real storyline. Once Francis and Florence have to leave their home because they can’t pay the rent, everything starts breaking into pieces. Kit has to let boarders stay in her house, and sell eggs to make money. Kit’s dad has to go to Chicago to find work, which is like the book in some ways.
I would give the movie 3 1/2 stars out of 4. It had a very good plot, but was a bit disappointing that it wasn’t a lot like the book. What did you think about the movie? If you didn’t see it, do you want to see it?
