Chrissa Doll!!!

Chrissa, Girl of 2009

Chrissa, Girl of 2009

Today, as I went onto American Girl Collecting, I noticed that the blogger had a picture of Chrissa up! She is scheduled to come out on January 6th, 2009. Below is the idea of her books, and the struggles she’s going through.

Chrissa and her family have just moved to a new town in the middle of the school year. On the first day of school, she is seated next to three girls. All these girls do is tease her and play tricks on her. They bully her in class, on the bus, online, and at swim club. When the biggest bully becomes her swimming rival, she has to find a way to stick up for herself. Can she do it?

Julie: An American Girl Musical =)

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?
