Universal Studios Home Entertainment is granting Walmart exclusive American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars a wide Blu-ray release on February 19, 2013. The inspirational family-oriented gymnastics film stars Jade Pettyjohn, Nia Vardalos, Ian Ziering and gymnastics champion Cathy Rigby.
Meet McKenna Brooks (Pettyjohn), 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.
The Blu-ray edition features a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track but no special features.
We've had this at our house since October 2012. My mom bought it at the American Girl store for my daughter's birthday. I've only seen bits and pieces while my daughter watches it but she loves it. If your kid is into gymnastics and/or American Girl dolls, she will like it to. Or if your kid ever got injured and had to put a hold on her sport while she recovered, this is good for them too.
