While I had American Girl dolls growing up (boy howdy, did I), I was too old to enjoy Kit Kittredge—the spunky depression era girl from Cincinnati. Obviously, having grown up in a ‘burb of Cincinnati, my inner-child feels wounded and offended that this doll was not introduced earlier.
At any rate, I am—unabashedly—excited for the first American Girl motion picture with Abigail Breslin starring as Kit. The trailer invokes memories of Corrina, Corrina and Matilda (which I may or may not have watched on ABC Family Sunday evening). I’m relatively certain that a cast that includes Breslin, Chris O’Donnell, Jane Krakowski, Jane Cusack, and Stanley Tucci cannot go wrong. Especially not Stanley Tucci.
