If you say the two words American and Girl next to each other you will hear squealing at a very high decibel in our house.  If they open a package with the new American Girl movie "Isabelle Dances Into the Spotlight" along with the soundtrack, poster, doll tee and other goodies - well, I hope you bought earplugs in advance.

The girls immediately put the doll tee on "Elizabeth" and dressed the Bitty Twin in her fanciest tutu to have a sleepover with friends and watch the new flick.

American Girl Isabelle Movie

This American Girl movie is based on the 2014 Girl of the Year, Isabelle.  Isabelle is a Washington DC area dancer who gets accepted into a performing arts school and feels like she is in the shadow of her big sister.  My daughters are both on their studio's dance team and want to audition for the Nutcracker this year.  They can really relate to Isabelle and the theme of this movie but really any girl who is working towards a goal and trying their best will see themselves in Isabelle.

The day of the sleepover finally arrived and the girls could not hold in their excitement.  They all piled into bed with their dolls and watched.

Despite the movie running way past their bedtime, they were completely engrossed in the movie.

All of our girls loved the movie.  So much that they've watched it at least half a dozen times since.

Isabelle Dances Into the Spotlight is now available on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD.  American Girl has recently debuted a few new Isabelle items to celebrate the release of the movie.  You can visit AmericanGirl.com/girloftheyear to see everything Isabelle!

Also, this Saturday, August 9th at 7pm EST, Isabelle Dances Into the Spotlight is on the Disney Channel.  Have your daughter grab some girlfriends, pop the popcorn and get ready for a night of fun!

Huge thanks to American Girl and Universal Studios Home Entertainment for sending over these goodies for the girls.
