A talented young gymnast turns trials into triumphs in the inspiring new feature-length movie, An American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars(TM).

McKenna Brooks(TM) is a determined and confident young gymnast in this all-new modern-day adventure. She is on track to make the regional competitive gymnastics team, but off-track in school where she's suddenly struggling to keep up. When McKenna's(TM) 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(TM) 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.

An American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars(TM) arrives on Blu-ray(TM) Combo Pack, DVD, and Digital Download on July 3, 2012, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
