Felicity: An American Girl Adventure Giveaway
This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #130: Sarah!
In celebration of American Girl’s 25th anniversary, Warner Home Video (WHV) will release the full-length live-action movie, Felicity: An American Girl Adventure in a collectible, new deluxe edition. The film focuses on Felicity Merriman, a spirited and independent 10-year-old who lives in Williamsburg, Virginia around the time of the American Revolution. Felicity: An American Girl Adventure Deluxe Edition will be available in stores February 15, 2011 and will retail for $19.97 SRP. It will also be available for digital download.
When Felicity meets Penny, a beautiful copper-colored mare, she knows with all her heart that she must free Penny from her cruel owner. Felicity desperately wishes for that same sureness of heart about the rumors of revolution swirling through Williamsburg. Felicity’s father believes that the colonies should be free from England’s rule, but her beloved grandfather and her best friend Elizabeth both support the king. With fiercely conflicting loyalties dividing the colonists, something as simple as a cup of tea could divide Felicity from her best friend forever. As Christmas time draws near, Felicity struggles to hold her family and friends close, and to find ways for love and friendship to rise above the growing conflict.
Felicity: An American Girl Adventure stars Academy Award®-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden (Pollock, Mystic River) as Mrs. Merriman, John Schneider (Smallville) as Mr. Merriman and Shailene Woodley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) as Felicity Merriman.
“Felicity: An American Girl Adventure is a heartwarming, inspirational film that tells a beautiful story set during Colonial times,” said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation and Partner Brands Marketing. He added, “Felicity is a bright, courageous and endearing character that young girls, and viewers of all ages will enjoy. We are delighted to release this wonderful family film in a new deluxe edition.”
American Girl ranks as one of the top 25 consumer catalogues in the country. Since 1986, 18 million American Girl dolls and 132 million American Girl books have been sold. American Girl’s experiential retail stores have welcomed over 33 million visitors to date.

We had the opportunity to review Felicity: An American Girl Adventure and found it to be a great family movie. Not only is it appropriate for young girls but it’s also a wonderful way to expose my kids to events in history.
It’s also a great movie for girls who love horses or animals in general. My daughters are not big horse fans but they loved seeing the bond that Felicity had with her horse, Penny.
What I really liked about this movie is that is showed how families back then were divided by their political beliefs and how it affected their relationships. It teaches you that even though you may not always agree on the same things, you can still love one another. I feel that standing up for what you believe in is a very important message to share with girls.
This would be a great movie for any American Girl fan!
