The DVD of the movie will hit stores December 6th--just in time for Christmas.

Elizabeth: New American Girl Doll

Also newly available is a new 18 inch American Girl doll, Elizabeth, Felicity's best friend. And, the American Girl Felicity line of products expands with an assortment of Felicity movie-related products, including Elizabeth's very own book,"Very Funny, Elizabeth." which is available now.

Felicity Introduced in 1991

Felicity was first introduced in 1991. She is a "spunky and spritely girl" growing up in Williamsburg, Virginia, at the start of the American Revolution. As with all the American Girl dolls, Felicity brings her specific time period--here, Colonial America--to life for an entire generation of girls. The very first girls who grew up with Felicity in the 1990s are now well into adulthood!

Felicity Discovers Her own Path

In Felicity: An American Girl Adventure, Felicity "struggles to stay both true to herself and her Patriot family while remaining best friends with Elizabeth Cole, whose family is loyal to the King. As the war with England draws closer, Felicity must find a way to hold both love and loyalty in her heart, and discover her own independent path" according to the American Girl web site.
