American Girl: Saige Paints the Sky. Available on July 2,

The movie introduces nine-year-old Saige, a talented artist with a
passion for horses, in this modern-day story about finding one's voice.
Saige is excited about the new school year until she discovers that
art—her favorite class—has been cut. On top of that, her best friend,
Tessa, is spending more and more time with another girl. For support,
Saige turns to her grandma Mimi (Seymour), a well-known artist and
horsewoman, who inspires her to take action. Can Saige find the courage
to lead the fund-raising effort to start an after-school art program and
save her friendship with Tessa? Heartwarming, empowering, and fun, it's
a movie for every girl who has ever dreamed big.
To celebrate the debut of Saige Paints the Sky, American Girl is
hosting special screening events at select National CineMedia theaters
throughout the country, from July 8-11. American Girl fans can visit ncm.com/americangirl
