American Girl Movie- “Saige Paints The Sky”

Well, today is the day! Saige’s all new movie is now available for purchase!
While I am excited to see it I’m not sure if it will be that great. From the trailer I’ve seen, it doesn’t seem like the girl who plays Saige is very good at acting. Although when I see it I might give it to her since it is her first movie- Hehe!

I don’t knowΒ when I’ll get to see it because we can’t really afford that right now, but when I do see it I’ll definitely do a movie review! πŸ˜€

So, what do you think of the movie? Do you think you’ll watch it? When/if you do, do you think you’ll like it?

  • I hope to watch it!! But I don’t know if I will. I would probably rather watch the Mckenna movie, which I haven’t watched. If we did watch it, I’m sure we would criticize it, which we do about a lot of things. But that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t like it.

    • You’d rather watch Mckenna’s movie?
      The guys in our family are super movie critics! But me and my mom like almost everything- LOL!
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Well, yes, I think so. It just seems better. Although I think the Chrissa movie is the worst of the three(even though I haven’t watched any of them. :P)I mean, I really don’t care about bullying. It probably is a problem in public school, but I am not public schooled. :) :)
        LOL!

        • I think Saige’s sounds better, but its’ ok :)
          I’ve only seen Samantha, Felicity, and Molly. Out of those 3 Molly’s is the worst! Hehe!
          Yeah, me either. I would still like to see it someday, though πŸ˜›
          ~Jaclynn~

  • And I think her hair is too red. πŸ˜›

  • I’ve seen the movie at the premiere and I loved it! You should get it!

    • Really?
      Yeah, I probably will soon, but like I said- we can’t really afford that right now :(
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Hi Jaclynn,

    Yes I Am going to the store and buying it today!! My mom is taking me!! Yay!! I am really excited to see it tonight!!! Yeah I hope the actress knows how to act!! Hahaha! Lol! Do you want me to post a comment about it when I see it?
    An American girl fan forever,
    Grace

    • How fun! Have a wonderful time :)
      LOL! Same here- the acting makes the movie πŸ˜‰
      Sure! I’d love to know what you think of it :)
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Although I don’t really know bad actors when I see them, so that wouldn’t bother me. But in our family, we like things that are realistic. That is what we criticize. πŸ˜‰

  • Oh, and btw, I don’t remember if you watched the Molly movie or not, but Linda was badly portrayed in the Molly movie. She was all chubby and her face was NOT like Linda’s face. πŸ˜›

    • Yes, I did a long time ago.
      Oh, really? I’m sorry, but I’ve never read the books so I don’t what she’s supposed to look like or even who she is! LOL! πŸ˜›
      But the girl who plays Gabi in the Saige movie is dark skinned with curly hair- in the books she’s supposed to have wavy/straight brown hair, and white skin. I’m a bit disappointed in the casting πŸ˜‰
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Oh, wow! You didn’t read the Molly books? Interesting. Well, Linda is Molly’s friend.
        Oh, that’s too bad. I haven’t read the Saige books because they are not at our library. πŸ˜› They don’t even have the Mckenna books or the Caroline books! πŸ˜›

        • No, I have no interest in her- hehe! πŸ˜› Oh, ok!
          Yeah, I know.
          Really? That’s sad! Saige’s and Caroline’s books are SO good, too! I like Caroline’s better, though πŸ˜€
          ~Jaclynn~

          • hehe!
            I know! But more than that, it is annoying! I mean, I would like to read the books. And I am NOT going to buy them-they are way to short and not good enough to buy. I would rather read other books, but I would still like to read the AG books.

          • Wait- Not good enough to buy?? Oh, my gosh! AG’s books are awesome!! LOL!
            You should read the books someday :)
            ~Jaclynn~

  • I forgot all about Saige’s movie! I don’t really like the girl who plays Saige either! But I think I’ll like the movie, because I watched the movie clips and from what I could tell, it seems like a good movie. But I wasn’t very happy with the casting once I read the books, because there are a few people who don’t even resemble their characters! But that might just be me.
    I know I’ll watch it, but I’m just not sure when. Unless redbox has it, then I know I’ll watch it pretty soon here!
    ~Carli

    • Really? I’ve been thinking about it a lot actually πŸ˜€
      Yeah, it does seem like it will be good, but I don’t know if it will be great- you know what I mean?
      I SO agree! The girl who plays Gabi is the worst. Looks nothing like her! Ugh! πŸ˜›
      Hehe! Yeah, my mom says we’ll probably rent it. Our BlockBuster closed, though so I’ll have to check our RedBox πŸ˜‰
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Yeah, I don’t know, why, but now I can’t stop thinking about it! πŸ˜€
        Yes I do. But I think one of the things that bothers me the most with this movie, is that they picked an actress who has never acted in a movie before and gave her the lead. I don’t know why that bothers me, but I think it almost makes the movie a little less enjoyable sometimes. But I like all the other acters, like I really like Tessa and Dylan, I think they did a good job on them.
        I know! She’s supposed to have strait hair, and white skin, not curly hair and black skin! And have you noticed that Gabi is wearing really funky clothes, and stuff like that? I think it’s supposed to be her personality, but I still don’t like it.
        Yeah, we’ll either have to rent it, or I’ll buy it with my own money at Walmart or somthing like that.
        ~Carli

        • Hehe! Me, either! πŸ˜›
          Oh, yeah- I understand that. They should’ve chosen somebody with more experience. But then how is somebody supposed to become an actor/actress if they never have a first movie? πŸ˜‰
          Yeah, Tessa and Dylan look good!
          Exactly! It totally bothers me! Yes, I have noticed that.
          Hehe! I know what you mean. I don’t really like that style much πŸ˜€
          ~Jaclynn~

          • Yeah, I think it makes the movie a little bit more enjoyable, but from what I’ve seen from the clips, she seems like an okay actress. But hopefully it will still be good :)
            Yeah, you think they would get someone who looks a little bit more like her! But I bet they chose this girl because she was a better actress or something like that, because when I watched the new Les Miserable, they had an actress with blonde hair, even though her mother had brown hair, and they chose her because she could sing better.
            Yeah I don’t either.
            ~Carli

          • I hope it will be :)
            I know, right?
            Oh, maybe- but still! It’s annoying to those who have read the books and seen the pictures! LOL!
            ~Jaclynn~

  • Yeah, I’m excited about it, but it looks a little corny or cheesy and like you said, the girl that plays Saige doesn’t look like she’s very good at acting.

    ~Madison

    • Yeah, just a little. I think Mimi will be good because the lady who plays her is a good actress. But also Mimi doesn’t seem to act how she acts in the books so I’m just not sure πŸ˜›
      Yeah, She seems like she’s trying to hard to act. πŸ˜‰
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Sorry if I am bugging you, but are you going to reply to my emails soon? And also, are you going to change the pic of the month? Again, sorry if I am bugging you! :)

    • Don’t worry- you’re not bugging me :)
      My mom is letting me use her computer now so I will reply to as many as I can :)
      Hmm- That I don’t know when I’ll do.. It will be kinda hard to do πŸ˜‰
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Lol! Exactly! But the nice thing about Les Miserable, is that in the book, there aren’t any pictures! Hehe! πŸ˜€
    ~Carli

  • And another thing that’s differant about the movie, is Saige has the ring that Tessa gave her at the start of the movie, instead of Tessa making, and then giving the ring to Saige! But that’s not as big as Gabi, but it still bothers me.
    ~Carli

    • Oh my gosh! I didn’t even notice that! Now that’s going to drive me crazy- LOL!
      ~Jaclynn~

      • I know! It’s a small thing, but still! Have you seen Saige’s movie clips at AG’s website? If you haven’t, here’s the link:
        http://www.americangirl.com/play/girl-of-the-year/saige/#page=movie
        That’s how I found out about the ring, and learned a little bit about the actresses πŸ˜‰
        ~Carli

        • I clicked on the link, watched one and started to watch another when my computer decided to freeze!! LOL! The one I watched looked good though! :)
          ~Jaclynn~

          • Lol! My computer and I have a love hate relationship. Mainly because it often decides to say it’s not connected to the Internet, so I have to restart the whole computer, on order to get it to reconnect with Internet!! Thats good! :)
            ~Carli

          • Yeah, I don’t have that problem (luckily) but other things happen where it just completely freezes, I can’t do anything, and I have to end up turning off the computer and turing it on again. Lately it seems like I’ve been doing it a lot. It may have to do with the fact that we need to do some updates on the computer πŸ˜›
            ~Jaclynn~

  • BTW… I was on Redbox this afternoon, and I just randomly searched ‘an american girl: Saige paints the sky’, and they have it! So mom’s going to Redbox as I type to get the it for us to watch tonight!!! I’ll tell you about it after I watch it!
    ~Carli

  • Okay, so it’s WAY differant than the books. But I still think it was pretty good.
    So to start the things that I liked, the girl who plays Saige, I think did a pretty good job for this being her first movie, Jane Seymour portrayed Mimi very well in my opinion, and there were some really good scenes in the movie.
    Now onto the things that bothered me the most were that Saige looks a little too old to be 9, she looks more like she’s 12, they made Dylan a little more rude than in the books, Gabi sounded like she was younger than the rest of the girls, like she was 7 or 8, there were a lot of things that they changed in the movie like Saige’s inspiration for The Day of Beige, The Day of Beige, the parade (no Professer Picasso :( ), the Balloon Fiesta, and they didn’t include her birthday. And the last thing that bothered me was Saige rode Georgia instead of Picasso. But despite all that it was pretty good.
    ~Carli
    P.S. LOL!

    • Really? That’s disappointing! :(
      Ok, that’s good to hear! Hehe!

      Yeah, from the preview she looks like a 12 year old with a 9 year old voice! LOL! πŸ˜›
      Hmm.. that’s sad :(
      NO PROFESSOR PICASSO?!?!?!? What in the world??? I am SO mad right now! UGH!!! :'(
      They didn’t show her birthday??? That part ws so sweet! But wait, I remember there being a picture of Saige and the girls in a hot air balloon and she was in her Sparkle Dress… Did they just change it or it really wasn’t in there?
      Well, that’s true! She did ride Georgia in the entire second book.
      Ugh- honestly now I’m not that excited to see it! :(
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Lol! Exactly!
    Nope. I know! I was pretty upset about this, but I think they didn’t do it because it’d be hard to find a horse that could do all the things that Saige and Gabi taught Picasso. Much less one that could do all the tricks and looks like Picasso!
    They changed it. The Balloon Fiesta was right after the parade, and instead of bringing Mimi up, she brought Tessa, Gabi, and Dylan up. That kinda bothers me because in the books they say that a hot air ballon can only hold 3 people or something like that but in the movie there were 5 people!
    Yeah, but that didn’t bother me that much because they only showed Georgia once!
    I still think you should see it though! This is just my opinion, and in spite of everything, I think I’d like to watch it again :)
    ~Carli

    • Yeah, I guess, but still! That was like one of the biggest parts in that book! UGH! :(
      Are you kidding me? They really should have had her birthday/ Yeah, that bothers me, too. I hope I like the movie when I see it. I was really looking forward to a new AG movie :(
      What?? Only once?? This is just unacceptable! LOLOLOL! πŸ˜›
      Ok, well, I’ll take your word for it and I will try to find a chance to watch it soon :)
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Yeah, so the movie’s more focased on her learning the parade gait, and some trick riding.
    I know, they really should have! I was too :( But I have heard that the GOTY of 2014 will have a movie, I’m not sure on that one though.
    LOLOL! I know! Georgia is a big part of the second book! But they didn’t really show Saige riding that much, except for once, she was riding with Mimi. And all the other times, she was riding Picasso.
    That’s good. Do you not have Redbox down there?
    ~Carli

    • Ok, well I hope I like it πŸ˜›
      Really? So I guess they are going to start making movies for all of the GOTY’s then. I wish they would make some more Historical ones instead! :(
      She is! Wait, do you mean in the book or in the movie? I got a little confused- hehe! πŸ˜€
      No, we do! We have one right around the corner from us actually! We’re just kind of lazy and put things off- LOLOL! πŸ˜€
      ~Jaclynn~

  • I guess, but I kinda wish they would’ve made a movie for Kanani. I think that would’ve been good. But I think the main problem would’ve been her hair…
    I know! I LOVE the HC movies! And they never make them anymore! :( I’ve heard a rumer about Julie movie coming out, but they said it was supposed to come out in Summer 2012, so I don’t think they’re going to make one.
    She’s a big part of the second book, and in the movie they only show Saige riding Georgia once, and the 3 other times she rode, she was riding Picasso.
    LOL! πŸ˜€
    ~Carli

    • Yeah, her movie would’ve been good! I really liked her story :)
      Oh, yeah! Imagine trying to find a girl with that long of hair! LOL! Oh, wait- I would’ve been good- and probably closest they could get, too! I would love to be in an AG movie :)
      I know, right?!? They’re awesome!! Samantha’s is my favorite, though. I would think Felicity’s would be my favorite, but nope! I don’t know why either πŸ˜› Hehe
      Aw, man! It seems like her story would be good. I haven’t read any of her books, but I really want to! Julie is so cute :)
      That’s annoying! Georgia needs to be in it more! :(
      Hehe! πŸ˜€
      ~Jaclynn~
