At just 12 years old, Oscar® nominee Abigail Breslin is doing something millions of little girls only dream of. She's bringing one of the most popular American Girl dolls to life on the big screen!

In Kit Kittredge: An American Girl—produced by Oscar® winner Julia Roberts—Abigail stars as Kit, a precocious young girl growing up during the Great Depression who dreams of becoming a newspaper reporter.

She's not the only famous face in the film. Willow Smith, the 7-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, plays Countee, Kit's lovable sidekick.
