In the first 60-minute special, 13-year-old ski enthusiast Corinne Tan navigates her parents’ recent divorce while her 10-year-old sister, Gwynn, dad, mom, and stepdad Arne have adjusted to their new roles in this blended family. She discovers a new purpose when she challenges herself to train a rambunctious puppy named Flurry to become a search and rescue dog.

American Girl: Corinne Tan tells the inspirational story of a proud big sister as she comes to understand family, perseverance, and self-acceptance.

Also starring in the special is Miya‘s real life sister Kai as Corinne’s sister Gwynn and Michelle Krusiec as their mom Judy.

“Mattel Television is excited to partner with HBO Max and Cartoon Network to introduce our new American Girl special featuring 2022 Girl of the Year, Corinne Tan,” Fred Soulie, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mattel Television, shared in a statement. “Corinne is a strong role model, encouraging viewers to be their true, authentic selves. We are proud to bring her rich story to life and inspire television audiences of all ages.”

“The live-action specials announced today capture the sweetness, the funniness, the chaos, and the messy imperfect genius of growing up and becoming who you are. Let’s face it, most of us can still relate to all those feelings which makes this content so resonant,” Amy Friedman, head of kids & family programming, Warner Bros, added. “These projects are a reflection of our commitment to bring in more girls and teens to HBO Max and Cartoon Network with authentic, fun, courageous, and emotional stories that speak to kids lives now.”

American Girl: Corinne Tan will premiere on Cartoon Network in December 2022, followed by being released on HBO Max the next day. The second special will air in 2023.
