Watch the trailer for Amazon's latest American Girl Story special, Ivy & Julie 1976: A Happy Balance

Posted on

Amazon Prime Video‘s American Girl Story series is once again set to transport viewers to a different year. The time and place in question? 1976 San Francisco.

The girls at the center of the latest special, An American Girl Story – Ivy & Julie 1976: A Happy Balance, are Ivy Ling and Julie Albright, each of whom is dealing with her own set of problems.

As you can see in the exclusive trailer, above, Ivy (BUNK’D‘s Nina Lu) is forced to choose between her passion for gymnastics and her familial obligations when the big meet she’s excited for is scheduled on the same night as her family’s Chinese New Year dinner, while BFF Julie (General Hospital‘s Hannah Nordberg) must deal with her parent’s not-so-cordial divorce.

This is the third American Girl Story special, following the Christmas-themed Maryellen 1955: Extraordinary Christmas and the civil rights-focused Melody, 1963: Love Has to Win.

An American Girl Story: Ivy & Julie 1976: A Happy Balance premieres Friday, March 24 on Prime Video.
