Fans of Detroit’s American Girl Doll Melody Ellison will get to see her character come to life later this month when Amazon unveils its first original, live-action special about the fictional civil rights-era girl.
The special, titled “An American Girl Story — Melody 1963: Love Has to Win,” will be released Oct. 21 on Prime Video in the United States and United Kingdom, Amazon representatives said in a news release Monday. It is the first of four planned American Girl specials.
The story stars Marsai Martin of “Blackish” as Melody, a 10-year-old Detroiter who discovers the depths of racial inequality after learning about the 1963 Birmingham Church bombing, Amazon officials said.
“As a result, her belief in the ‘indivisible’ promise of our country’s Pledge of Allegiance comes into question as she challenges her teacher on the validity of this, given the horrific tragedy,” officials said. “After an emotional journey of self-reflection, her mother gives her the courage she needs by instilling in her that love brings out the best in everyone.”
