Lea To The Rescue: Movie Review

IMG_0244Hello everyone! It’s Brianna here with a movie review of the newest American Girl movie ‘Lea to the Rescue’ that came out Tuesday, June 14th, 2016.


  • Amazing scenery such as Brazilian Mountains, Amazon Rain forest, and others.
  • They also speak in Portuguese in the movie and an ancient native language once in a while in the movie.
  • Tension. This movie is full of tension from people being chased by poachers, to her brother being kidnapped.


  • Sometimes they don’t tell you what the English translation is for non – English words in the movie, so it is a little hard to tell what is going on. Though, that only happens once or twice, so it isn’t a big deal.

In most of the movie, Lea wears her ‘rainforest hike outfit’ but they also show her meet dress, celebration outfit, Bahia shirt, and pajamas.  We didn’t seen the swimwear.

Some people who star in this movie are:

  • Maggie Elizabeth Jones as Lea Clark
  • Storm Reid as Aki
  • Hallie Todd as Mrs. Clark
  • Laysla De Oliveira as Paula Ferreira
  • Connor Dowds as Zac Clark
  • Sean Cameron Michael as Ricardo Carvalho
  • Rehane Abrahams Officer Adriana Costa
  • Kevin Otto as Rick Clark

On a scale of one to ten, one being horrible and 10 being amazing. I would rate this movie a 9.  Kids in lower elementary might find the “bad guys” and chase scenes scary.

I hope you get to see Lea To The Rescue, it’s a very special, one of a kind American Girl Movie. I hope you enjoyed my post!
