In Sony Pictures Animation's The Star, a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a lovable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.

  • This was a GREAT movie

    By Just remember God
    I really liked this movie. I wanted to preview it before I showed my kids. I love the different view point of the movie. It was from the animals viewpoint instead of the was was cute...and's the story of our Lord and Saviors birth (what better story can you have ? :) I actually hope they can make similar movies for other biblical stories...but just make sure they all stay PG so the kids can enjoy them too (please) I read someone elses review thinking that it was a joke that a donkey was the main player in the movie...but wasn't it a donkey who carried Jesus into town once before ?

    Finally a story that tells the TRUE story of the origin of Christianity. Makes WAAAAAAAY WAAAAAAY WAAAAAY more sense than any sunday school class I ever attended. Thank you Sony Pictures for setting the world straight. God bless all of the animal actors who will undoubtedly make it to heavan based on their cinematic efforts alone! Praise HIM!

  • I really don’t want this in my life

    By Lillys39
    Why? Nobody asked for Sony to make a joke out of the BIRTH OF CHRIST ITSELF! I really feel disrespected by this movie. I’m not sure a DONKEY was an important player in the birth of Christ!
  • Loved it

  • Comedy and religion are hard to mix

    By JeffreyCatz
    This movie lacked so many things, the characters were not cute nor were they interesting, the jokes were horrible, the story was ehh. Over all it felt really dry, comedy and religion are hard to mix and this movie is an excellent example of that.
