About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "The Star" delivers a fresh take on a story that its Christian target audience presumably knows by heart, emphasizing such qualities as faith, friendship and teamwork in the process.
Fresh: While the movie never soars or burns especially bright, it delivers a modicum of magic without getting pious or gushy.
Rotten: The movie is sincerely Christian in its outlook, while also a slapstick animal 'toon. It's a mix that works only intermittently. But when it doesn't pop, it thuds.
Rotten: Drifting through brainless slapstick, mixed metaphors, moral high ground and back again, it is the latest entry in a recent procession of communion bread and circuses.
The greatest story ever told of the first Christmas and baby Jesus! Even if your not catholic and don’t celebrate Christmas you should at least go see it for fun!
One of the best movies I have seen in a long time. The story and the animation was awesome!!!!
An excellent retelling of The True Story of Christmas that both children and adults can enjoy.
