It’s November, which means it’s officially time for Christmas movies! Among this year’s releases is a fun little nativity story called The Star premiering November 17 in theaters nationwide.

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 loveable 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 unlikely heroes in the greatest story ever told the first Christmas.

Check out the movie website for all kinds of goodies including an animated coloring book, behind the scenes videos, and even a chance to win a trip to New York.

If nothing else, visit the website just because it’s a really cool website.

  1. I saw it last month. I loved the animation and the soundtrack is outstanding! I can forgive some creative license in the story. A word of caution, though, is that one part of the story may be a bit frightening for very little ones. My great-grandkids are all under 3, so I prefer them to be older. I do hope to get the soundtrack for me, though!
    My 22 y/o granddaughter was surprised that she enjoyed it. We took her 3 nieces ( (7, 9, & 11) and they loved it.
