Reisen til julestjernen
20 February 2005 | by meeswatersSee all my reviews

This is a great Christmas story that I can't be without any Christmas. This is the story about a little princess who wishes for the Christmas star and goes out in the woods to find it on Christmas eve. She disappears from the kingdom and although us viewers knows where she is, the king doesn't. As the queen goes out to find her, the king cast a curse on the star and his queen disappears as well.

What the king does not know is that the count, who is the kings cousin, has something to do with this terrible happening and he makes the count feel more than welcome to be his closest man.

Many years later a girl called Sonja is travelling with a bunch of entertainers and after performing for the king she begs him for a chance to go out and find the star. Once again the count interferes but does he succeed again? Well, that is up to you to find out.

This is a fantastic movie for both children and grown ups where Sonja even meets Father Christmas on her way to find the star.

The problem is I don't know if it has been made for any other countries than the Scandinavian ones.....
