Storyline

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.

Crazy Credits

Despite being distributed by Columbia Pictures, the Columbia Pictures logo does not appear until the end credits. The logo itself has the same background as the Affirm Films logo. However, the possible reason the Columbia Pictures and Affirm Films logos were cut was due to Columbia's big schedule. Same said for Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018). See more »

23 March 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It is real special. for the inspired speech about Christian faith in the era of globalisation. for animation itself. for the perspective, not new but in wise manner used, of the Birth of Jesus in the eyes of animals. for songs. and for humor. it represents one of source of hope in the time of political corecteness. because it reminds small, essential values. because it gives a touching - precise message about the fundamental importance of faith. and, sure, for the admirable courage to be a confession because, in the age of relativisation, "The Star" becomes a honest remind of the basic Christian Truth.
