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.Written by

Hold it right there, camels!
[the camels act scared]
I bet they can play that game we made up.
That was fun. What was it called again?
On three. One... two... three!
[They bark at the camels. Cryus hops onto Debra's back. Felix hops onto Cyrus. Debra loses balance and falls over. The dogs laugh]

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 »
One of the best animated films I have seen lately. The idea of the Christmas Story seen through the eyes of the animals was totally a new angle on the story and a wonderful inspiration for children and adults.
Although there is obvious evidence of artistic right in the story, (has to be with talking animals) it does follow along with the heart and written encounters of Baby Jesus family journey to His birth in Bethlehem.
I will be going this week for second viewing and checking with friends and family about borrowing some children to take with me. I want every child I know to see this.
As soon as it becomes available on DVD my order will be placed. I have 4 groups of children I will be encouraging to have their parents take them to see this. Movie night at my house will have several showings of this movie.
