In The Star, a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day Bo finds the courage to break free and ends up befriending newlyweds Joseph and Mary. Mary’s kindness soon sets Bo 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 one of the most famous stories ever recorded – the first Christmas.
The Star is directed by Timothy Reckart from a screenplay by Carlos Kotkin. It is produced by Jenni Magee Cook.
The film features an all-star soundtrack including songs from Mariah Carey, Fifth Harmony, Kelsea Ballerini, Jake Owen and Zara Larsson.
