  • Synopsis


A small but brave donkey and his animal friends become the unsung heroes of the first Christmas.

An original concept by Tom Sheridan, The Star is another retelling of the famous Nativity story (which details the birth of Jesus), only told from the perspective of the various animals that were present for that event. The film is perhaps most noteworthy for its all-star voice cast, which includes the likes of Tyler Perry, Oprah Winfrey, Tracy Morgan, Christopher Plummer, Keegan Michael-Key, and more. Despite the A-list talent, The Star received mixed reviews from critics, though most have said it makes for fun holiday viewing thanks to its offbeat approach that never loses track of its original message.
