Let the Stars of The Star Shine for Your Family

Racing from an Saturday morning Birthday party for a classmate, we dashed and dodged raindrops into the shelter of our nearest movie theater for an afternoon screening of The Star. Settling into our seats, soggy yet satisfied, we had the pleasure of viewing one of the most charming family movies we've seen in quite some time. Bringing the animals' perspective to light, The Star is an animated tale delightfully featuring a lovable cast of animal friends following the lead of Bo, a small donkey with big dreams of greatness. We're excited to share the good news message that Dove Approved movie, The Star, is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download.

Thank you to the promotional team from The Star movie  for the courtesy of providing complimentary media provisions for #TheStarMovie editorial content purposes as a featured contributor of the Sony Pictures Animation's The Star Influencer Program.
