After Ferdinand, a bull with a big heart, is mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure.
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
The Star is produced by Affirm Films, a company under Sony that produces and distributes mainly conservative Christian films. See more »

These wise guys are lost!
Wise men don't get lost, Felix.
So you're saying they know where this birthday party is?
And what makes you so certain it's a birthday party?
Oh, here we go.
Have you seen the presents these guys are bringing? Gold? Myrrh? Frankincense?
Could be a baby shower. You bring presents to a baby shower.
Baby shower? What's a baby going to do with frankincense, silly camel? It's a birthday party!

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 »
We took our 5 year old and 3 year old to see it today. It was great! They loved it. It kept their attention the whole time. They got the humorous parts and it told a pretty solid Biblical Christmas Story. It wasn't too cheesy for us adults either. Although our family does celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas, I think children of all faiths can enjoy this movie. It's not too preachy nor does it push any "religious agenda."
