Hey Sparkles. I went and saw a new movie in theatres. The film is entitled “The Star.”
About this movie:
This movie is about Jesus’ birth story, and a ditsy donkey named Bo is the main character.
Positive aspects of “The Star.”
- A hint at another part of the Bible story – Elizabeth saying to Zachariah, “I liked you better when you COULDN’T talk!”
- Always coming back and focusing on the star.
- Kid-Friendly plot.
- Christmas carol underscores matches perfectly with the action.
- Great animation.
- Awe-inspiring message.
- Cute characters – see below.
- The perfect balance between reverence and irreverence.
Main Character List “The Star.”
