Chelsea really enjoys getting to check out new feature films and even children’s television shows on DVD and BluRay. Chelsea just adored this film I loved that it was something that she will be able enjoy and learn at the same time. I just knew that she would truly love this film. We are presently in the process of moving so I knew that this would be a pleasant surprise for her. We haven’t really had much time for any fun activities.
From the studio that brought you MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN & CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS comes the timeless tale about faith, friendship, and the importance of believing in yourself.
AFFIRM Films and Sony Pictures Animation’s THE STAR arrives for the first time on Digital on February 6 and on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital February 20 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The heartwarming animated comedy follows a small but brave donkey named Bo (voiced by Steven Yeun, “The Walking Dead”), who 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 (voiced by Aidy Bryant, “Saturday Night Live”), a lovable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave (voiced by Keegan-Michael Key, Friends From College), a dove with lofty aspirations, along with three wisecracking camels voiced by
Tracy Morgan (“30 Rock”), Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey. Bo and his new friends follow the star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told.

I feel that this movie is definitely a great addition to anyone’s movie library. Chelsea and I truly love to sit down and enjoy different movies in our home. Sometimes it seems like we are constantly moving. Movie night is definitely a must in our home. We need that time to spend as a family.
