Have you had a chance to see the movie, The Star yet? We are watching it Friday night for our family movie night! I’m so excited to share this sweet movie with my children.
The Star is a heartwarming tale about a donkey named Bo, he goes on a grand adventure and meets many quirky animals along the way. The greatest adventure of all was when he accidentally becomes a hero in one of the most amazing stories ever told! So many amazing actors and actresses voice the characters in this movie, including Tyler Perry, Gina Rodriguez, Kelly Clarkson, Oprah Winfrey, Kristin Chenoweth and many more!
I love that we can share the story of Jesus’s birth with our children through a fun animated movie like this. It’s full of fun music, silly animals and most importantly… one of the greatest stories ever told.
There are some great bonus materials included with the DVD (which is NOW available to purchase, click any image in this post to find out how). There is a sing-along with Bo and his friends, a dance-along to “Life Is Good”, lyric sing-alongs with five of the songs from the movie (including “The Star” by Mariah Carey). You’ll also fine instructions for Sweet and Sparkly Star cookies, a craft activity to make star mason jar votives… and the list goes on!
You will even find a children’s sermon discussing The Star and how you can keep the story of Jesus’s birth alive in our hearts EVERY day. What’s REALLY neat is that we have been provided with a family friendly weekly bible study by DeVon Franklin, just click the image below to head to the Facebook page post from The Star Movie to find out how to download it today!
It’s a fun interactive way for your kids to learn more, try it out! I will share my thoughts on the movie in a future blog post after we watch it this weekend. I have no doubt that it will be a movie we love to watch for years to come! Buy your copy soon, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this movie as well! God Bless!
