It Takes Many Tails To Tell The Greatest Story Ever

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 loveable 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.

Critic Reviews:

  • “All told, The Star should be a safe bet for families during the upcoming holiday season.” – Newsday
  • “Easily the most slapstick version of the Nativity story ever made and one that finally pays tribute to the critical part played by all the talking animals at the manger on that night.” – 3AW
  • “A sweet and often (tastefully) funny story of The Nativity told from the perspective of the animals involved.” – Quad City Times
