Disclosure: I was sent a either a copy of the DVD of The Star or was sent a copy of The Star Album from Flyby Promotions in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are 100% my own!
When I first found out about “The Star” Movie coming out in theaters back in December, I felt like we had to go see it. But of course we never got to because we were moving into our new home instead. But as soon as this movie came available for us to rent it online we sure did! The movie was a hit in our home and now we’d love to be able to have it in our home for our trips where we take long road trips and can watch the DVD in the van! Here is more information on the movie:
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.
