The Star in Theaters Nov. 17th Plus Giveaway #Sponsored #TheStarMovie

I will receive promotional items for The Star. All opinions are mine.

It's a family tradition to read the story of the first Christmas and watch our favorite holiday movies.  This year, we're excited about a new movie from Sony Pictures, The Star, in theaters this Friday, Nov. 17th, that gives a fresh take on the first Christmas.

In Sony Pictures Animation's The Star, a small but brave donkey named Bo (Steven Yeun) 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 (Aidy Bryant), a loveable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave (Keegan-Michael Key), a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels (Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Tracy Morgan) and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become unlikely heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.
