The Star – The Story Of The First Christmas

The Star tells the story of the very first Christmas told through the eyes of Bo, who feels he is destined for a life other than the daily grind of the village mill.

Directed by Timothy Reckartt, this animated retelling of the nativity story features new music from Mariah Carey, along with a host of famous stars doing the voice overs including:

• Steven Yeun – Bo the donkey
• Gina Rodriguez – Mary
• Zachary Levi – Joseph
• Keegan-Michael Key – Dave the dove
• Kelly Clarkson – Leah the horse
• Anthony Anderson – Zach the goat
• Aidy Bryant – Ruth the sheep
• Ving R Hames – Thaddeus the dog
• Gabriel Iglesias – Rufus the dog
• Patricia Heaton – Edith the cow
• Kristin Chenowet – Abby the mouse
• Christopher Plummer – King Herod
• Tracy Morgan – Felix
• Tyler Perry – Cyrus
• Oprah Winfrey – Deborah

The story unfolds as Bo finds the courage to break free and heads off on the adventure he’d always dreamed of. Along the way he teams up with a loveable sheep named Ruth, and Dave, a dove with high ambitions.

As the friends carry along their journey they meet up with Felix, Cyrus and Deborah – three wisecracking camels, and some unconventional stable animals. Bo and his new friends continue to follow the Star and become the improbable heroes in the first Christmas – the greatest story ever told!

The Star opens in the US on 10th November 2017 and in the UK on 24th November, 2017
