"The Star," directed by Academy Award-nominated writer/director Timothy Reckart ("Head Over Heels"), hits theaters nationwide on Nov. 17. The film is the first faith-based animation film to hit theaters on a mass scale since 1998 with "Prince of Egypt."
"Because it's the first one in [almost] 20 years, hopefully, this is a movie that can be a classic," Reckart told The Christian Post.
The film, according to its synopsis, follows "a small but brave donkey named Bo [who] 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 lovable 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."
