Get Ready for “The Star” Movie on Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital!

All opinions expressed herein are my own!

THE STAR is Available NOW on Digital

Coming to Blu-ray + DVD + Digital on February 20th

Over the holidays my husband was begging to take the kids to see THE STAR movie in theaters; but really, I’m not sure what he is talking about because we hardly ever go to the theater as a family anymore. {7 kids y’all} I am more of a Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital mom.  I like making themed snacks, printing color pages for the littles, tossing the pillows around the living room, and letting everyone enjoy a great family movie together in the comfort of my own home.  It is just so relaxing.  THE BONUS is that I get to add a great movie to our family’s personal library so the kids can watch it again, and again!  Are you ready to add THE STAR to your family’s movie library?

  • My grandkids can’t wait to see the movie. Thank you for the review.

  • Looks like a super cute movie. My niece and nephew would really enjoy this.

  • I think what won me over with wanting to see this movie was that it featured a new Mariah Carey song. I’ve always been a big fan of animated films. It’s especially exciting that Oprah Winfrey’s in this one. Remember her in Disney’s ‘The Princess & The Frog’? I’m so glad she’s gotten back into acting!

  • Haven’t heard too much about this movie yet, thanks for sharing.

  • You know, I had forgotten about this movie, but it looks so cute. I need to find it and watch it.

  • This looks like a great movie for the whole family to enjoy. I love these kinds of animated movies!
