The Sony Pictures animation The Star will be released in South African cinemas on Friday, November 17. The film is about 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 loveable 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 unlikely heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.
Directed by Tim Reckhart and produced by Jenni Magee-Cook, the movie cast includes Oprah Winfrey (Deborah), Steven Yeun (Bo the donkey), Gina Rodriguez (Mary), Tyler Perry (Cyrus), Levi (Joseph), Keegan-Michael Key (Dave the dove), Kelly Clarkson (Leah the horse), Anthony Anderson (Zach the goat) and Aidy Bryant (Ruth the sheep), among others.
