About The Star Movie
The Star movie is about Bo, who is bored with his life at the village mill, so one day he runs away.
Along the way he collects friends–Ruth, a sheep, and Dave, a dove, and three “wise-cracking” camels named Deborah, Cyrus, and Phoenix (along with some other stable animals).
Bo and his friends soon find themselves in a serious situation when they need to warn Mary of King Herod’s intention.
According to the film’s synopsis, “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.”
