Currently in production at Cinesite’s studios in Montreal, Sony Pictures Animation’s computer-animated feature THE STAR is directed by Oscar nominee Timothy Reckart (HEAD OVER HEELS); executive produced by DeVon Franklin, Lisa Henson, and Brian Henson; produced by Jenni Magee Cook; and written by Carlos Kotkin and Simon Moore. Scheduled for a November 10, 2017 theatrical release, it is the first collaboration between Cinesite Studios and Sony Pictures Animation.
THE STAR tells the story of 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 accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.
