Variety - Peter Debruge
As kid-friendly Christmas movies go, this one actually goes out of its way to remind what the holiday represents, which should please parents looking for something a little more sophisticated (but just barely) than the VeggieTales cartoons.
IGN - William Bibbiani
If you can get past the many bizarre inconsistencies, The Star is a relatively decent film for young Christian audiences. The writing, voice-acting and animation are unremarkable, but they get the job done, and the film’s heart seems to be in the right place.
The Hollywood Reporter - Sheri Linden
The movie delivers a modicum of magic without getting pious or gushy. It never soars, though, or burns especially bright.
Washington Post - Unnamed
The movie is sincerely Christian in its outlook, while also a slapstick animal ’toon. It’s a mix that works only intermittently. But when it doesn’t pop, it thuds.
Los Angeles Times - Katie Walsh
It's a serviceable animated movie appropriate for the season, but there's nothing beyond its source material that marks it as particularly unique or special.

The Star (2017)

A small but brave donkey and his animal friends become the unsung heroes of the greatest story ever told, the first Christmas.
