COMMENTS: THE ANIMATED COMEDY ADVENTURE "THE STAR" EXPLORES THEMES OF LOVE, MUSIC, COMEDY, FRIENDSHIP, CARING, FAITH, TEAMWORK, CELEBRATION, JOY AND THE BIRTH OF CHRIST. THEMES ARE PLEASANT, LIGHT-HEARTED AND INSPIRATIONAL AND CONTAIN MESSAGES ABOUT KINDNESS, REDEMPTION AND REMORSE. THEMES ARE PRESENTED SENSITIVELY, FANTASTICALLY (CONTAINING TALKING ANIMALS) AND OFTEN IN A HUMOROUS TONE. THEMES ARE UNLIKELY TO BE DISTURBING, HARMFUL, UPSETTING OR INAPPROPRIATE FOR ANY CHILDREN, BUT THERE IS A LOW SENSE OF THREAT AND MENACE PRESENT DUE TO KING HEROD'S DOGS AND THEIR HANDLER PURSUING MARY. HOWEVER, IT IS IN THE CONTEXT OF A STORY THAT MANY SMALL CHILDREN ALREADY HEARD, AND THERE IS A POSITIVE RESOLUTION WITH THE DOGS SHOWING REMORSE AT THE END. PARENTAL GUIDANCE IS ADVISED FOR CHILDREN UNDER 7 YEARS OF AGE TO HELP EXPLAIN CONTEXT AND TO PROVIDE REASSURANCE.
