Journey to the Christmas Star is an enchanting movie that is perfect for all ages. Set in the cold winter of a faraway and magical land, a young girl, Sonja, vows to help her king and sets off in search for the Christmas Star, and in turn, will bring back the king's long lost daughter. It was this star the king had cursed nine years earlier when his daughter strayed out in the dead of night to obtain it and disappeared. Now, after all these years, Sonja sets out to find the star before it is too late to ever save the princess. Little does this courageous girl know, there are those in the castle who would rather not have the princess found, and danger follows her.

My whole family has agreed that Journey to the Christmas Star is now a part of our yearly Christmas movie repetoire. We loved all the beautiful scenery, the true feeling of the cold of winter, the magical gnomes, Father Christmas, the animal friends, and lest we forget, an evil witch...or two. This movie is a fantastical adventure!

Be rest assured that Journey to the Christmas Star is totally safe for your young children to enjoy - and they will. It has clean humor and no foul language - nothing crude or risque. It is a movie that the whole family can sit down and watch together. I wish that there were more movies like this that you can just sit and watch and not have to look up to see what kind of stuff is in it that you don't want your family to see.

I don't understand the low ratings by some reviewers. This is a "fantasy" movie intended for children and the young at heart. It promotes wholesome family values which are obviously politically incorrect for some people. Themes include honesty, generosity, personal-sacrifice, faith, hope and a steadfast spirit. This is the type of movie that American filmmakers have long forgotten how to make. Yes, it's a foreign (Norwegian) production, filmed in Norway and the Czech Republic. The dubbing is very well done and does not distract from the film. The young actress, Vilde Marie Zeiner, who plays Sonja, is a natural who never overacts, and is a cute little kid. There is a good amount of Norwegian cultural elements throughout which I found educational as well as entertaining - the scenes with the Gnomes are a prime example. The music by the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra is outstanding!
Don't hesitate to get this film. It's the type of Christmas movie that is heartwarming anytime of the year! Ignore the naysayers!

This moderately budgeted Norwegian film gives kids a mystical tale with lots of fantasy, some cute creatures, and for the adults, lots of incredible vistas and castles.

2012 release and dubbed in English, the story starts with a king's daughter, Golden Hair, who vanishes in the forest under a curse. Her father has 10 years to break the curse by finding the legendary Christmas Star, or the daughter will be lost forever. Enter the heroine, Sonya, a poor, street urchin who decides to take on the journey. She meets many incredible beings and helpers, e.g., tiny gnomes, a talking bear, North Wind, Father Christmas; however, evil forces, a raven witch, attempt to stop her.

Our kids were glued to this intense G rated story, geared towards children's love of magic and fantasy. I found most of the movie very well made; although, as an adult, not always holding my interest. The dubbing doesn't quite match up, hard to get English to pace with that Norwegian, but it's alright(nothing like those old kung-fu movies we used to laugh over). Also, being of Norwegian heritage, I wished they would have included the Norwegian version with subtitles.

A fairly short film, it runs about 73 minutes, and there are really no extras. Mildly stressful situations, but our youngsters(7 & 10) always felt things would work out and really enjoyed this film. They wanted more of the bear.

This is a wonderfully family friendly Christmas movie. There are just a couple moments of intensity that may be hard for sensitive children to see but all in all it's quite tame. This film is dubbed so the voices don't match what you see on screen but that didn't bother me. I found the sets, coatumes, casting etc all very enjoyable. I highly recommend this film for any family.

This is a Norwegian filmed dubbed in English and handled by the Disney Company. Younger children maybe will like the movie as it is a fairy tale of a young girl lost in the woods for ten years and cannot return home unless the Christmas Star is found before the ten years are up and it is up on Christmas Eve. Two flaws that really stand out are the voice of the young teen witch that sounds like a little child and the fake bear, which really looks fake. The one on the cover is real, but the one in the film is a very bad fake. The little girl who plays Sonja is very pretty and plays the role well. Children may enjoy this, but it may be a strain for adults.

A must see Christmas movie. It's almost Christmas, but there's no joy in the local village. It's in perpetual gloom e er since the king cursed the Christmas star. If the star isn't found soon, it is prophesied that the princess will be lost forever. Enter,orphan Sinja promises to find the Christmas Star and return it to the kingdom in time to lift the curse. It's magical filled with evil plotters, enchanted elves, a friendly bear, and Santa Claus himself.
