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.
Don't hesitate to get this film. It's the type of Christmas movie that is heartwarming anytime of the year! Ignore the naysayers!
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.
