In the Tybee Post Theater’s three-day engagement of the just-released, Christmas-themed CGI feature “The Star,” all sorts of Hollywood types can be found voicing characters in this comedic re-imagining of the tale of Jesus’ birth — including “The Walking Dead” alum Steven Yeun, Kegan-Michael Key of “Key & Peele” and even sassy-frassy pop singer Kelly Clarkson. What makes this film unique from others dealing with the whole “away in a manger” story? Well, this one is told from… wait for it… the perspective of one of the donkeys on hand, as opposed to a wise man or even a passing haberdasher.
Both critics and viewers are split on whether “The Star” is any better than average as far as such animated flicks go, but word on the street is that kids dig it. Which is really all that matters, right? Plus, the Tybee Post has heat! 7 p.m. showtimes on Thursday, Friday and Sunday, with an added 3 p.m. matinee that final day. Admission prices to all Film Scene events can be found in our accompanying sidebar listings. Read More:
