5.0 out of 5 stars great for all ages! 26 May 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I have now had this film for about 17 years, and its still one of my favourite films, ok so I’m 17 now but that just shows how good it is!
Rainbow brite goes to earth to start spring, but something’s wrong, her star sprinkles wont work! So she returns to rainbowland to find out whats wrong, leaving the planet in winter.
The dark Princess has been combing the galaxy for gems to suit her own pleasures. Now she has decided that she must have the biggest, most beautiful one: Spectra, the sole source of light for the universe. This means that it'll be winter on earth forever if she succeeds and everything will die. Of course it is up to our heroine Rainbow brite to save the day, with alittle help from all her friends.
This is a wonderful animated film to be enjoyed by all ages, its family-orientated , involving fun, mystery, and adventure with positive values. The animation delights and so do all the other qualities of the film. You’ll definitely fall in love with all the characters from krys to murky! You wont regret buying this for years to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars 80's CARTOONS LIVE ON! Rainbow Brite is the way to go!! 26 Jun 2001
By "miakarayne" - Published on Amazon.com
My Goodness! Just when I thought that this movie was out of print I come across this wonderful link at Amazon.com! Oh, how I could kiss them!
If you are looking for an 80s cartoon to bring back the good ol' days in animation you can stop here and click the "Add to Shopping Cart" button, because you have found THE most perfect 80s cartoon of all time. People of all ages, male or female will love this movie! Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer is full of colorful animation (excuse the pun) and great songs that just make you want to get up and dance like it's the 80s all over again.
Rainbow Brite must deal with her greatest adversary yet: an evil Princess who wants to take the greatest light in the world and keep it to herself, thus causing all of the color to disappear from the world. (no light = no colors!) This is an even bigger job than trying to fight Murky or Lurky! Along the way, Rainbow Brite meets a new friend and she learns that working together really does help. Only friendship and unselfishness can save the day!
This is a rare treat to find on the web, so if you really must have an 80s cartoon to keep you going, THIS IS A MUST HAVE! It definitely made my day (as it will over and over on my television set for years to come ^_~)!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 22 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I love this movie! Ever since I was a little kid I've liked rainbow brite. And now at 15 it's no different than when i was 5. I definitely recommend watching this movie. All the rainbow kids and the little sprites were very cute and it actually had a good storyline. If anyone is reading this and you havent seen this great movie i'll give a little review for you :) Rainbow Brite is getting ready to bring spring to earth, when she tries to do this, her star sprinkles don't work. So she goes to find out the source of this problem was. When she goes back to Rainbowland she finds a strange horse there who is looking for her help, she goes with him... that's all i'm going to say, so watch it! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Movie - Don't Love Waiting For It 6 July 2006
By RoryOry - Published on Amazon.com
I am in the same boat as everyone else: I love this movie and was ESTATIC to see it was available on DVD. I am just still waiting for it through amazon. I ordered the movie on May 16, 2006 and it is now July 6, 2006 and still no movie. I am NOT happy. I am disappointed in Amazon for advertising a 1 to 3 week delivery period. That is a complete lie and would recommend to anyone purchasing this movie to click on the the "new & used" link, or to use eBay if they can.

Aside from the ordering conflict- the movie itself is wonderful and I am so HAPPY to read that I am NOT the only adult (23 years old) who is in search of a classic! YOU GO RAINBOW BRITE!!

3.0 out of 5 stars not sexist 27 Jan 2005
By Vashti - Published on Amazon.com
It's missing the point dramatically to say that this film depicts girls as useless. There's a fairly typical boy/girl rivalry depicted, yes, but I don't believe anyone who watched the film from the start could reasonably think that girls are depicted as useless or powerless in it.

I was able to figure out that the Krys character's opinion of girls was biased and unjustified (and, ultimately, proven wrong within the film) when I was eight. Today I'm a self-described feminist and I still think "Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer" presents a number of positive and powerful role models for young girls. I'd happily recommend it.
