Magical animated adventure based on the best-selling bedtime story book by Klaus Baumgart. Laura (voice of Celine Vogt) is an unhappy seven-year-old girl who dreams of being an astronaut. One night, a five-pointed star the size of a pillow falls out of the sky and is patched up by Laura with Elastoplast. This new friend brings her nursery toys to life and enables her to fly. The star begins to lose its powers, but with the help of Laura and the boy next door, it recovers and is able to return to the dark night sky.
Laura's Star tells the story of seven-year-old Laura who moves to a newtown. She finds it hard to make new friends until she finds a, quite literally, fallen star. It is the start of a great friendship. By the end,Laura learns that love means also having to let go so the star can return to the sky.

It has been beautifully done. The story follows Laura, who is very unhappy to have moved to a new home in the city and is quite determined for her family to move back to where they were in the countryside. However, she ends up with a star in her possession and is quite thrilled with how it literally lights up her life. There's a dilemma though, when she realises that staying with her might not be the best thing for the star.
The story is sensitively handled, and I even found myself with a tear in my eye at one point! The animation is simple but rather beautiful. There are no big comedy sequences, no major action scenes. It's all very gentle and rather enchanting. I watched it with a group of 6 and 7 year olds, and even the most rambunctious and rowdy boys sat and really enjoyed watching for the full 77 minutes.
I think this is rather a hidden gem. I would highly recommend it for children aged from about three, up to about 8.
The plot is quite subdued compared to most Disney and similar titles on the market. There is no violence or villains to contend with so there's no overly dramatic climax--it's very much a simple children's story brought to life without all the "let's add in adult humor/thrills so the parents can stand to watch it" type of things.
Also, I do have to say that I LOVED the soundtrack on this movie! The music was sweet, uplifting and relaxing. If the soundtrack were available on CD I'd buy it in a heartbeat!
Stunning, clever and charming!
