Director of "The Star" Timothy Reckart, pictured here, said of the overall message of the film, "I think the story about importance and greatness is really at the heart of Christmas story, which is about God doing this really great thing coming to Earth as the savior but under a very, very humble ordinary appearance of a baby born to two peasants in a barn, not even in a house. So I hope that also parallels the story that Bo has. He wants to do something great and important but in the end he realizes that the thing that’s truly great is this thing that does not look glamorous."

Actor Terry Crews (L) and his wife Rebecca King-Crews (R) attend the premiere with their children. "Blended" star Crews has spoken about the importance of family saying, "What I like to compare it to is like when you have a broken bone and it fuses together and it heals, it becomes stronger. It's kind of like the blended family is a stronger family because there is a lot more to overcome to be together."
