Angelina Ballerina: The Shining Star Trophy - The Movie DVD {Review}

Angelina Ballerina logoWhen it comes to tapping into the love for ballet that little girls everywhere share, I can't think of a character that does it better than Angelina Ballerina. Camembert Academy's shining star of dance and her sparkling stories about performance, family, friendship and following her dreams continually delight aspiring ballerinas everywhere.

But now the entertainment of this lovable mouse can be taken even further as the curtain rises on Angelina’s first-ever full length movie in Angelina Ballerina: The Shining Star Trophy - The Movie.

Angelina Ballerina: Shining Star TrophyBringing viewers along to see who wins the Shining Star Trophy when Angelina Ballerina and her friends perform in the big talent show, Angelina Ballerina: The Shining Star Trophy - The Movie is available today, August 30, 2011, on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment.

Featuring stunning CG animation in its 55-minute running time, Angelina shines brighter than ever in this all-new movie. When Ms. Mimi announces that there's going to be a big talent show at Camembert Academy, it is major news that the winner will walk away with the Shining Star Trophy.

With celebrity guest judge Perry Parmesan deciding the winner, every minute of practice counts... but when Angelina goes out of her way to help her friends find their special talents, she has little time to work on her own routine. Who will take center stage and win the Shining Star Trophy? Watch as Angelina follows her heart to become a true shining star!

Angelina BallerinaAlong with this fun new movie, the Angelina Ballerina excitement continues in many other ways:
  • There are four new CGI Angelina Ballerina books from Penguin Young Readers.
  • The first mobile app for Apple iPhone and iPod touch, "Dress Up with Angelina," charted as the #1 paid kids game app in only 2 weeks after it launched and continues to be in the top 100 selling paid kids game apps.
  • There is a new interactive app launching for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, "Angelina’s New Ballet Teacher."

Targeted for ages 2-7, Angelina Ballerina is sure to be a hit in any household of young dancers. My girls are continually pulling on their tutus and twirling as they follow along with Angelina and her friends and Angelina Ballerina: The Shining Star Trophy - The Movie (retailing for $14.98... or a little less on Amazon), just makes it that much easier to reinforce ideas such as staying positive, believing in yourself and following your dreams. That mouse really knows her stuff!

(Other than the DVD copy of Angelina Ballerina: The Shining Star Trophy - The Movie that I received from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this post in any way. This review is solely my opinion of this show and this DVD.)
