Today I am sharing a review of StarStruck: Extended Edition, a DVD from Walt Disney.
This is a musical adventure-filled romp that hits all the right notes for kids and tweens. This tells the story of Jessica Olson and her older sister Sara who are heading to Hollywood from Kalamazoo, Michigan on a family trip to visit their grandmother. Sara is obsessed with a pop star and hopes to track him down while in California but Jessica wishes to go sightseeing rather than tracking down some stuck up pop star.
The sisters arrive in L.A. where Sara takes Jessica on a hunt to find the pop star, Christopher Wilde, and as a chance meeting seems possible with the star the girls set off on a series of adventures that are comical and feature many of L.A.’s landmark locations.
This movie will tear at your emotions and get you take a look at who you really are, deep inside versus what others wish you to be. Great DVD that I give five out of five stars!
Bonus Features on this DVD/CD Combo:
- Extended version of the movie – only available in DVD.

StarStruck is certainly a modern day Cinderella story that promotes messages about honesty, humility, self-acceptance and strength of character. As most of you know those are all very important messages to me personally which is why I am happy to share this DVD with you, nothing hits me harder than a movie or book that shares the challenges of learning who you are and sharing the path to self discovery.
