Laura's Star (German: Lauras Stern) is a 2004 German animated film produced and directed by Thilo Rothkirch. It is based on the children's book Lauras Stern by Klaus Baumgart. It was released by Warner Bros. Family Entertainment.
Laura is seven year old country girl, who's just moved along with her family to a big city. On her first night in her new neighborhood, she sees a shooting star falling to earth, she finds it in a park and discovers it is a living being, (that's severed one of its points during its crash landing). Taking it back home (to reattach its point with a band-aid), she and her younger brother Tommy discover the little star has special powers and can do amazing things like making people fly and bringing inanimate objects to life. But over time both notice that the longer the star stays on earth, the weaker it becomes (with its colour fading while its powers fail), with their next door neighbor Max they find a way to send the little star back into outer space.
