Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer (1985)
Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer is an animated film released on November 15, 1985 by Warner Bros., and produced by DiC Entertainment and Hallmark Cards. This is the only film to feature the greeting card character, Rainbow Brite; she also appeared in a few television specials prior to its release, and later in a Kideo TV series. In the film, Rainbow Brite tries to bring spring to an Earth that is already facing a perpetual winter. She must stop a wicked princess who wants all of Spectra, a planet-sized diamond through which all the light in the universe has to go through. Star Stealer did not receive advance screenings upon its release, and fared weakly among critics. The film grossed only $4,889,971 at the United States box-office, after opening with $1.8 million. It was released on DVD in November 2004. When Rainbow Brite, and her magical horse Starlite, go to Earth to start spring, they meet Stormy, another magical girl who controls the season of winter with her horse Skydancer. Stormy, however, doesn't want to end her winter fun, so Rainbow battles her for control over the season. Stormy proves to be no match for Rainbow and Starlite, who outrun her and head off to Earth.
