Care Bears: The Giving Festival is a 2010 computer-animated feature film starring the Care Bears characters. It was made by SD Entertainment[1] and released on DVD by Lionsgate[2] on November 2, 2010.[3] In the film, the Care Power Team—which includes Funshine Bear, Cheer Bear and Share Bear—organizes their annual Giving Festival, and must rescue a princess named Starglo from impending weather.[1]

Release[edit]

The DVD of The Giving Festival features an episode of the CBS/DIC Entertainment series, Adventures in Care-a-lot, containing the stories "Belly Blanked" and "All Give and No Take".[4][5]

Reception[edit]

As of November 2010, the film has received mixed reviews. C.S. Strowbridge of The Numbers, a box-office tracking website, said that it "is exactly what you would expect from the Care Bears. It's not exactly a feature-length film, and it feels a little episodic, but it is bright and full of adventure."[4] Writing for DVD Talk, Paul Mavis gave it one star out of five. Deeming it "Dishonest right from the get-go", he also said, "When I want a Care Bears Christmas movie ... and I do ... I want it to actually be about Christmas, not some wishy-washy P.C. 'Giving Festival' euphemism."[5]
