Shrek’s donkey is out. Mary’s is in.
That humble steed, and a whole crew of other animals, takes us on the (animated) journey of the very first Christmas in The Star, coming this fall from Sony Pictures Animation. The faith-based entry puts a comedic yet still reverent spin on the birth of Christ in a family-friendly movie for all ages.
An all-star cast includes The Walking Dead‘s Steven Yeun as Bo the donkey, Zachary Levi (Tangled) as Joseph and (fittingly) as Mary, the star of TV’s Jane The Virgin Gina Rodriguez. Big names pepper the ensemble, too, from Oprah Winfrey to Tyler Perry, Patricia Heaton, Kristin Chenoweth, Keegan-Michaely Key, Kelly Clarkson, Anthony Anderson, Tracy Morgan, Christopher Plummer, and more. (See some of the cast/character pairing in the gallery below.)
A co-production with Walden Media and Affirm Films, The Star arrives well before Christmas Eve when it hits theaters on November 10, 2017.
