This new promo picture of The Star, the upcoming faith-based CG animated movie directed by Timothy Reckart, features both Joseph and Mary:
“In Sony Pictures Animation’s THE STAR, a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a lovable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.”
Since Mary (Gina Rodriguez) and Joseph (Zachary Levi) totally look like Middle Eastern people I guess Jesus Christ won’t look as Caucasian as some like to believe. At last no useless white-washing controversy for this film, lol!
Release date: November 10, 2017.
