The studio hasn’t released any pictures yet, to my knowledge, but today Sony Pictures Animation sent out a press release announcing the voice cast for its upcoming film The Star, which tells the story of the first Christmas from the animals’ point of view.
Sony Animation’s The Star — a Nativity film coming out next year — warms up its online marketing campaign
Is it too early to think about next year’s Christmas movies?
The Star — the first major-studio animated feature based on the New Testament — has a plot synopsis now
One year ago, Sony Pictures announced that they would be releasing The Lamb, an animated film about the first Christmas, on December 8, 2017. Then, two months ago, Sony announced that the film had a new title — The Star — but the release date was still the same. Now, however, it looks like the release date has changed, too.
Sony Animation unveiled its slate for the next two years today, announcing release dates for Hotel Transylvania 3, an animated Spider-Man movie, and more. Along the way, they also revealed that The Lamb, their “faith-based” animated take on the Nativity featuring “an all-animal cast”, has a new working title: The Star.
