A teaser trailer for “The Star” —the anticipated new film from Sony Pictures Animation—released online this morning, via USA Today.  The teaser trailer will also appear in theaters Friday, July 28, with “The Emoji Movie” giving a first look at the faith-and-family film telling the story of the first Christmas through the eyes of the animals who witnessed it.

The film follows a small but brave donkey named Bo, who yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a loveable 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 unlikely heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.

“The Star” brilliantly tells the story of the first Christmas from the perspective of the adventurous animals who contributed to the journey and bore witness to the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ,” said Executive Producer DeVon Franklin, who also produced the faith based drama “Miracles from Heaven.”  “The entire family will laugh and be inspired as they experience the power of faith, friends and courage through the eyes of these brave, heroic animals.”

Directed by Timothy Reckart, the film features the voices of Steven Yeun, Kelly Clarkson, Keegan-Michael Key, Kristin Chenoweth, Anthony Anderson and Ving Rhames.
