In a world where Christmas has been largely commercialized and the true meaning lost on most people, Sony is producing an animated feature The Star, featuring Patricia Heaton, as the main character, Edith The Cow.
Other notable stars who are included in this movie include Oprah Winfrey, Kristen Chenowith, Tyler Perry and Christopher Plummer. Heaton is thrilled that a children’s movie is going to teach the story of Christmas from the perspective of animals to make it more appealing to young children.
Patricia Heaton says she knows how important it is to tell the story of how Jesus Christ was born and the Nativity.
“It inspires people to think about their futures beyond today and what they are contributing to the world,” she said.
The movie comes out on November 17, 2017, just in time for the holiday season.
Patricia Heaton is an Emmy Award-winning actress who also has a role on the show “The Middle” on ABC, where she plays a middle-aged, middle-class mother. She believes that this new role is an excellent way to share biblical stories that help people gain a new perspective on life.
“Life is short and I think it’s important to realize that you have to think beyond just today, just this minute, a vision about the world and your future and what your contributing to the world,” she added.
Heaton went on to say she is honored to play her role in what she believes is a critical movie for both the young and the old.
“Our lives here are really brief and the story of the nativity is about all of that and this gift we were given because Jesus Christ was born,” she continued.
Heaton is a Roman Catholic, and says she believes strongly in her faith. She knows that the Holy Spirit is at work in her life, and only recently shared on social media an experience she had at mass in the past few weeks. She wrote that she was at mass, complaining to herself about the sermon that wasn’t very inspirational to her. She then went up to receive the body of Christ and burst into tears at the beauty of it. She felt the Holy Spirit coursing through her and she knows that God is at work when she has moments such as this.
Heaton is also a pro-life advocate who believes that pregnancy is beautiful and not something you should ever terminate willingly. She understands that abortion is against God’s will and used too often as a form of birth control by people who feel that a pregnancy would disrupt their lives. It’s a stance she has taken for years, and she has used her star power to advocate against abortion throughout her career.
Heaton is ready to bring the true story of the Nativity and the birth of Jesus Christ to crowds this fall. As the main character, she is pivotal in telling the story from her perspective. This is a great role for Heaton, and despite being an animated feature, she is very committed to the project. This is a subject that is very close to her heart and she is excited to see how crowds are going to react to the movie.
As a woman who understands God’s role in her life, Heaton feels as though she is a messenger of sorts through this movie. She is able to bring the word of God to a wide audience at a time where faith in God and humanity seems to be decreasing.
People are missing the point of Christmas, and turning back to the story of how Jesus Christ was born may help bring people back to a faith based life.
God is present, if people listen. While it may be difficult to find the meaning of God in a tumultuous world, God is still there speaking for those who pay attention. Heaton is hopeful that people are going to hear the message in The Star, and begin believing in the power of God as they should.
God isn’t gone, but people are missing the message. It’s time to bring God back to the forefront and The Star seems ready to do just that.
