Sony Pictures Animation Developing Faith-Based Movie About Nativity Story (Exclusive)
Sony Pictures Animation is developing “The Lamb,” an animated movie inspired by the Nativity story that DeVon Franklin will produce under his newly-minted company Franklin Entertainment.
Based on an original pitch by Tom Sheridan, the film will feature both laughs and heart, as well as an all-animal cast.
Sony Animation intends to produce an inspiring, respectful and entertaining take on the famous Nativity story while remaining accessible to a broad audiences. . . .
DreamWorks Animation tried its hand at a Biblical animated movie in 1998 with “The Prince of Egypt,” which grossed $218 million worldwide. So far, that has been the only faith-based film from a major animation studio, though it should be noted that ”Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie” grossed $25 million in the U.S. on a reported production budget of $14 million. . . .

Cast announced, including a couple of Bible-movie veterans (Christopher Plummer and Tyler Perry, if last year's live musical The Passion can be considered a "movie") and Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez as the Virgin Mary. Also, Oprah Winfrey as a camel.
