Question: What do Steven Yuen, Gina Rodriguez, Zachary Levi, Keegan-Michael Key, Kelly Clarkson, Anthony Anderson, Aidy Bryant, Ving Rhames, Gabriel Iglesias, Patricia Heaton, Kristin Chenoweth, Christopher Plummer, Tyler Perry, Tracy Morgan, and Oprah Winfrey have in common?  Other than the fact that none of them have ever invited me to their birthday parties, I mean.

Answer: They’re all in the cast of The Star, an upcoming animated retelling of the Nativity story (AKA the first-ever Christmas) produced by the Jim Henson Company, along with Sony Pictures Animation and a bunch of other companies.  A lot of the folks listed above play animals, because this particular version of the story is told from the point of view of the animals… Donkeys, camels, birds, and like that.  Talking animal cartoons are hot right now.

Check out the teaser trailer:

Hey, where have I seen that gag before where the animal is trying to warn the human but the human only hears animal noises?  I know I’ve seen that somewhere.
