Patricia Heaton is best known for her Emmy-winning performance on the comedy series "Everybody Loves Raymond." Now, the actress is moving from starring in a TV show to an animated film, and she has one important objective: share the power of Jesus.
Heaton plays Edith the cow in "The Star," an animated film about the animals in the Christmas story that is set to release on November 10. According to Faithwire, the actress believes that the Christmas season is the best time to discuss the meaning of life.
She said, “Not to get depressing [but] 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 you’re contributing to the world."
"Our lives here are really brief and the story of the nativity is about all of that and this gift we were given through the birth of Christ and his work on the cross that embues every aspect of our life with meaning," she continued.
Heaton, who has been known for her strong stance on supporting life, said that "every life has a meaning." She said that the movie will point people toward Jesus and the true meaning of Christmas.
She said, “We can all affect the course of history through our actions and wherever God has put us. And that’s very clear in the nativity story — the creator of the universe entered the world through a poor family, in the poorest of circumstances and he changed the world and saved the world.”
The executive producer of the film, DeVon Franklin, made a statement about "The Star" as well. He said that families "will laugh and be inspired as they experience the power of faith, friends and courage."
Below is the official trailer for the film:
