An animated film is being sent to primary schools throughout the UK to teach children the Christmas story - and that Jesus is not a swear word.
The Angel Gabriel is one of the animated characters in the film
Christian charity the Breakout Trust said It's a Boy was created after a child asked why Mary and Joseph had named their baby after a swear word.
Comedian Joe Pasquale and actor Steven Berkoff are among those providing the voices for the 30-minute film.
The soundtrack is performed by Sir Cliff Richard.
The Breakout Trust will send a copy of the film and a teaching pack to all 26,000 UK primary schools.
Author Steve Legg said: "When I heard about the boy asking why Jesus Christ was named after a swear word, that really hit me.
"There are more than 12m children in the UK and only 756,000 of them go to church regularly.
"That leaves a staggering number who don't and are probably not receiving basic Christian teaching."
He said it was not an attempt to "ram religion down people's throats" but to ensure a basic level of teaching in schools.
The film tells the story of Jesus' birth from an original viewpoint - through the eyes of three quails.
The quails are captured by King Herod and mount a bid to escape to follow Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem to warn them the king is looking for their baby.
The film is being premiered at a cinema in London's Leicester Square on Sunday and will be sent to schools in December.
