This brand-new VeggieTales musical came out yesterday, Oct. 14,
and stars Kellie Pickler, from American Idol and singing fame!
Mirabelle and her traveling family band, the VeggieTones, are determined to make their next gig at Vegetable Square Garden. On their journey, a fierce winter snowstorm hits, and the family gets stuck at a run-down resort! Mr. Beet, the grumpy manager makes them sing - and clean - for their supper. Why is Mr Beet such a beast? And can Mirabelle’s kindness change him? Find out in this hilarious and heartwarming tale of unconditional love! Featuring 8 Songs performed by Kellie Pickler as “Mirabelle.”
Check out the Trailer:
This is a VERY sweet movie (aren't all VeggieTales movies?), with some great music for the kids to sing along with! I was worried that Miss Grace would not want to watch it, as she had declared herself too old for VeggieTales (can one REALLY be too old to sing the theme song???), but when she saw it was a CHRISTMAS movie, with Christmas songs, she couldn't wait to load it into the DVD player! It is an great story to remind kids that no matter where we go, and accomplish, in life, we need to be the person that God WANTS us to be. We need to keep our faith and stay true to ourselves. It also teaches a very good lesson on unconditional love- something which children need to remember to keep too! There is a reason why VeggieTales has lasted so long and been a staple for so many generations- quality children's programming that teaches valuable Christian moral and life lessons, along with some VERY catchy songs!
And speaking of, you get a new Silly Song with Larry: Mac and Cheese (click the link for a preview of it)- in which Larry the Cucumber reveals the surprising, and heretofore untold, history of his family’s unexpected contributions to Italian cuisine. Miss Grace laughed her butt off while singing along! The DVD also has a "show Your Love" sing-a-long (which Miss Grace got addicted to), and In teh Kitchen with Bob Featurette. It also has The Sweetest Sweet Potato: Behind the Scenes with Kellie Pickler feature, that will thrill all VeggieTales fans!
BEAUTY AND THE BEET is just the start of the fun in store this fall for VeggieTales fans, because the gang will also star in a brand-new Netflix original series, VeggieTales In the House, which premieres Thanksgiving weekend. So make sure you mark your calenders for that day!
One lucky BTHM reader will win a copy of this DVD for a lucky child in their life!
