It is going to be an exciting Fall this year! Because I am a VeggieTales fan and there is a HUGE new crop of Veggietales products that are arriving in time for the Fall harvest. Or plenty of time for all the birthdays, Harvest parties and Christmas.
Well – just arrived back from St. Louis. For some reason the song “nothing could be finer that (something in St.Louie). Sorry – I digress. Anyway – good news about Veggietales for all the Veggie fans around the world. Here is an overview of some of the new stuff from Bob and Larry. First and foremost the new fall episode is called “It’s a Meaningful Life” – a cross between a Wonderful Life meets Polar Express. Sounds and looks like it will be a great episode and the focus is a lesson in Courage.
The biggest news of all ( in my opinion) is the return of the Larryboy Mobile! Yes the Larry Mobile is making a comeback!! Yah hoo. Check it out here and you can also pre order ( historically they go very fast). Pre Order Larry Mobile here
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the truest heart of all? Well – this is the question that is asked in the next Veggietales episode from the studios of Big Idea called “Sweetpea Beauty – A Girl after God’s Own Heart”.
This new installment deals with a Lesson About True Beauty.
According to Big Idea The story goes like this . . .
“Once upon a time, there lived a royally sour blueberry, a fair rhubarb maiden
and a dastardly deceptive mirror! Sweetpea Beauty knows that what’s on the inside is what matters most, but insecure Queen Blueberry can’t see past her own reflection! So, when a decree is handed down that only the most beautiful can rule the land, the Queen gets nervous and things turn ugly! Banished to the dark forest, Sweetpea’s fate seems bleak until a charming prince, a band of merry minstrels and seven snow peas come to the rescue! Will Sweetpea and her friends be able to warn the Queen in time to save her from the clutches of the tricky mirror — or will the crumbling kingdom and the Queen’s own heart be lost forever? Find out in this fairy “Veggie” tale about the real meaning of true beauty”. Stay tuned for this new installment this summer!
Also on the new disk will be the new Silly Song is called “Pants” and I wonder if it will be able to top “The Hairbrush Song”? We’ll just have to wait and see.
New compilation DVD coming this summer . . .
The girls are taking over on this summer and Bob and Larry are focusing on the stories from the softer side of life in a compilation DVD called “Girl Power” featuring Madame Blueberry, Esther and Duke and The Great Pie Wars.
Street date for Veggietales Sweetpea Beauty DVD is July 31st, 2010.
The pirate’s are pulling up to the dock October 11th, 2008 on DVD. The theatrical release produced $12.5 million at the box office. What will the DVD sales look like as it hits the store in time for the Christmas season? Will the FREE pirate hat and sword convince fans to take the plunge or will they walk the plank and make the purchase? Big Idea and the parent company sure hope that this new Veggie title performs well this holiday season. Maybe strong sales on this title can help keep Bob and Larry off the sale block. The rumor is that Entertainment Rights is trying to sell off some of their assets to help cover some debt. We will see what happens with this story.Regardless of the status of Big Idea – The Pirates movie is a wholesome family movie that delivers a message that God can use anybody and wants to be apart of our lives. The music is classic Veggie and the story is creatively written by Phil Vischer.
Big Idea is now 15 years old and seems to be holding on with consumer interest. Saturday mornings on NBC seem to be going strong. Numbers are down from season #1 -but NBC has committed to go thru this season with Bob house and 321 Penguins.
January 11th has come and gone ( the 11th was the opening day of the new Veggie Pirates Movie). The fate of the new Veggietales movie in the box office is not what was expected and is slowly moving along in the $$ box office numbers. As of this past weekend the total box office take is $11.2 million (slow and steady). Look at how well The Hannah Montana movie performed – it hit $29 million in just 3 days – wow!!
So what is the deal? Why did the Veggie Pirates Movie perform below expectations? I believe that the Pirates movie is a good solid family film. Good music, great story, silliness and just pure fun to watch for kids. Well – enough of what I think – What do you think? I am curious to hear from Veggie fans.
Here is what a few Veggie fan’s thought . . .
“Great Family night opportunity”
“It was a great family film”
“It was great and taught a great lesson”
“It was the best! Loved it and all the kids that went loved it! Thanks Big Idea!
“It was delightful and taught a great lesson that with God’s help we can do anything.”
“Nothing in the movie about God will make church people NOT go to see the movie.’
“Excellent Biblical teaching in a great entertainment format.”
‘I would not recommend this as a Christian Movie as there was not one mention of God or any Bible verses. Just another movie – it was okay. I expected alot more from Big Idea remember why you started and return your roots!!!
