Crystle Tellerday says she loves Veggie Tales, and I don’t blame her because they are fun to watch. My daughter tells me all the funny situations these vegetables get into as they try to solve a problem.
Anyway, Screehead held a giveaway for VeggieTales newest DVD is the first new Easter holiday DVD in seven years: ‘Twas The Night Before Easter. The faith-based DVD is available in Christian and general market stores.
Crystle, I hope you enjoy the DVD!
This brand new DVD features plenty of fun music as well as a new character—Cassie Cassava—voiced by American Idol top finalist Melinda Doolittle. Other memorable family-friendly content includes silly songs, interviews and a backstage pass feature with Larry the Cucumber on the “VeggieTales Live!” tour. ‘Twas The Night Before Easter examines how important it is to help other people while exploring the real meaning of Easter.
“We hatched ‘Twas The Night Before Easter as a holiday surprise for families,” said Leslie Ferrell, General Manager of Big Idea Entertainment, the company that produces VeggieTales. “This title follows the huge sales success our first Easter-themed release, An Easter Carol, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to deliver a new DVD timed to the holiday this year. It was truly a rewarding experience working with Melinda Doolittle, and we think fans are going to love her character, Cassie Cassava, just as much as her wonderful singing!”
Its Easter time in Crisper County and cable news reporter Marlee Meade is hunting for a way to help others. She cooks up a plan to save the old theater with a cast of costume-clad townies, massive props and a 20-foot robot rabbit to perform “Up With Bunnies.”
Now there’s only one thing missing – the star of the show! When word spreads that singing sensation Cassie Cassava (Melinda Doolittle) is arriving to perform in her hometown church’s Easter service, Marlee schemes to steal the starlet for her own pageant! But when things go haywire, will it be curtains for Marlee’s dreams – or will she discover the true meaning of Easter and what helping others is really all about?
My daughter has been watching VeggieTales since she was in preschool. As my constant feedback for all children friendly DVDs, she has offered her opinion of the VeggieTales latest.
“It’s funny.” She talked about the different situations that arose in the story, which sounded like a situation comedy. She loved how the movie was upbeat. She even watched the special features, which shows how to draw the characters of the movie, pretty cool!
