about the movie....
This brand-new VeggieTales musical premieres Oct. 14 and stars Kellie Pickler (American Idol, Dancing With the Stars), who brings her unmistakable voice to the role of Mirabelle, a sweet-potato singer whose family band is on the brink of superstardom. BEAUTY AND THE BEET blends the irresistible charm of VeggieTales with a heartfelt message about unconditional love. The DVD also includes Mac and Cheese, a giddy new “Silly Songs With Larry” segment in which Larry the Cucumber reveals the surprising and heretofore untold history of his family’s unexpected contributions to Italian cuisine. 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.
I was in my teens when VeggieTales burst onto the scene, and I've been watching them ever since! Imagine my excitement, then, when I learned of a new VeggieTales movie for me to introduce to my children, "Beauty and the Beet"...and right in time for the holidays! We all cozied up for a family movie night...and boy did we all get a treat. This film finds the veggies at their finest, taking a classic story and giving it a "veggie twist". The characters are full of life and the film is a treat to watch with all the action that fills the screen as well as the wonderful songs that will have your toes tapping along. My children were riveted from the start to the finish, enjoying the story and the songs...with Larry's silly song being one of their favourite moments of course! And I love that the movie is wonderfully entertaining without parents needing to be worried that the story will be too scary or that the kids will be exposed to something they shouldn't. Rather, like my children, yours will walk away having learned the important lesson of unconditional love and the power of kindness and friendship, a lesson easy to swallow with the good dose of laughter that the veggies always are able to provide. In fact, I will admit that while I did watch this movie primarily for the sake of my children, I think I enjoyed it just as much as they did! This is one of those movies that we will be watching over and over again, and I encourage you to pick up a copy for yourselves.
I highly recommend this movie to children and families, not only to be thoroughly entertained, but to gain some Biblical truth along the way. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
