The newest VeggieTales movie, ‘Twas the Night before Easter is out on DVD just in time for Easter.
Here is a synopsis:
It’s 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?
As we all know, Easter is about the death of Jesus, and the VeggieTales are Christian movies that bring children important ethical and Christian values. Many of the VeggieTales movies that I have seen in the past do not have a direct link to church or Jesus in an obvious way, they are more subtle. VeggieTales: ‘Twas the Night Before Easter takes place mostly in a church making the connection from “VeggiesTales” to Jesus quite a bit more obvious.
I am a strong believer of celebrating holidays for their true meanings. I have always celebrated Easter as the death of Jesus and although the fun of finding Easter eggs was also a bonus, the secular events never overshadowed the true meaning. This is why I love VeggiesTales so much, they are fun, captivating and they always have important values, lessons and bring the true meanings of the holiday seasons to kids through their movies.
