Veggie Tales- Twas the Night Before Easter Review and Giveaway

Twas the Night Before Easter

Yay!! I get to share with you another new Veggie Tales DVD! This time it’s ‘Twas the Night Before Easter! Of Course, Big Idea has done it again! Another full length Veggie Tales movie to fall in love with.  My kids loved the giant robot bunny and dancing along with the silly song. It was a lot of fun watching the town auditions for the play. Veggie Tales has introduced a new character in this movie called Cassie Cassava. Cassie was inspired by the cassava root, which is a primary source of food for developing nations in Africa and South America. This vegetable was suggested by World Vision, and it’s been fun to see Cassie come to life! Cassie is voiced by former American Idol Melinda Doolittle. Her character is a singing sensation with a golden heart, who returns to her hometown to perform at an Easter service, but instead ends up getting roped into all sorts of veggie silliness and antics. You’ll have to watch the show to find out what happens! Welcome Cassie to the veggie family!

It’s Easter time in Crisper County and cable news reporter Marlee Meade (Petunia Rhubarb) is hunting for a way to help others. On a tip that the old town theater will be shut down, Marlee cooks up a plan to save the stage and make a difference through the power of musical theater. With a cast of costume-clad townies, massive props and a 20-foot robot rabbit – “Up With Bunnies” is hatched! There’s only one thing missing – the star of the show! When news spreads that singing sensation Cassie Cassava (Melinda Doolittle) is arriving to perform in her hometown church’s Easter service, Marlee gets worried.  Concerned about the competition, she 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?

Veggie Tales has partnered with World Vision on the release of this DVD. In the extra features section you can find all-new animation featuring Bob and Larry encouraging child sponsorship through World Vision – as well as some of familiar faces! That’s right – some amazing blogging mommas went to Dominican Republic with World Vision and the promo video features many of them 🙂

There, of course, is a silly song in this video. It’s called the Hopperena. For once, Archibald has some fun!

    We don’t have any traditions now, but when I was little – we would go to church first and then have an egg hunt. Then, my sisters and I would spend the rest of the day re-hiding the eggs and taking turns re-finding them!
