Here’s something fun to put in the kids’ Easter baskets! Get the new VeggieTales: Noahs Ark now out on DVD!
We went to a event at Lifeway Christian Stores where we got to see the new movie in the store with some snacks and crafts. Then to my delight, VeggieTales sent us a copy of the movie so we could tell you all about it! (Because, do you have any idea how hard it is to watch a movie in a store?) I was happy to watch it again (and again) in the comfort of my own living room.
This is the story that after 20 years of watching VeggieTales (yes, they’ve been around that long…probably longer) I had almost given up on them doing. (They tried to pass with MINNESOTA CUKE & THE SEARCH FOR NOAH’S UMBRELLA but I wasn’t buying it. I wanted the WHOLE Noah’s Ark story)
So, yay for finally doing Noah’s Ark! I will say, I’m not a fan of the new animation. I like the old style better. Bug hasn’t seemed to notice the change. He watches the new VeggieTales in the House show on Netflix which has wildly different animation as well as the older ones (which I still love greatly) and he hasn’t said anything about them looking different. (We’ve also seen VeggieTales Live several times so maybe he’s just used to them taking different forms…)
They took some liberties with the story – it’s not near as true to life as say, Daniel in the Lions Den from WHERE’S GOD WHEN I’M SCARED (still possibly my favorite). But we know that sometimes to make the story understandable for children they adjust some things (Anyone remember The Story of Flibber-o-loo in ARE YOU MY NEIGHBOR??) I don’t think the “modifications” are anything to get riled up about. I personally feel like VeggieTales should not be your first line for teaching your children Bible stories and Biblical values. But a fun way to reinforce and discuss the things they’re already learning. All in all it was fun to watch. I’m still not sold on the new animation but maybe it will grow on me.
If you want to add VeggieTales: Noahs Ark to your child’s Easter Basket you can grab it on Amazon right now for $7.99! (47% off the regular price of $14.99!)
Big thanks to VeggieTales and Big Idea for sending us a copy of the DVD. I was not paid for my review. This post does contain affiliate links and I love it when you click on them! ;)
