"'Twas the night before Easter" Veggie Tales DVD Review & Giveaway!!
Posted Mar 10 2011 12:00am
Just in time for Easter and spring time, the all new VeggieTales DVD is just released, "'Twas the night before Easter," and is now available on shelves! 'Twas the Night Before Easter came out on March 8th, and this DVD is a fun children's show (adults like them, too).
"It's a 'Hare' raising Easter Adventure! 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?"
'Twas the Night Before Easter, is a story about helping others and working together. Marlee Meade really wants to help her community and make a difference. Leaving her reporter job, she decides to take on running a musical theater production. My son's favorite part of 'Twas the Night Before Easter was when the 20 foot robot rabbit went 40 miles per hour to be on time. :)
"Up With Bunnies," the musical play ends up a fun show. Cassie Cassava (voiced by American Idol finalist Melinda Doolittle) was coming back to town. She is quite the singer, and Marlee Meade knows it, so she hatches a plan to get Cassie to perform. Things don't go as planned for Marlee, though, however, she learns the true meaning of Easter as well as what it really means to help others.
"The Hopperena" is a new VeggieTales song, and my kids loved it. Another fun bonus feature on the DVD is the "Easter Cards" interactive matching game. You can choose the Audio Commentary while you watch the DVD which explains details of the DVD, and there is also Larry's backstage pass to " VeggieTales Live!"
My kids loved this DVD, and really enjoyed the classic VeggieTales humor.
One of the special features in this video is the information about VeggieTales teaming up with World Vision. This is the ultimate way of helping others - helping those less fortunate. As a little extra incentive for people to sponsor a child, VeggieTales is offering a special Veggie Tales book library worth $50 free with a sponsored child.
