A Lesson In Unconditional Love
Beauty and the Beet is the newest DVD available from the beloved children’s animated story creators – Veggie Tales! My two kids were SO EXCITED about this particular DVD coming out as we are big Disney fans, and love the Beauty and the Beast story. To no surprise, we were very pleased with the outcome of Veggie Tales version of the story called Beauty and the Beet! Veggie Tales always does a superb job of finding just the right amount of witty humor to entertain the adults watching with their kids as well as having funny, silly, crazy, laugh-out-loud moments to thrill and delight the kids. We love all the Veggie Tales shows and this one is going to be a new favorite.
Our desire to instill morals and values in our children’s hearts and minds comes with careful choosing in what we let them read, listen to, and watch on TV. If you are as cautious as we are, you will be more than happy to know that we give the Veggie Tales Beauty and the Beet (and every Veggie Tales film for that matter) a huge thumbs up for family friendliness and helpful life lessons in the show. Probably our favorite parts of this film were the silly song with Larry (about Mac N Cheese!) and the adorable songs in this film. The songs “Show You Love” and “Deck the Halls” song are very contagious and my kids hit the replay button on the sing-a-long songs at the end over and over to sing and dance along with them. The cd to accompany this film will be releasing soon too and we will be sure to grab one for our listening (and sing-a-long) enjoyment.
Beauty and the Beet Details:
(Sept. 11, 2014) – Take the timeless and enchanting story of “Beauty and the Beast,” toss with the unique flavors of VeggieTales and blend in the sweet voice of country music superstar Kellie Pickler – and the result is BEAUTY AND THE BEET, a brand-new VeggieTales musical that premieres Oct. 14 exclusively on DVD and digital download.Pickler (American Idol, Dancing With the Stars) 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 and appeal of VeggieTales with a heartfelt message about the importance of unconditional love.A BEAUTY AND THE BEET companion CD, featuring 10 brand-new songs – including an all-veggie rendition of the classic Christmas carol Deck the Halls – will also be available in stores and on iTunes to coincide with the release of the movie on Oct. 14.”All my nieces and nephews grew up with VeggieTales, and when they heard I was going to be in a VeggieTales movie, I immediately became the coolest aunt in the world!” said Pickler, who joins the VeggieTales cast on eight of the 10 songs on the BEAUTY AND THE BEET soundtrack. “Mirabelle may be a vegetable, but she’s beautiful through and through, especially her ability to show grace and compassion for everyone she meets. “Mirabelle’s kindness extends to Finnegan J. Beet, the bitter and lonely owner of a rundown mountaintop resort where Mirabelle’s family breaks down en route to their biggest concert ever. Matching the Beet’s heartless actions with her own genuinely sweet nature, Mirabelle proves that just as God loves us all whether we deserve it or not, unconditional love is its own reward.In addition to Mirabelle and Mr. Beet, the zesty supporting cast includes Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, Jimmy the Gourd, the French Peas and a host of other favorite veggies.
Both the DVD and the CD also include 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 Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber and their friends will also star in a brand-new Netflix original series, VeggieTales In the House, which premieres Thanksgiving weekend exclusively on the streaming platform.
Kellie Pickler appears on the BEAUTY AND THE BEET soundtrack album courtesy of Black River Entertainment. She grew up immersed in the country life of small town Albemarle, N.C. At age 19, she gained fame as a contestant on “American Idol,” followed by a move to Nashville where she has recorded four critically acclaimed albums (Small Town Girl, Kellie Pickler, 100 Proof, and her current album The Woman I Am), performed for fans around the world, and made countless television appearances, including a 2013 win on Dancing with the Stars.
