This is a great new video from Veggie Tales. Check out the above trailer!  Big Idea Entertainment is proud to release their first new Easter holiday DVD in seven years, VeggieTales®: ‘Twas The Night Before Easter, available at Christian retail stores March 5, 2011 and everywhere March 8, 2011.  ‘Twas The Night Before Easter portrays how important it is to help other people while exploring the real meaning of Easter.   The DVD features plenty of fun music, silly songs, interviews and a backstage pass feature with Larry the Cucumber on the “VeggieTales Live!” tour, as well as a new character—Cassie Cassava—voiced by American Idol top finalist Melinda Doolittle.  

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?

Jakobi and Mason love this video.  They could watch these silly vegetables sing for hours!  I downloaded some coloring sheets for them, and you can get a cool coloring sheet of Veggie Tales too.  You can also have a chance to win your own Veggie Tales video.
