One TV movie production LifeSiteNews.com can wholeheartedly endorse is the Veggie Tale series by Big Idea Productions. What began in 1993 as a direct-to-video option for Saturday-morning fare is now, 27 episodes later, the world's best-selling faith-and-values-based property that is beloved by kids and trusted by parents.
On January 11, 2008, Universal Pictures and Big Idea, makers of 2002's wildly successful Jonah-A VeggieTales Movie, present The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything – A VeggieTales Movie. The CG-animated adventure, from Big Idea's enormously popular VeggieTales franchise is a new story of heroism in the beloved VeggieTales' world. Big Idea founder Phil Vischer and his partner Mike Nawrocki have brought another family friendly film to the big screen.
The new adventure follows three wanna-be hero vegetable pals zapped into the past and called to real heroism. The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything must each face their fears-becoming unlikely heroes in a battle to rescue a royal family from an evil tyrant, and themselves from living the life of common couch potatoes.
The latest in a franchise that has sold more than 50 million DVDs/videos since its 1993 inception, The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything-A VeggieTales Movie continues the hit series' faith-and-values-based lessons approach by illustrating to kids what it really means to be a hero.
