FRANKLIN, TN (November 7, 2011) — Big Idea Entertainment, a leading studio and producer of children’s and family programming, characters and brands, announced today they will release VeggieTales®: God Loves You Very Much, on DVD and through digital download December 26, 2011 and January 10, 2012 in Christian and general market stores respectively.
VeggieTales: God Loves You Very Much is the follow-up title to the smash-hit VeggieTales DVD, God Made You Special. This release includes nearly 90 minutes of family-friendly content and features three fan-favorite VeggieTales stories that teach other valuable lessons about love, Gideon: Tuba Warrior, The Ballad of Little Joe and Rack, Shack & Benny. The title also includes an all-new “story-song” called Does He Love Me?, as well as other bonus features and activities.
“We want to help teach a powerful and lifelong lesson to kids and VeggieTales fans with the release of God Loves You Very Much just in time for Valentine’s Day,” said Greg Fritz, SVP Sales and Marketing of Big Idea Entertainment. “We feel it’s important to let them know that no matter what, they’ll always be loved.”
“Does He Love Me?” is the question the Veggie Kids ask Larry and the answer is found through a fun trip of song and rhyme that gives the answer — God loves you very much! Join Larry, Bob, Junior, Laura and their pals as they recount all the ways that God shows kids He loves them even when “they forget to blow their nose, or dirty up their clothes!” This new compilation features stories that show uniquely how God cares for us in all kinds of situations! With the classic VeggieTales episodes, kids also learn valuable lessons around love, including Gideon: Tuba Warrior (Trust), The Ballad of Little Joe (Facing Hardship) and Rack, Shack & Benny (Peer Pressure).
