When my children were young, they used to love watching Veggie Tales. One of my personal favorite episodes had Madam Blueberry. All of the Veggie Tales shows try to share neat little lessons in a family friendly way. The songs are upbeat and kids love to sing to them… at least mine did when they used to watch.

There are new Veggie Tales coming out periodically over the years. The newest one to hit is an all-new princess-themed DVD title, VeggieTales®: Princess and the Pop Star. It will be available on DVD at Christian retailers August 13th and everywhere August 16th. It sounds like good wholesome childhood fun.

This new DVD helps young girls understand that we are all created unique and special. There’s a special bonus; the new original song, “You Never Are” written and performed by this year’s Dove Award-winning Artist of the Year Francesca Battistelli. The DVD also includes the silly song sing-alongs, behind the music interviews, and “Princess Poppyseed’s Points for Being Uniquely You”. Yes, we love extra goodies.

Here are some images from the DVD below. Also, Movie Vine will be holding a giveaway! Details for a chance to win one copy of the DVD are at the bottom of this article

Synopsis: Princess Poppyseed’s life on her family’s farm is far from the glamorous but lonely world of her favorite pop singer Vanna Banana. On a chance meeting at a playground, Vanna and Princess cross paths and realize that they look almost exactly alike—which leads to the crazy secret plan where they decide to switch lives! As each girl realizes that the life they longed for doesn’t fulfill all of their dreams, they learn that the life God gave them is the one for which they were uniquely and lovingly designed.

  1. I used to want to be Wonder Woman.(Lynda Carter) I have been waiting for a remake of Wonder Woman. lol Thank gahome2mom/at/gmail/dot/com

  2. I wanted to be singer. I started singing at church when I was about 3. I was surrounded by all types of music and loved singing along with them!

  3. As an young girl, I was tall…I mean, really tall. I had long legs, red hair, freckles, and I needed braces. Awkward would have been a kind word for me! My best friend, Jen had unruly, curly hair, was painfully skinny, and, as the last of ten children in her family, was ignored frequently by them. We were both rather shy, and shunned any attention whatsoever. But Jen and I always secretly dreamed of becoming pop stars. And every weekend, in my unbearably pink, little girl’s bedroom, we would choreograph and practice for our burgeoning careers as Divas. We used to put on shows for our families, singing along at the top of our lungs to my old 33 1/3 record player. I can’t recall that either of us wanted to “be” any particular singer, we just wanted to let our voices be heard, and for two socially awkward girls, singing in such a ‘safe’ environment was the perfect venue. I recall that there was one song that we used to perform all the time. I suppose it was our “theme song”. It was called “Open Up Your Heart and Let the Sun Shine In”. Singing that song together is still something that Jen and I fondly remember, even now, nearly 40 years later. (that, and the bedroom that looked as if it was “hosed down in Pepto Bismol”).

    The funny thing is, Jen and I both went into music, although we never “hit the big time”. She works for NASA on the Space Shuttle program, but on nights and weekends she is a huge success on the local community theater scene, playing such roles as Marian the Librarian in the “Music Man”, Maria from “The Sound of Music”, and Mrs. Lovitt in “Sweeney Todd”, just to name a few. She married a man who also works for NASA, and, he too is an accomplished actor and vocalist. They met in the theater, when they were both the lead roles in “My Fair Lady”, and they have starred beside each other on many occasions ever since. It is amazing to me how the shy, awkward girl I once knew became the beautiful, confident woman she is today. But that is Jen. She is truly an amazing woman….period.

    I went onto to become a professional concert bassoonist, and a woodwind specialist. Prior to becoming an engineer, I performed in several different orchestras and woodwind ensembles and was a contract musician at Walt DisneyWorld, I still perform in my local orchestra and community theater productions, and play nearly every weekend at my church. Neither of us became Divas…but I do think that we still carry that love of music which was kindled in our hearts behind the closed doors of a shockingly pink bedroom, oh so many years ago. And that is the most important thing of all, don’t you think??

    I admire most and want to be a great man in the same way George Washington was. Leading many others to greatness and victory and giving strength and courage to others while helping them and risking my life for them.

    I’ve wanted to be a film star or a military leader for years and have been torn between where my heart truly wants to venture. To film and art or to Patriotic and service to my country. The latter wins out, but my loved ones wish me to stay.

    Being a star to me would give me more options to help others and do good for others. With the notability and fame that comes with being a star, comes the means and ability to do more for others.
