Big Idea Entertainment, a leading studio and producer of children’s and family programming, characters and brands, announced today they will release a brand-new DVD title, VeggieTales®: The Little Drummer Boy, on October 1 and October 4, 2011 in Christian and general market stores respectively.
VeggieTales: The Little Drummer Boy is a heartwarming tale that retells the classic The Little Drummer Boy story. The DVD offers a timeless message of hope during the holiday season, and will feature multi-Grammy and Dove Award-winning artists BeBe and CeCe Winans, singing their version of the iconic “The Little Drummer Boy” song. Additional music will include original songs such as, “Can’t Smile Without Ewe,” and the all-new silly song, “The 8 Polish Foods of Christmas.” The title includes special bonus content and activities, and helps to teach the important lessons about giving to others and the power of forgiveness. VeggieTales: The Little Drummer Boy is supported by a comprehensive marketing and advertising campaign, with licensing and promotional partners on board as well, including World Vision®, Brothers All-Natural® and Good Health Foods® among others. Big Idea Entertainment also plans to host a series of live events nationwide at select retailers and churches to coincide with the DVD release date.
“The holiday season wouldn’t be the same without watching the story of The Little Drummer Boy, and singing or listening to the iconic song” said Greg Fritz, SVP Sales and Marketing of Big Idea Entertainment. “We are honored to put together such a fun VeggieTales twist on this classic tale, while helping to spread a memorable message to kids about giving to others even if they think they have nothing to give. We feel fans and families will also be delighted with the inspirational music we’ve incorporated into this show, including the title track from renowned artists BeBe and CeCe Winans.”
