VeggieTales - The Princess & The Popstar Review

When we got home from our Canada vacation, we found a great surprise waiting in our mailbox from the fun folks at Big Idea (otherwise known as the minds behind VeggieTales)--a sneak preview copy of the newest VeggieTales movie The Princess & The Popstar!
We're all pretty big VeggieTale fans, but Faith was especially excited for a girl themed Veggie story, and the Princess & the Pop Star did not disappoint.

As the cover states, the theme is a lesson in being yourself. In a play on the Prince & the Pauper, Princess Poppyseed, a farm girl, and Vanna Banana, a pop star, have a chance meeting where they discover that they look alike. Princess Poppyseed dreams of a life more glamorous than her family's farm while Vanna Banana dreams of a life less lonesome than her famous calling. The girls switch places with each other, only to discover that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. The life they already led is the life God wants them to lead and the one they were designed for.

F&B both really liked the episode, as did their sweet friend Abbey who got to preview it with them early. They were, as usual, giggling their way through the silly song in the middle; this time, it's "Astonishing Wigs", a bit of a fashion history.

The Big Idea people have also offered us a second copy of The Princess & The Pop Star to give away to one of our readers.

Leave me a comment telling me your favorite VeggieTales episode (mine has always been Rack, Shack & Benny) and make sure I have a way to contact you. For an extra entry or two, follow VeggieTales on Twitter and/or fan them on Facebook! The contest runs for a week and I will draw an entry next Sunday via Random.Org.

  8. My daughter saw a preview for this MONTHS ago and was so excited when our local Christian Book store teamed up with a local theater to show it a few weekends ago (For $1, too! great family deal!).
    I'm quite partial to the Super Silly Songs DVD - mostly because of one certain song. I'm sure you can't guess which one it might be....
