This was the first VeggieTales straight-to-video release to have a 52-minute-long feature, which then became the standard length. All previous entries (except for the Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie (2002) theatrical release) had been shorter. See more »
This is a really great movie! I watched it with my three-year old brother, and he loved it. Anyway, I was curious to watch this because I wanted to see how closely it resembled Lord of the Rings. I'm a nerd, okay? And it is very similar. Almost word-for-word, well, not quite. And the music is really fascinating and eerily similar to the Trilogy.
Some scenes are a bit confusing for younger kids, but the message is pretty clear (people's gifts and how they don't get to choose them, but can choose what they do with them). I laughed and (shamefully) enjoyed it.
Big Idea is a really great company, and I like the work that they do. I learned a few things myself from this movie!
So I'd suggest it to anyone with kids 6 and under. Definitely!
