All the music, fun and values-based storytelling of VeggieTales return in two brand-new movies starring the veggie crew, whose antics are fresher than ever in Celery Night Fever, debuting on Aug. 5, and Beauty and the Beet, which premieres Oct. 14.
Actor Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Who Wants to be a Millionaire) stars – and sings – in Celery Night Fever, whilecountry-music superstar Kellie Pickler brings her unmistakable voice and irresistible charm to Beauty and the Beet.
“Having two brand-new movies premiere in the same year is pretty exciting news for any veggie – but starring right alongside Terry and Kellie is just dressing on the salad,” said VeggieTales stars Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber.
In Celery Night Fever, the retro funkadelic sights and sounds of polyester leisure suits and disco balls take center stage – along with a timeless message of friendship and forgiveness. Celery Night Fever debuts Aug. 5 exclusively on DVD.
In October – just in time for the holidays – the veggies return in the winter-themed Beauty and the Beet, an all-new take on the classic fairy tale. Pickler stars as Mirabelle, the sweet-potato lead singer of a family band that meets with unexpected trouble when an angry innkeeper makes them feel unwelcome. As she befriends the Beet and matches his harshness with loving acts, Mirabelle proves that compassion and kindness reap their own rewards.
Beauty and the Beet features seven original songs performed by Pickler, which will be collected on a companion CD that features a special rendition of “Deck the Halls” also sung by Pickler. The holiday album will be released to coincide with the DVD and will be available for download via iTunes.
These two all-new VeggieTales feature-length movies lead up to even more fresh, exciting news for VeggieTales fans: A brand-new Netflix original TV series, VeggieTales In the House, that will premiere on the streaming platform on Thanksgiving weekend.
