Noah’s Ark is one of the most memorable events in the Bible for kids, and I was so excited when I found out VeggieTales was going to be make Noah’s Ark for their latest movie!
Disclosure: As a VeggieTales eVEGelist I received this DVD complimentary to facilitate my VeggieTales Noah’s Ark review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and those of my family.
About VeggieTales Noah’s Ark:
Noah and his family along with a zoo full of animals take an adventure aboard an orange slice ark. After 40 days and nights of rain, everyone’s faith has been tested, and they’re ready to jump ship. Will they chart a new course, or will they remember to trust God’s promises? Grab your umbrellas and find out in this VeggieTales re-telling of the beloved Bible story!
VeggieTales Noah’s Ark features Wayne Brady as Noah’s son Shem and Christian singer Jaci Velasquez as Shem’s wife, Sadie. As with other VeggieTales movies it starts with Bob and Larry hosting the show and taking a viewer question. The opening scene is funny because they’re making comments to each other about their appearance then say they should just address the elephant in the room…which happens to be Roger! I’m pretty sure our kids didn’t get the pun, but I thought it was great!
What I love about VeggieTales Noah’s Ark is that it focuses on trusting God’s plan even if it isn’t our own. I think this is something even we adults struggle with! The viewer is concerned that their new sibling is a girl because they really wanted a brother. I have totally experienced this scenario with our children, and I think it’s a scenario to which many children can relate!
They tie the concept into Noah’s Ark not only because Noah and his family had to trust God’s plan, but Shem also just got married and was ready to settle down and build a new home, but he obviously couldn’t! They even tied in the idea that disobeying God’s plan to follow our own can have negative consequences as Shem tries to think of ways to get off the Ark – but they aren’t God’s way!
I think VeggieTales Noah’s Ark hits the nail on the head with another fantastic lesson for kids, and our kids absolutely LOVE it. It is yet another great VeggieTales movie with a great lesson and great songs! If you’re looking for a family-friendly movie with a great biblical lesson, you will definitely want to get VeggieTales Noah’s Ark!
Have you heard? The VeggieTales Hotline is open 24 hours a day – and it’s free for kids to call (though, of course, they should still ask parents for permission!). Fans can reach Bob and Larry by calling (844) 2-VEGGIE.
