TBN and Big Idea Content Group announced they will form a partnership to produce new and original episodes of VeggieTales.
In Fall 2019, TBN will air each episode of VeggieTales which will remain true to the classic brand. The classic brand of VeggieTales delivered clever storytelling, bible-based lessons, and, of course, memorable songs for the whole family.
The first episode will be a Christmas special that will premiere during the holiday season on TBN. In this new special, Bob, Larry, and the entire VeggieTales cast bring a fresh new take on the promise of Christmas in “God With Us”. Subsequent episodes will be on a nine-week feature on the fruits of the Spirit, and new adventures with LarryBoy and the League of Incredible Vegetables.
Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki will reprise their roles as the voices of Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber. They will additionally join the creative team run by Todd Waterman (Mulan, Transformers Prime). Content will be provided through 2021.
“TBN is excited to partner with Big Idea Content Group to bring new life to a much-loved children’s brand,” said Tom Newman, Head of Development and Production, TBN. “These all-new episodes will re-introduce VeggieTales to existing fans and remind new ones the importance of presenting biblical values through high-quality children’s entertainment.”
Faith Filled Family Magazine was honored to once again interview Phil Vischer on the upcoming series wherein he discusses his inspiration, and what families can expect from this new series.
If you are a VeggieTales fan (like most adults and children alike are) then let the countdown begin!
Our interview with Phil Vischer will be released in our December issue of Faith Filled Family Magazine coming out on November 26, 2019.
