Fans of VeggieTales are probably already familiar with LarryBoy, the lovable superhero who protects and serves Bumblyburg.  In this story, LarryBoy learns that sometimes troubles are too big to handle alone.  With the help of some new superhero friends - ThingamaBob, S-Cape, Vogue, and Ricochet don their super suits to help their friend combat the Chillin' Villain, Dr. Flurry and his minion penguins.

I often tell my children that heroism does not require a lack of fear, but rather a large dose of faith and courage.  We should have a healthy respect of a dangerous situation, but also know that we cannot stand by and allow bad things to happen because of our worries.  That is what makes the hero.  The action, in spite of the possibility of personal harm.

This is a large part of faith, but it is also difficult to convey to children.  The League of Incredible Vegetables does a wonderful job showing that courage paired with faith is a winning combination.  God is indeed bigger than our fears.

It was very nice to see some of our favorite Veggies in Bumblyburg, and I love how the Big Idea Movies convey fear fairly accurately without using scary imagery that might be upsetting to children.

Special Features include the music video, behind the scenes footage, a Superhero Sing Along, A Theme Song Sing Along, a Parent's Guide to Raising Incredible Kids, and studio commentary.  there is a Silly Song included, ("Supper Hero") and if needed, there are English and Spanish subtitling options.

While waiting for the release, visit the League's very own website where you can learn more about the characters, watch videos, download the song, activity sheets, and parent pages. The theme song is from the Newsboys.

The movie will be available at select Christian stores tomorrow, Saturday, October 13th, and available in other retail locations, (including online sites) on Tuesday, October 16th.  There are some nice pre-order specials available, too.
