VeggieTales Announces Lord of the Rings Parody... Lord of the Beans
The much loved video series "Veggie Tales" has announced their latest (and most relevant... at least to us) video, "The Lord of the Beans".
I've been a fan of Veggie Tales since 1994 when I first caught a glimpse of the 1st video browsing through a bookstore... and ended up watching the entire 30 minute episode. The videos are smart, funny, and the humour's not just for kids. I haven't seen this one, but I'm confident I can recommend it!
Here's the synopsis:
Lord of the Beans follows the fantastic journey of a wide-eyed Flobbit named Toto Baggypants (Junior Asparagus) who inherits a bean with amazing powers from his Uncle Billboy (Archibald Asparagus). In this moving story, young Toto learns that he has been given an extraordinary gift -- but what is it for?
Together with Randalf, fearless ranger Ear-A-Corn, sharpshooting elf Leg-O-Lamb, and surly dwarf Grumpy, Toto forms the Fellowship of the Bean and embarks on a dangerous quest to find the answer to his question.
The journey takes them across the Mountains of Much Snowia, to the Elders of the Razzberry Forest, through the Blue Gate and into the desolate Land of Woe -- in search of an answer. Lord of the Beans is a touching tale that dramatically and comically illustrates how important it is to use the gifts God has given us ... for good.
