Really good message!

Princess and the Pop Star reveals an excellent message of how God created you just the way you are. Your child will really appreciate that he or she doesn't have to wear the latest trends in clothing or worry about being good at extracurricular activities. They are wonderfully made in God's eyes! They'll also learn that God has a plan for them. "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm 139:14

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Humor, catchy/clever music, a simple story, and likable characters, make this VeggieTale movie entertaining, engaging, and easy to understand. Its messages about "being yourself" and "appreciating what we have" are closely tied to religious teachings about God's love and plan for each person.

That said, the episode is a little less than even-handed in that Princess readily learns the value of her productive and close family life on the farm, while Vanna's solitary, glamour-rich life is never really seen as desirable. It's her mother who sees the light and promises to make changes on Vanna's behalf.
