With Star Wars in the news so much these days, it's kinda cool that I get to offer to you a giveaway of a kids' DVD that sort of plays off of Star Wars and Star Trek! Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9 is from the creator of Veggie Tales, Phil Vischer. so it's as corny, funny, cute, and full of lessons from the Bible as you'd expect. I turned it on for my kiddos and, as I figured, my 7-year-old son was thrilled, while my three older daughters groaned and begged to watch something else. As it played, however, two of my girls, ages 10 and 13 wound up laughing along with my son (while rolling their eyes to let me know that they were definitely too old to watch it....;) ) It got a definite "YES" vote from my son.
About the movie:
Buck Denver has a simple dream - to save the galaxy. Working for the Galactic Mission Board, Buck dreams of carrying God's love to every corner of the Milky Way! Except he doesn't have a starship. Or a crew. Or even a captain's license. He just needs a chance. But when that chance comes and Buck finds himself leading a real mission into deep space, things don't go at ALL like he imagined! If he's doing what God wants him to do, why is everything going wrong? From VeggieTales® and What's in the Bible? creator Phil Vischer, Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9 is a wild, galactic adventure that teaches kids a powerful lesson about trusting God with everything - even our dreams!
