“Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest one of all?” Everyone remembers this famous line from the popular fairy tale “Snow White” by the Grimm Brothers. What about telling the story in a biblical way? Big Idea, the creator of the popular children’s series Veggie Tales, recently released a new movie called “Sweetpea Beauty: A Girl After God’s Own Heart.”
The story is about an insecure Queen blueberry, a mistreated rhubarb maiden and a mirror that is known for its dark seeds of deception. After a decree is handed down that only the most beautiful can rule the land, Queen blueberry banishes the rhubarb maiden, Sweetpea, to the forest. With the help of a charming prince, a band of merry minstrels and seven snow peas, Sweetpea goes on a mission to save the queen from the deceptiveness of the mirror.
Also on the DVD is a featurette called “Snoodlerella” which is a twist on the classic fairy tale “Cinderella.”
Both movies, “Sweetpea Beauty” and “Snoodlerella,” give a very “veggie” approach on the lesson of true beauty through laughter and are a must-see for all ages. It might have a girly spin but is a lesson that every boy and girl needs to hear. This movie will make you feel good about who you are and will remind you that having God in your life is what means the most.
