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!
My kids love VeggieTales, to be honest, I still love VeggieTales ever since my own childhood. More recently we have discovered, What’s in the Bible as well. Now, What’s in the Bible’s own Buck Denver is Galaxy Buck. While I am still new to experience What’s in the Bible, a few episodes in through RightNow Media I’m already enthusiastic about sharing it with my kids and the individual DVD of Galaxy Buck: Mission to Section 9 is a great thing! We were blessed by being given access to an early preview streaming of the DVD to be released on October 20th. My girls loved it! Even the Rascal stayed in the room and watched part of it.
The Princess said that the aliens scared her. While AppleBlossom said she couldn’t believe that Buck saved the alien, but that she sees how our own Frontier Girls motto reflects the message in the movie with “See a need, take the lead.” Then we discussed what Jesus would want and the importance of people who you least suspect like the apostle Paul.
Overall the film was short enough to even entice the butterfly attention-span Princess but long enough to make the girls think they were getting a movie treat. I think this is the beginning of an excellent new series.
Galaxy Buck is available now on JellyTelly, an online streaming site featuring shows and movies to teach your kids about God, The Bible, and Faith.
