Take the timeless and enchanting story of “Beauty and the Beast,” toss with the unique flavors of VeggieTales and blend in the sweet voice of country music superstar Kellie Pickler – and the result is BEAUTY AND THE BEET, a brand-new VeggieTales musical that premieres Oct. 14 exclusively on DVD and digital download.
Pickler (American Idol, Dancing With the Stars) brings her unmistakable voice to the role of Mirabelle, a sweet-potato singer whose family band is on the brink of superstardom. BEAUTY AND THE BEET blends the irresistible charm and appeal of VeggieTales with a heartfelt message about the importance of unconditional love.
A BEAUTY AND THE BEET companion CD, featuring 10 brand-new songs – including an all-veggie rendition of the classic Christmas carol Deck the Halls – will also be available in stores and on iTunes to coincide with the release of the movie on Oct. 14.
“All my nieces and nephews grew up with VeggieTales, and when they heard I was going to be in a VeggieTalesmovie, I immediately became the coolest aunt in the world!” said Pickler, who joins the VeggieTales cast on eight of the 10 songs on the BEAUTY AND THE BEET soundtrack. “Mirabelle may be a vegetable, but she’s beautiful through and through, especially her ability to show grace and compassion for everyone she meets.”
