FRANKLIN, TN (May 1, 2012) - Big Idea Entertainment, a leading studio and producer of children's and family
programming, characters and brands, announced today they will release a brand-new DVD title, VeggieTales®: The
Penniless Princess-God's Little Girl, on August 11 and August 14, 2012 in Christian and general market stores
respectively. This title follows the release of the top-selling VeggieTales®: Sweetpea Beauty-A Girl After God's Own
Heart and VeggieTales®: Princess & the Pop Star, both of which featured lessons of specific interest to young girls.
The DVD's story is based on the children's book, A Little Princess, by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and helps to teach an
important lesson about knowing your own true worth inspired by Philippians 4:8, as well as trusting God, no matter what
happens in life, based on Romans 8:39. VeggieTales: The Penniless Princess-God's Little Girl includes plenty of
engaging and fun music fit for families, with the all-new Silly Song "Best Friends Forever" and the featured song "No
Matter What," both in sing-along versions in the DVD bonus features. Other bonus features include a special tour of
London with the popular French Peas characters, a hilarious look at the history of the Teddy Bear, a discussion guide for
parents and behind the scenes clips.
"Parents are longing for media with a message that helps their little ones understand their unique value and true worth,"
said Greg Fritz, SVP Sales & Marketing of Big Idea Entertainment. "Our 'penniless' princess is the opposite of traditional
royalty – she's not wealthy and she's not glamorous. Yet she is rich with faith, hope and love and forgiveness – qualities
that help her face life with strength of character and a strong sense of worth, which is a treasure that will last a lifetime."
Sweet Sarah Crew has everything a little girl could want – a loving family, lots of friends and a closet full of frilly dresses!
But when life takes a turn and Sarah goes from riches to rags, will she realize that her true worth lies not in what she has,
but what she has in her heart? Find out in this inspiring new story from VeggieTales that reminds kids who they are in
