GLENDALE, Calif. (July 30, 2014) – All the music, fun and values-based storytelling of VeggieTales return in a brand-new movies starring the veggie crew, whose antics are fresher than ever in Celery Night Fever, debuting on Aug. 5.
Actor Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Who Wants to be a Millionaire) stars – and sings – in Celery Night Fever, in which the retro funkadelic sights and sounds of polyester leisure suits and disco balls take center stage – along with a timeless message of friendship and forgiveness.
Crews provides the voice of Bruce Onion, a nefarious real-estate developer who plans to turn the serene, green Celery Park into a parking lot. His unsavory scheme spurs Laura Carrot and Junior Asparagus to enact a bold plan: reuniting the long-lost ’70s band The Groovy Brothers to play at a fund-raising concert.
The problem is, The Groovy Brothers haven’t spoken to each other in decades, and the members have little interest in getting back together. Their long-simmering feud spills over to affect Laura and Junior. It’s not just Celery Park that’s in jeopardy – if best friends can’t learn to forgive each other and accept each other’s faults, the veggies might lose their cherished community gathering spot.
Celery Night Fever features six original songs, including a rousing number from Bruce Onion, showcasing the musical side of Terry Crews.
“I’ve been a fan of VeggieTales for the longest time,” said Crews. “To actually be a part of it is phenomenal. VeggieTales is good-hearted entertainment that I’m excited to share with my own family – plus, it’s awesome to be able to sing!”
Celery Night Fever, Filled With the Fun, Music and Lessons of VeggieTales, to Debut Aug. 5, Exclusively on DVD
