From the creator of Veggie Tales comes Phil Vischer's latest Buck Denver adventure. Galaxy Buck: Mission To Sector 9 is a must-see for children of all ages. My little ones are 7, 5, and 2 and they all loved this new movie. This movie will be available for purchase starting on October 20th so don't miss out on your chance to own it for your family.
Buck Denver put together a team to go into space (Sector 9) to fix a transponder. It is sort of a spoof about Star Wars or Star Trek (which I absolutely love...I am a nerd). He wants to do something "Big" for God and fixing this transponder will help others to have access to the Good News of Jesus. When he arrives on the planet (that is supposed to be uninhabited) he meets a man who teaches him all about God's plans for our lives.
Buck learns that walking with Jesus is the most important thing in life. The way we know we are walking with Jesus is by the "fruits of the spirit" found in Galatians. We must learn to hear God's voice and be obedient to what He wants us to do. If He puts someone in our path we must do everything we can to help them. That is showing God's love to others.
This movies explains how a relationship with God works and what it looks like. Buck thinks he must do something extraordinary in order to serve God but the man he meets on Sector 9 explains that all Jesus really wants is us. He wants our whole heart.
All three of my boys laughed and enjoyed this short film. The puppets are amazing, as usual. Phil Vischer does a great job of explaining doctrinal and theological ideas on a child's level. My children asked questions afterward and told me the things they learned while watching this movie.
The movie is approximately 40 minutes long so it holds a child's short attention span. It covers topics such as missionaries, fruits of the spirit, God's plan and purpose for our lives, and how to truly know you are walking with Jesus. I highly recommend this movie and plan to purchase it for my children for Christmas.
Just in case you can't wait until you buy the DVD, this movie is available on JellyTelly right now.
