Get ready as Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber and the rest of the Veggie gang set sail on a whale of an adventure in Jonah. Filled with music, laughs, and some of the silliest adventures ever to be swallowed whole, this is the story of Jonah and the whale as you've never seen it before – a story where everyone learns that one of the best gifts you can give – or get – is a second chance.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie is a full-length faith-based morality tale like all of the films and products in the Veggie Tales franchise. The moments of peril, such as a raging storm at sea, a van careening out of control on a country road, and Jonah and friend being swallowed by a whale (and worrying about dying), are handled with such a light touch that they are unlikely to scare most children. Jonah may be tossed into the water, but he is wearing a very reassuring ducky lifesaver ring, and the credits explain that no vegetables were hurt in the making of the movie. Jonah’s story references only the Old Testament, except for the presence of a gospel choir and visual images of the cross in one sequence.
