The singing cucumber that filled many people's homes is coming to the big screen when LarryBoy from VeggieTales, is getting his own faith-based feature film in 2026.
Although details of the film have not been released, Big Idea Content Group and Kingstone Studios announced the collaboration to bring the loveable, plunger-eared, crime-fighting vegetable superhero to the big screen for the first time.
"I'm honoured to partner with Big Idea and Kingstone Studios on a new film because I've loved LarryBoy for decades. I believe both the existing fan base and new audiences are primed for a new VeggieTales feature, one that not only reveres its classic past but also promises some thrilling, new surprises," said Producer Dan Merrell.
"VeggieTales is the absolute gold standard for faith-based children's animation. We couldn't imagine a better brand in providing a big screen treatment for kids than to bring LarryBoy and the cast of memorable VeggieTales characters back into theaters," said Art Ayris, CEO of Kingstone Studios. "Kingstone focuses on epic content and Big Idea is the perfect partner for launching a new LarryBoy feature into theaters for families to enjoy worldwide."
VeggieTales has seen a lot of success over three decades. The new project is going to continue the tradition of faith-friendly storytelling while mixing in some catchy tunes that have defined the VeggieTales brand.
"With LarryBoy in the lead role, we know we can deliver an entertaining movie for the whole family," senior vice president of Big Idea, Content Group Universal Pictures, Leslie Ferrell said in a release.
The VeggieTales franchise remains the most successful faith-based children's series of all time, generating over $1.7 billion in retail sales.
