Big Idea Prods., creator of made-for-vid series “VeggieTales,” has announced it will launch its inaugural theatrical release, dubbed “Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie.”
The CGI-animated pic, now in production, is slated for a 2002 release.
The toon is a comic retelling of the classic Bible story of Jonah with VeggieTales’ signature wacky sense of humor.
“VeggieTales” fans will get a sneak preview of the film via a trailer, which appears on “Lyle, the Kindly Viking,” available after March 27.
Big Idea’s “VeggieTales” series has sold more than 20 million units to date.
