Synopsis: Uncle Nezzer is on a rampage to make Easter “bigger than ever!” In just one unforgettable day and night, Cavis and Millward (Bob and Larry) and a music box angel named Hope (voiced by Rebecca St. James) must convince Nezzer that Easter is about more than just candy and eggs. Inspired by Dickens’ Christmas classic, this VeggieTales film explains why people around the world celebrate Easter.
Dentyne has released an animated short poking fun at blogger stereotypes (mostly about how we sit alone staring at computers all day). The film is part of Dentyne’s Make Face Time campaign reminding everyone to take breaks from technology and spend more time together in real life. Not a bad message to send out to a generation that is obsessed with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc… Just make sure you do partake in that “real life” thing after you have visited The Animation Blog. Just saying.
