Larry Boy returns in Veggie Tales movie

Christian parents who grew up watching Veggie Tales now are sharing the popular shows with their own kids. The producers, Big Idea Content Group and Kingstone Studios, have announced that a new feature film about Larry Boy will be released in theaters in 2026.

Veggie Tales is the absolute gold standard for faith-based children’s animation,” said Art Ayris, CEO of Kingstone Studios. “We couldn’t imagine a better brand in providing a big- screen treatment for kids than to bring Larry Boy and the cast of memorable Veggie Tales characters back into theaters.”

The Veggie Tales franchise remains the most successful faith-based children’s series of all time, generating more than $1.7 billion in retail sales. Big Idea has successfully released two theatrical films to date: “Jonah: A Veggie Tales Movie “(2002) and “The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything” (2008), which earned more than $39 million combined at the box office. The Larry Boy feature film will build on the legacy of the brand’s faith-friendly storytelling, zany humor and catchy silly songs that fans have come to know and love.

“Larry Boy is a fan favorite — who doesn’t love a superhero that has plungers on the side of his head?” said Leslie Ferrell, senior vice president of Big Idea Content Group. “With Larry Boy in the lead role, we know we can deliver an entertaining movie for the whole family.”

Although the title and plot details are being kept under wraps, producer Dan Merrell has gathered a team of writers who are excited to create Larry Boy’s first theatrical adventure.

“I’m honored to partner with Big Idea and Kingstone Studios on a new film, because I’ve loved Larry Boy for decades,” he said. “I believe both the existing fan base and new audiences are primed for a new Veggie Tales feature, one that not only reveres its classic past but also promises some thrilling, new surprises,” said Merrell, who is leading the development efforts behind the project.
