Silmaril Lord of the Beans.....

I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but (for all you Veggie fans out there) Veggie Tales is putting out a LotR parody called Lord of the Beans around Christmas 2005. It will star:
Quote:
Ear of Corn, Leg-o-Lamb...Toto...and all those guys.
That's quoted, because it came straight from the mouth of Larry the Cucumber. (my hero!) I have no guarantee of this, but we can all be hopeful! I wonder who will take the part of Gandalf.......

Cheers!

Mithhie



P.S. You moderator peoples can move this if it's not in the right place. You have my full permission. Not that that counts for anything.

you mean Archirbald Asparagus, Morai? Actually, he gets my brother's vote for Saruman. I don't think so though. I picture him as being either the "Narrator" (as he was in Lyle the Kindly Viking) or Denethor.

He is Mr. Nezzer! that's his given name. he's played Olaf in Lyle the Kindly Viking, King Xerxes in Esther, and, um, a couple other roles that don't come to my mind right now.

Cheers!

A veggie tales parody movie! Excellent! That is most non non non non non heinous! I must check that out! I can see Bob as Sam, Larry as Gandalf or Aragorn, and Archibald as Saruman! This will be sooo kewl!

Hmmm... can't say I'm a Veggie Tales fan, but I'll check it out nonetheless!

Lol, Perky, indeed it is not only nonheinous, but it is most triumphant as well! Bill and Ted rule!

Eye Ack! LOTR Veggie Tales!

My vote is so on Junior Asparagus to play Pippin. I totally agree with that random brother... Archibald is SO Saruman. Who can see Larry as Frodo, though. Come on. Maybe Bob as Sam, but... I think Larry is way better singing drinking songs with Junior A. After all, his nose is the same shape as Merry's...

Oh, that was mean. *starts to cry* I didn't mean it Dom, I really didn't.

"Oh, wherrrrre... is my carrot? Oh wherrrrre.... is my carrot? Oh, where oh where oh where oh where oh where oh where oh where oh where oh wherrrrre... is my carrot? Oops, I think I've broken it."

Clearly overreactin'.

I found the synopsis for it yesterday. It is technically for the book but I guess there are not very many changes between book and movie:
The Veggies are back in a brand new tale with all new characters, and a Flobbit who is given a special bean and longs to know what it’s for. Junior Asparagus plays the role of the Flobbit who is given a magical bean. At first, the Flobbit dreams of wonderful things that he can get with the bean, but then he wonders if there is a greater purpose for it. So he and his friends travel through the Razzberry Forest to get advice from the Trees, who send them to an unknown land. Will the Flobbit cave in to his desires to use the bean for lots of fun things? Or will he travel through the gates of a brand new land and discover that God gives us all special gifts that he wants us to use to help others?

Cooooooool, I definitely wanna see that parody.
I once came across a small comic parody called lord of the onion rings, (though i believe there might be more then one parody by that name) hilarious.

This is going to be awesome! I can't wait! Once more, Christmas time will signify the release of a LOTR movie!

I'll bet it will be Pa Grape.

Nah, I can see Archibald as Elrond for some reason.

Ugh! I can't stand Junior's voice! Especially when he sings!

I just bought a new VTs movie and looked at the previews. Lord of the Beans was there. the orcs are going to be sporks (half spoons and half forks) Gandalf will be played by Mr. Nezzar, Junior wil play Toto Baggy-pants, Pa grape will be Gimli , and I dont remember there names but the gorgs will be Legolas and Sam. Larry is playing Aragorn and it didnt look like there was a Merry and Pippin but the french peas would have been perfect for them.

It looks hilarious.

White Tree Lord of the Beans

Not sure if this is applicable to the Tolkien-only rule, but the chaps at Big Idea are working on a new video with a rather familiar-sounding title and, well, perhaps you'd better see for yourself:

Lord of the Beans

Are you serious?! Veggie Tales? That's hilariously awesome! lol!

A wide eyed Flobbit with the famous Randalf...and...Ear-A-Corn......This has GOT to be joke!!

Edit: Evidently it's not a joke. It says it's coming out in October...on DVD and VHS. Wow.

I think the characters look funny, but you just can't do certain stories.

I guess it’s more of a play on the story then being roughly the same.

Thumbs up

My friend told me something about this last year. I thought it would have been out by now. Sounds pretty good though. The fearless ranger Ear-A-Corn. Brilliant.

The movie looks awesome. I don't know if anyone has said this, but Toto's Uncle Billboy is played by Archibald Asparagus.

Speaking of parodies, has anyone ever read the book "Bored of the Rings"?
