Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9- Movie Review and Giveaway

It is always a pleasure to review family friendly movies, but add in one that is one created by Phil Vischer, creator of Veggie Tales, and well, you got me!  Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9, a fun twist of a tale mimicking Star Wars and Star Trek, that tells of one Buck Denver and his outer space adventures. Buck has one goal in life: to do big things for God.  In fact, he has a poster in his workplace that says just that- "God wants you to do big things!"  

 Buck and his workplace friends set out on a mission to take God's word to a remote place in space, Sector 9, that has lost it's transponder- the way they are able to hear the preaching of a famous pastor.  Buck thinks this will be his way to do something big and make a difference.  Through a series of crazy adventures, what Buck learns in the end is that only half of his poster is true- God wants YOU! Period.  Just you! Buck learns that having a dream is important, but more important are God's dreams.  We must learn to follow God's will, not ours.

God needs leaders who follow God's heart instead of their own

Pretty profound, don't you think?

So what did we think? 
Cute, cute, cute!  I admit to not knowing what to expect with this movie.  When it begins, it is clearly puppetry combined with animation  so I was not sure all the kids in the family would be impressed.   But, let me just say, the giggles started immediately.  And not just from the 8 year old! Our whole family laughed a lot and is STILL quoting lines. Yes. We are weird like that.

Like when Buck introduces himself as Buck, Buck Denver.  And then the other character calls him Buck Buck the rest of the movie.  He does try to correct him, but the guy tells him he likes Buck Buck better.

Movies are always better with pizza, right?

Above all though, are the Biblical truths that Phil Vischer is famous for embedding in his films. Through fun and laughter he conveys Gods's love for us, His plan for us, and how we must trust in Him!  When you watch his movies, Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9, you come away with a positive, Biblical message, Biblical truths, and clean family fun, appropriate for all ages.

I Choose Joy!


  1. An old favorite - Josh and the Big Wall! :)

  2. We love Jonah! I find myself singing the songs days later!

  3. Our favorite Veggietales would either be Lord of the Bean or Saint Nicholas. Both are watched frequently here.

  4. Do I have to pick just one favorite! I decided to ask Supergirl which was her favorite. I'm particularly fond of the Pirates Who Don't do Anything. Supergirl says that her current favorite is Minnesota Cuke. Since we're from Minnesota I guess I'll take that one. :D

  5. When I think of Veggie Tales, I think of the silly songs. My favorite silly song is Sports Utility Vehicle one, so whatever Veggie Tale that song is in, will be my favorite Veggie Tale. :)

  6. Our favorite Veggie Tales movie is The Lord of the beans.


Thanks for commenting. I love hearing from you!
