Welcome back to best movie websites! Let’s start the new year with a website review of one of the newest movies coming out in 2008 – and one of the best websites so far this year – The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movie. Veggie Pirates! Need we say more? The VeggieTales Movie Website is kid-friendly and adult and kid fun! One fun feature of the website is the “Talk Like A Pirate” link, clicking on it will pull up some of the movie’s veggies, and they will give you tips on how to talk like a pirate – the words are spelled out phonetically so you get the pirate lingo just right, and there’s even a button to press to hear the pirate phrase spoken like a pirate would! There are quite a few phrases from everything to the common “ayoy there” – (ah-hoy thayr) to the popular “avast ye scurvy dogs” (uh-vast yee scur-vee dogs). When you’re done, you can download a diplopma awarding you the title of “Honorary Veggie Pirate” on the Veggie Pirate Crew! Who are the veggies? Well, the website has a link to find out. The characters (Willory the aspargus, Robert the gourd, George the grape, Elliot the cucumber, Alexander, and Sedgewick) each have a link, and clicking on them will bring up their photos and biographies, complete with a clip of them in action.
Let’s move on to the fun stuff – games! You’ll find three games to choose from – Jump Ship! (six levels, can you make it? the boat moves faster each time…the prize? a Veggie Elliot buddy icon and a ship wallpaper), The Shipwreck Islands (sail through the islands safely while collecting and avoiding obstacles – prize is a cucumber wallpaper), and Me (Artichoke) Hearties (the easiest game, just a game of memory, match everything and watch a video). Another great feature of the site is the VeggieTales Printables! Print out doorhangers, bookmarks, growth chart, book cover, coloring pages and stickers!
Not enough to do yet? Check out the photo gallery for Veggie Movie Stills, Video for VeggieTales Movie Trailer, and Downloads section for more wallpapers, screensaver, and buddy icons. The movie is heavily merchandised, so check out the main page for links to buy shirts, soundtrack, and more. There you can also join the Pirate’s Fan Club, and enter a “Set Sail for Adventure” sweepstakes.
