Galaxy Buck: Mission To Sector 9 Review & Giveaway


In a new adventure from "What's In the Bible" creator Phil Vischer, the familiar character Buck Denver embarks on a new adventure with many familiar faces. I got the chance to check it out before it was released, and I was impressed.
A space adventure that appeals to parents with it's fun references to Star Wars and Star Trek, it appeals equally to the kids with the fun characters, silliness and adventure they love.  A clear message can be learned by even the young watchers.

My five year old really enjoyed this video.  While not a space adventure fan, she found opportunity to laugh, question, learn and enjoy.  She walked away from watching, and a few hours later I found her making a poster like the one at the end of the video, so she could hang it in her room and remember that God wants her.  She picked up on so much more than I expected, and I was thrilled about that!

Not necessarily a Star Trek or Star Wars fan myself, I have been exposed to it through my husband many times and picked up on several funny references, so I found myself enjoying this video for the lessons it was teaching my kids as well as the entertainment factor.

Phil Vischer does a fantastic job of reaching kids with his characters, and keeps them engaged with the kid humor as well as the lessons they learn.  Another win in my book, and a video I will definitely be recommending to my friends.

About the movie:
Buck Denver has a simple dream - to save the galaxy.  Working for the Galactic Mission Board, Buck dreams of carrying God's love to every corner of the Milky Way!  Except he doesn't have a starship.  Or a crew.  Or even a captain's license.  He just needs a chance.  But when that chance comes and Buck finds himself leading a real mission into deep space, things don't go at ALL like he imagined!  If he's doing what God wants him to do, why is everything going wrong?  From VeggieTales® and What's in the Bible? creator Phil Vischer, Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9 is a wild, galactic adventure that teaches kids a powerful lesson about trusting God with everything - even our dreams! 
Run time: Approximately 40 minutes
