Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9 – Review and Giveaway

BuckTrusting God with everything is difficult.  All to often I find myself trusting in my own strength and ability to tackle a difficult task.  It isn’t until things go awry (and they always do),  that I put my focus on God and ask him for help and guidance.

“Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9” tells the story of Buck Denver. Buck has big dreams of carrying God’s love to every corner of the Milky Way! In order for Buck to make his dream come true he needs a few things…things like a crew, a spaceship and his Captain’s license. When the transponder in Sector 9 stops working, Bucks jumps at the opportunity to make his dream come true.  He finds himself leading a real mission trip into deep space, but things don’t happen at all like he imagined.  If he is doing what God wants him to do, why is everything going wrong?

“Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9”  is part of the “Buck Denver asks…What’s in the Bible’ series.  It is created by Phil Vischer, who is also the creator of VeggieTales.  It teaches our children about God’s love through the use of puppets and CGI.

My children had very mixed reviews on the movie.  My 4 year old son loved the show and has watched it twice so far. My almost 6 year old daughter ran from the room crying when a little red alien popped on the screen.  She hasn’t come back to finish the show.  I was watching the show as well, and didn’t find it particularly scary, but whatever it was spooked her and she won’t come back.

The show has a great message to share with our children.  All too often we have big dreams and can’t see the opportunities that are right in front of us.  Buck learns the lesson of Love – When God puts someone in your path who needs help, help him.  It’s so simple.  We often dream of saving the entire world, but often forget to help that person right in front of us.

“Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9” also has a strong message of putting our trust in God to lead us through difficult times.  I love the way they explained this, through the use of Jellyfish and the current.  This was particularly relevant since we live on an island and often talk of the current.

“Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9” is a great Christian movie to share with the family on movie night. Galaxy Buck is available now on JellyTelly, an online streaming site featuring shows and movies to teach your kids about God, The Bible, and Faith.
