Leslie Ferrell, President of Big Idea Entertainment, said in a statement, "We're especially excited to be adding a celebrity okra to our star-studded cast of vegetables to give our new holiday DVD added fun and sparkle, while illuminating the core values of VeggieTales. Si Robertson is a perfect fit because, like VeggieTales, Duck Commander is all about celebrating faith and family."
