Oh my goodness, how I loved The Magic School Bus. Lily Tomlin was the best. My kids love it too….and now, the kids are back at Walkerville School for another school year of astonishing, out-of-this-world field trips in this all-new reimagining of the iconic science-comedy-adventure series The Magic School Bus.
But this year, there’s a new Frizzle (Kate McKinnon)! The younger sister of the famed Professor Frizzle (Lily Tomlin) has taken over the classroom! But worry not – the new Ms Frizzle shares her sister’s zany ways and passion for science. Field trips this year are wilder than ever, into the clouds, across the internet, riding the continents – even a plunge into the depths of the Sun itself! And along the way, the kids we know and love bring their science investigations into the 21st century – still taking chances, making mistakes and getting messy!
And get this… it’s debuting with a reimagining of its classic theme song sung by none other than Lin-Manuel Miranda!
The Magic School Bus Rides Again premieres exclusively on Netflix on September 29, 2017.
