A reminder to all who haven’t heard: THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS WILL RIDE AGAIN…FUELED BY NETFLIX…IN 2016.
From the announcement via Mashable:Netflix and Scholastic Media announced in a press statement that the new series will use CGI animation to feature a “modernized Ms. Frizzle" and an "inventive high-tech bus” — so it looks like the companies are not afraid to take chances and make mistakes (and probably get messy in the process). The very 21st-century show will also focus on modern tech innovations, including robotics and wearables.
“The all-new episodes also leverage advancements in animation, science and technology in a way that will delight a new generation of young viewers, and like its predecessor, will help kids around the world discover the magic and value of exploration and innovation,” a press statement reads.
The Magic School Bus is the longest-running kids’ science series in history, first airing on PBS in 1994 and continuing in syndication for 18 consecutive years. It has even earned an Emmy Award. (Undoubtedly for Liz the Lizard’s acting.)
“Magic School Bus, the old version, is remarkably popular on Netflix,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer told The New York Times. “It teaches science in a way that transcends generations.”
Scholastic Media has not yet announced if the original Ms. Frizzle, Lily Tomlin, will return to voice the character.
And from a similar announcement via CNN:“To do an animated show that has actually encouraged young people to pursue careers in the sciences or teaching makes us very, very happy.”
— Forte, President, Scholastic Media
2016. The Magic School Bus. The original ship of the imagination.
