As a child, I remember watching the original Magic School Bus off of recorded VHS tapes. And now, that beloved yellow bus is making a magical return. The trailer for the new Netflix Original reveals Ms. Frizzle handing the keys to the bus over to her younger sister Felicity Frizzle. Felicity is voiced by Kate McKinnon, famous for her role on Saturday Night Live and as Jillian Holtzman in the revamp of Ghostbusters. The Ms. Frizzle that we all grew up with will be voiced by Lily Tomlin, the original voice actor.

In the trailer, Netflix revealed a modern theme song that is sung by Hamilton star and playwright, Lin Manuel Miranda. The show will premiere with its first fun-filled season on September 29th. This reboot is a great opportunity for a new generation of kids to get interested in the world of science and to rekindle the interest of older generations.
