We have all been waiting for more details about the new Magic School Bus reboot, and now that we have them, we may not be ready for it.
The trailer for the new season of The Magic School Bus Rides Again has been released and I can honestly say we aren't sure how to feel. It is very different from what we were expecting, and while it was nice that the original Ms. Frizzle made an appearance, the rest is a lot to absorb.
So we all knew that Kate McKinnon was going to be playing the new Ms. Frizzle, but what we didn't know was that she was actually the sister of the original Ms. Frizzle. Lily Tomlin looks as though she will make an appearance in the show to hand over the keys to the bus.
The preview introduces the new Fiona Felicity Frizzle, who will be taking the kids on a new set of adventures, but they look a lot different than they used to.
The animation style has changed a lot from the original show, which while we expected some difference, it was still a shock. It'll definitely take some getting used to compared to the show from our childhood we spent so much time watching.
The other thing that is a bit different? The theme song! The song is still the same lyrics, but it has a new very famous singer: Lin Manuel Miranda! The theme actually has a super similar feel to the original, just redone as a new version to match the new show.
The trailer is a sneak peek into the show, what else should we expect?
The show will obviously take us on a bunch of fantastical field trips that make our old museum trips look like a waste of time. We never once traveled into space!
So far it looks like there will be some adventures under the sea, back out into outer space, and then maybe even back in time.
You will have to watch it yourself to see if you're into the style of the new show, but it is pretty weird to see these characters in a whole new way.
