NEWS - First Trailer for The Magic School Bus Rides Again
Reported by NCZ on Wed Sep 6 2017

Netflix just premiered the first trailer for their upcoming reboot of the beloved mid-90s kids' show, The Magic School Bus.


Titled The Magic School Bus Rides Again, the series will see legendary funnywoman Lily Tomlin return to reprise her role as the seemingly-omnipotent Ms. Frizzle, who passes the keys onto her younger sister, Kate McKinnon's Fiona Frizzle. Liz, as ever, will be silent. Though the kids are seemingly all the same as the original, they'll likely be voiced by new actors. Finally, the series boasts a revamped, yet faithful theme song, performed by who else but Lin-Manuel Miranda.


View the trailer right down below.



The Magic School Bus Rides Again premieres September 29, 2017 on Netflix.

According to Stuart Stone (Ralphie from the classic series), some of the original voice actors will also be returning.

@thomwim I'm not going to give the animation a beatdown, but the character redesigns remind me of what happened with the "Backyard Sports" computer games.

They said it was gonna be CGI. They must have gotten cold feet and decided to play it cheap by using Flash instead.

God, it sickens me how much people value money over quality these days.

Flash is a type of CGI.

It all looks way too tame. The way Ms. Frizzle was designed by Nelvana there was just a hint of insanity behind her face. Here she looks so down-to-earth I'm not sure even Lily would be able to bring it out.

@AsianRambo38 Try to be patient. I know it's not what others thought it would, but try to take chances. Make mistakes. Think positive.

@NCZ I know.
Sometimes they say it other ways.

Like "Get melted", "Get eaten" or anything else like that.

Anyway, my point is to try to give it a chance and think positive. Perhaps there are some funny scenes.

This has high expectations from everyone (including myself). I just hope it can meet them, because if not it'll become as despised as the new PPG or Ben Ten. If it does however, I will be very happy. However what is with that animation? Did they blow the budget on getting Kate Mckinnon and Lin Manuel Miranda? Because that would explain why it's so cheap...

Fun fact! you can actually make rigged animation look GOOD. They didn't even try at least. Not to mention that the models are all the same bases for the kids just with different hair and skin tones.

The theme song is great. But yes the animation is looking stiff (not the original was a hallmark in that regard).

Absolutely awful looking. Worse than the new Tom and Jerry show and Arthur.

I love how most reboots have cheaper animation, like they don't care about looking good.

@Ghosty404 They know they'll get watched anyway because of the nostalgia.

Wow the animation looks pretty awful, cheap and nasty.
Let's hope the writing itself makes up for it.

I don't know about Kate McKinnon as Felicity Frizzle, and I don't think Lori Tomlin herself as aged well for the original Friz either; plus the animation looks rather cheap, as is the main theme song. But regardless it does look like a fun return of a classic series.

The animations looks kinda stiff and sterile but I'll give it a shot, hopefully the kids can work as well as the original.

Before anyone comments, make sure none of you jump on the negative occasion too quickly.

Try to start with "In my opinion", then say what your opinion is. Please.

I know reboots are different than the originals, but at least try to be patient and think positive.
