Sesame Street Announces New Magical Special

Filed under: News — Tags: — Joe Hennes @ 2:04 pm

With the news of the 48th(!) season of Sesame Street airing (more on that announcement here), Big Bird and his pals also announced a new prime-time special.

The Magical Wand Chase: A Sesame Street Special will air on HBO on November 11th.  The special will center on Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, Elmo, and Rosita as they get lost in New York City and have to find their way home (as well as Abby’s lost wand).

The cool part about the special is that it was all filmed on location, so we get to see Muppets in the real world.  Always a treat!

The special will also star Elizabeth Banks, who is a superstar.  She was great interacting with the Muppets (especially Scooter) on their short-lived sitcom, so she’s bound to bring her A-game once again.

The full description of the special is below:

Sesame Street’s 48th season begins with an all-new primetime special, starring Elizabeth Banks and filmed in three vibrant New York City neighborhoods.

While taking her friends on a magical hot air balloon ride, Abby Cadabby loses her wand to a curious bird, voiced by Banks. Without Abby’s wand, they can’t get back to Sesame Street. A chase ensues!

Pursuing the bird in their hot air balloon, Abby and the gang visit new neighborhoods and discover new foods, music, and languages. Best of all, they make new friends who help them find the missing wand and show them the way back home. Who knew there was so much to discover just around the corner?

The Magical Wand Chase is deeply connected to this season’s respect and understanding curriculum, using the tapestry of the city to show kids that kindness is universal and new friends can be found anywhere. (It also marks the first time the show has shot a feature-length special on location since 1994!)
