Elizabeth Banks will play everyone’s favorite teacher in the live adaptation of the series that has made science exciting for the past 26 years. The mysterious antics of Ms. Frizzle continue to make learning fun for kids and the name evokes nostalgia for many adults who can still quote all the major catchphrases.
The bus first transformed from a series of children’s books into an Emmy-award winning animated series in the ’90s. In 2017, it was updated with The Magic School Bus Rides Again on Netflix, featuring Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) as Ms. Frizzle’s sister and a theme song from Lin Manuel-Miranda (Hamilton).
