Lin-Manuel Miranda Updates 'Magic School Bus' Theme Song for Netflix Reboot
Lin-Manuel Miranda is adding yet another line to his résumé.
The mastermind behind Hamilton and recent Oscar nominee has produced a new take on The Magic School Bus theme song for Netflix's upcoming reboot of the fan favorite.
Netflix debuted a snippet of Miranda's new version Tuesday in the official trailer for The Magic School Bus Rides Again, ahead of the animated series' Sept. 29 debut.
The new episodes see Kate McKinnon take over for Lily Tomlin. However, Tomlin —- who also stars on the Netflix live-action comedy Grace & Frankie — returns to voice the beloved Ms. Frizzle, who is now Professor Frizzle as she hands over the keys, literally and figuratively, to her younger sister, the new Ms. Frizzle (McKinnon). Once again, the show is set at Walkerville School as the new resident Ms. Frizzle takes her students on a variety of crazy (and educational!) field trips that span the Internet, the continents and even extend to the Sun itself.
