Shout! Factory is bringing audiences of all ages a new Sesame Street special.
Sesame Street — The Magical Wand Chase is currently scheduled to be released Nov. 6 through a partnership between Shout! Factory and Sesame Workshop. Filmed across three New York City neighborhoods, the story presented in this new special follows Elmo and Abby Cadabby on a hunt for Abby’s wand.
A playful bird voiced by Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) takes Abby’s wand, leading her and Elmo to hunt down the wand across New York.Along the way, the duo learns valuable life lessons about making friends and cultural diversity. The pair can’t return to Sesame Street without Abby’s wand, though, so Elmo and Abby must find the wand before it’s too late.
As added bonuses, the DVD also features a trio of extras, the companion full-length episode The Golden Triangle of Diversity, full-length feature Elmo’s Alphabet Challenge and a downloadable storybook version of Elmo and the Lost Wand. The trailer for the new feature is streaming now here.
This new “movie” marks the first time since 1994 that Sesame Workshop has filmed a feature-length presentation on location. Pre-orders are open now. More information on this and other titles from Shout! Factory is available online now at:
