As much as people go on about the joy of streaming, a parent of a small child knows that when the internet goes down, they need something to keep their toddler happy. Luckily Sesame Street is still releasing DVDs. You can always pop that into the player to let the kid spend time with their pal Elmo. Sesame Street: The Magic Wand Chase comes out on November 6. You can let the kid watch the digital version while you wait in line to vote that day! The special episode includes the vocal talents of Elizabeth Banks from The Hunger Games. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:
SESAME STREET – THE MAGICAL WAND CHASE
COMES TO DVD & DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
NOVEMBER 6, 2018
FROM SHOUT KIDS AND SESAME WORKSHOP
The Emmy®-winning special featuring the voice talent of Elizabeth Banks comes to DVD for the first time
Los Angeles (October 10, 2018) – Winner of the 2018 Primetime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Children’s Program, Sesame Street – The Magical Wand Chase will be available on DVD and digital download on November 6, 2018 from Shout! Factory and Sesame Workshop. The primetime special is filmed in three vibrant New York City neighborhoods and marks the first time the show has shot a feature-length special on location since 1994.
It’s up, up and away as Elmo, Abby, and friends take to the skies above Sesame Street in colorful hot-air balloons in this exciting special. When a playful bird, voiced by Elizabeth Banks, snatches Abby’s magic wand, the pleasant ride becomes a high-stakes adventure through the streets of New York City. Between making new friends and learning about different cultures, our heroes must recover the wand in order to return home to Sesame Street!
When Abby and the gang visit new neighborhoods throughout The Magical Wand Chase, they discover new foods, music, and languages. Best of all, they make new friends who help them on their quest to find the missing wand. The Magical Wand Chase is deeply connected to Sesame Street’s mutual respect and understanding curriculum, using the tapestry of the city to show kids that kindness is universal and new friends can be found anywhere.
Bonus features include the full-length feature Elmo’s Alphabet Challenge and another exciting adventure, the full-length episode The Golden Triangle of Destiny.
Currently in its 48th season, Sesame Street is the longest-running program in children’s television and has received more Emmy® Awards than any other show in television history.
