Seatbelts everyone! There's a live-action Magic School Bus movie in the works and it's definitely one of the most fascinating films in development right now. For starters, Elizabeth Banks will be playing the iconic role of Ms. Frizzle! Considering she fulled off the wonderfully whimsical Effie Trinket for the Hunger Games films, I think Banks will be PERFECT as the over-the-top field trip loving teacher.
We do not have many details on the film beyond Banks' casting, so these are my biggest questions:
-When is this film adaptation coming out (guessing 2022 or 2023 at the earliest)
-Who will play Arnold, the timid student who frequently says "maybe I should have stayed home today"?
-Will the movie be one big field trip, or several?
-How many different forms will the Magic School Bus itself take? (submarine, airplane, spaceship, microscopic vehicle etc)
