Remember that time Twitter inspired the upcoming Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o film with Ava DuVernay as the director and Issa Rae as its writer?
Well, the internet is at it again, hoping to cast “Black-ish” star Tracee Ellis-Ross in a live-action adaptation of the 90s kid favorite, “The Magic School Bus”.
Netflix is already working on an animated revival of the beloved show, which also includes a book series.
Fans are pushing for Ross to play the interesting, fun, lively Ms. Frizzle, who drives the school bus from reality to science dreamland.
On Twitter, Josh Gwynn suggested the idea, and several users retweeted it in support. Fans responded with fan art, reactions and their preference for Duvernay and Rae’s involvement.
