Sesame Street – The Magical Wand Chase
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 the curriculum, using the tapestry of the city to show kids that kindness is universal and new friends can be found anywhere.
