Scholastic Media Launching The Magic School Bus 360° As Netflix Original Series In 2016

11 June 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Not only a show that made an amazing impact on the world of children’s programming, but one that continues to hold up, The Magic School Bus is a show still enjoyed by millions of kids (including my own) around the world.

In the grand tradition of that show (no pressure), Scholastic Media, in a joint announcement with Netflix, has announced The Magic School Bus 360°, created and produced by Scholastic Media, launching exclusively on Netflix as a Netflix Original Series, with Scholastic Media President, Deborah Forte, as Executive Producer.

Unfortunately, you have to wait until 2016, but the news hits a lot of positive notes, from a variety of angles. A return of The Magic School Bus franchise means not only a chance for kids to engage with science in the home, but also opens the door for countless other opportunities in the form of books and other materials to be used in classrooms. »

Steven Spielberg directing Roald Dahl's 'The Bfg' film

25 April 2014 6:58 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

This is a Bfd: Steven Spielberg is directing a big-screen version of Roald Dahl’s children’s novel The Bfg.

The filmmaker is joining forces with E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial screenwriter Melissa Mathison for the first time in more than 32 years to bring to life Dahl’s story of children-gobbling giants and the little girl who tries to stop them.

The Bfg of the title refers to a “Big, Friendly Giant,” who joins forces with the little girl to stop his monstrous brethren. Also taking part in their quest: none other than the queen of England.

Looking back at big screen Roald Dahl adaptations

1 March 2014 12:56 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Mark Harrison 3 Mar 2014 - 07:02

From James Bond to Willy Wonka, Matilda to The Witches, we chart the big screen work of Roald Dahl...

Roald Dahl has often been referred to as one of the greatest storytellers for children in the 20th century. His books have delighted children for generations, with their dark and inventive sense of humour and their eccentric, dastardly adult characters.

Likewise, his written work for adults has just as much wit and creativity, and over the years, he also worked as a screenwriter on a number of projects, including TV work on Alfred Hitchcock Presents and his own anthology series, Roald Dahl's Tales Of The Unexpected.

Given how it doesn't even take the likes of J.K. Rowling and Stephanie Meyer five years to have their popular works adapted by Hollywood, there has inevitably been an extensive crossover between Dahl's written work and the big screen. »

Tenacious Eats Presents “Westrospective” – Wes Anderson Month at ‘Movies for Foodies’

20 February 2014 9:07 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Director Wes Anderson’s newest The Grand Budapest Hotel, opens March 21st. The trailers trot out the usual Anderson calling cards: dry humor, beautiful shots, a killer soundtrack, and of course, Bill Murray Jason Schwartzman, and Owen Wilson. So much seems borrowed from Anderson’s earlier films that he might as well be following a checklist but though the director has consistently divided audiences, his films have always won over his many loyal supporters.

The chefs at Tenacious Eats are big fans of Wes Anderson and they have christened the month of March “Westrospective – Wes Anderson Month” as part of their film series Movies for Foodies. This is a one-of-a-kind event where food is prepared and plated in front of you while you watch a film on the big screen. Tenacious Eats only works with locally produced food procured by them and hard-to-find ingredients imported from places that specialize in them. »
