One World, One Sky: Big Bird’s Adventure


One World, One Sky: Big Bird’s Adventure

One World, One Sky: Big Bird’s Adventure is an educational  25 minute Sesame Street Movie about the night sky. I don’t want to give too much a way but Big Bird, Elmo and Hu Hu Zhu (their muppet colleague from China) team up to explore the stars.

Here’s a teaser:

One World, Big Sky is shown in the Einstein Planetarium of the National Air and Space Museum in DC.

Seeing this movie has been on my to-do list for a while and I didn’t expect to enjoy myself as much as I did. The day my daughter and I went the theater was filled with kids on a field trip. In unison the kids would all laugh, or sing along with the puppets. And the theater erupted into near chaos when Elmo made his appearance. The 360 degree dome screen made this movie experience even more exciting for the kids. I could easily see myself coming to see the film a few times a year, or making it a playdate event.
