We’d be hard-pressed to think of a better person to host a children’s televisions show than Julie Andrews.
That’s why we could not be more psyched for Netflix’s upcoming “Julie’s Greenroom,” a half-hour kids’ program with puppets, celebrity guest stars like Idina Menzel and Alec Baldwin and original music hosted by the 81-year-old “Mary Poppins” star herself.
The Jim Henson production teaches kids about the performing arts and will begin streaming on March 17th. Andrews is writing, executive producing and starring in the series, in collaboration with her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton.
“We are huge arts advocates in the family,” Hamilton said at a Netflix press event on Wednesday. “And as individuals, we know firsthand how incredibly important it is. It is always the first thing to be cut, and yet we know that it teaches kids communications skills, critical thinking skills and bridges between countries and cultures.”
“You can find your identity through the arts if you try,” added Andrews.
Check out the trailer and get excited.
