Nobody wishes upon a star anymore — now, it’s all about the pickle.
The primetime special Sesame Street — When You Wish Upon a Pickle is coming to digital this June, featuring appearances by Blake Lively and Amanda Seyfried.
In this Shout! Factory and Sesame Workshop production, a mysterious wishing machine gets delivered to Sesame Street, with a magical, talking pickle living inside. Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, and Ernie find their wishes coming true after they talking to the pickled wizard, but not everything goes according to plan.
When Elmo wishes to grow up and run Hooper’s Store, he switches bodies with Chris. When Ernie tries to help his friend score a job as a TV meteorologist, Bert ends up trapped inside the television. Cookie Monster wishes for — what else — more cookies, but instead, gets more Cookie Monsters. Abby wishes for her favorite storybook detective (played by Seyfried) to come alive to help figure out what the heck is going on. In the end, the Sesame Street gang learns that if they believe in themselves, they can be anything they want to be — without any magic necessary.
Sesame Street – When You Wish Upon a Pickle will be available for digital download on Tuesday, June 2.
