‘Sesame Street’ Cast
- Anne Hathaway as Sally Hawthorne
- Bo Burnham (rumored)
- Chance the Rapper
Sesame Street has had two theatrically released movies, but both of them have seen cameos from famous faces.
Follow That Bird in 1985 featured cameos from Chevy Chase, John Candy, and Waylon Jennings. Elmo in Grouchland in 1999 had appearances from Mandy Patinkin and Vanessa Williams.
Since this new Sesame Street movie sounds like it will be more in the vein of Follow That Bird, I wouldn’t be surprised if we got a big ensemble cast of famous people like The Muppets movie from 2011, especially since the show just celebrated its 50th anniversary last year.
‘Sesame Street’ Plot
The story follows—Big Bird and his Sesame Street friends are mysteriously expelled from their neighborhood, finding themselves in Manhattan.
They team up with a plucky history show host Sally Hawthorne (Anne Hathaway) who’s on a quest to save her show and prove that Sesame Street actually exists, with obstacles created by the “evil” Mayor, with reasons of his own for keeping Sesame Street hidden from the world.
