'Motown Magic' season 2 is around the corner and here's why we are excited about the return of the magical, musical show
Come June 28, season two of 'Motown Magic' will drop and along with that will come answers to some of our biggest questions about the show's season one
If you are a child or have one or even if you have a child-like heart – you are already a fan of Netflix's 'Motown Magic', and you’re probably as excited as we are for the upcoming season two of the show scheduled for release on Friday, June 28. The show is not just a great way to distract the young ones but is also a huge milestone in diversity.
'Motown Magic' is the story of Ben, a regular kid with a "crazy imagination". And to see someone like Ben on screen is incredibly meaningful and important for young people. The fact that the show has Black writers, animators, and voices behind the scenes is also quite praiseworthy, considering how rare it is in Hollywood. The Netflix show is the brilliant result of Black folk coming together to "create beautiful animations and build each other up along the way".
Ben's imagination is his special talent and that, along with his magical paintbrush, helps him transform his city by bringing colorful street art to life. Created by Josh Wakely, the show has a heavy musical influence and has a rich music library including some of the greatest hits of Smokey Robinson, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and The Jackson 5.
"I want to make sure that in 10, 20 years, kids are still talking about this music," Rolling Stone magazine quotes creator Wakely as saying. "It's Shakespeare; it's Dickens; it's Tolstoy. It's that good, and that's the reason it stuck around."
With the new season just around the corner, we are definitely excited about the new music that will come along with it. But, most importantly, we are looking forward to the mysteries that Ben and his friends will solve, including figuring out the true identity of the Maestro (PS: We think this Maestro is the god-equivalent to Motown).
Come June 28, season two of 'Motown Magic' will drop and along with that will come answers to some of our biggest questions about the show's season one. Who else is excited!
