Star Wars makes a cameo in new Sesame Street trailer

(HBO)

You’re going to need some new directions to Sesame Street as of Jan. 16. The long-running children’s show is moving to HBO for its 46th season, and the network released its second trailer for the new season on Thursday.

HBO already shared the celebrity-packed first trailer for Sesame Street a few weeks ago, but this time your glimpse into the revamped show focuses on the iconic characters and all the pop-culture references you might expect. (Naturally, veritable pop-culture behemoth Star Wars makes an appearance.) The colors are noticeably enhanced against the plain white backdrop, and even in the vibrant settings Elmo explores, such as jungle ruins or the Old West. The trailer also promises that HBO will replay the show’s older 60-minute episodes as well as the new 30-minute installments.
