Millennials with little kids, it’s our time to shine—”Blue’s Clues” is getting its first live-action movie, and all of the show’s hosts are reuniting on-screen to star in it. So yes, that means our beloved OG host Steve Burns will be in it, too.
“Blue’s Big City Adventure” will feature Blue and the show’s current host Josh, played by Josh Dela Cruz, on a trip through New York City as they sing and dance all over the city and meet people along the way. Those people include BD Wong, Ali Stroker, Taboo, Alex Winter, Phillipa Soo and Steven Pasquale.
(No word yet if Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper will be joining the gang on this adventure, but one can hope.)
Josh and Blue are all set to audition for Rainbow Puppy’s Broadway musical, until Josh realizes he forgot his—yep, you guessed it—handy dandy notebook at home. In order to navigate the big city without it, they find Steve to help them out.
In the trailer, we see Steve Burns as he opens the door to the viewer’s POV and asking, “You? Is it you?”
The show’s second host, Joe, will also be in the film as all three hosts are finally on-screen for the first time together.
Last fall, millennials everywhere received a heartfelt, personal message from our old pal Steve from “Blue’s Clues” when he shared a video in honor of the show’s 25th anniversary.
In the video (which of course went wildly viral at the time), Steve explained that he abruptly left the show in 2002 because he decided to go to college. (And yes, he’s wearing his iconic green rugby shirt all these years later.)
“You remember how when we were younger, we used to run around and hang out with Blue and find clues and talk to Mr. Salt and freak out about the mail and do all the fun stuff?” he said. “And then one day, I was like, ‘Oh hey, guess what? Big news, I’m leaving. Here’s my brother Joe, he’s your new best friend,’ and then I got on a bus and I left and we didn’t see each other for like a really long time? Can we just talk about that? Because I realize that was kind of abrupt.”
He thanked all of his now-grown viewers for helping him through his life.
“I wanted to tell you that I really couldn’t have done all of that without your help. And in fact, all the help that you helped me with when we were younger is still helping me today, right now. And that’s super cool,” Burns said. “I guess I just wanted to say that after all these years, I never forgot you. Ever. And I’m super glad we’re still friends.”
Yep, cue the waterworks. Steve’s just the best, isn’t he?
The new “Blue’s Clues” movie will be available for streaming on Paramount+ starting Friday, Nov. 18.
