Rainbow Reels in partnership with Zackey Lime are excited to present The Trans Magical Academy, a three part, kid-friendly puppet series uploaded to our YouTube channel with closed captions on October 26th (10 mins), 28th (15 mins), and 30th (15 mins) at 7pm.
The Trans Magical Academy follows the story of Ronnie, a trans magical girl whose daydreams about what to wear on Halloween lead to the exciting discovery that she has been accepted into The Trans Magical Academy! The trilogy follows a journey of friendship and self-acceptance. But not everything is perfect, we learn that a certain “Miss Potato” (who doesn’t believe transmagic exists) has been trying to get the Academy shut down. When Ronnie learns that Miss Potato is the mother of her best friend, Harriet, she feels compelled to intervene & try to save her best friend and the Academy.
