Think of it as a Schoolhouse Rock remix! A new show about rights and citizenship is coming to Netflix, packed with starpower and produced by the Obamas. We The People will fittingly premiere on July 4 and you can preview the trailer now.

The series will feature 10 animated videos that bring musicians and directors together to present civics lessons for the next generation. And it’s quite the list of talent: H.E.R., Lin-Manuel Miranda, Adam Lambert, Bebe Rexha, Brandy Carlile, Daveed Diggs, Janelle Monae and more! You’ll experience original compositions and songs as the soundtrack for the narrative.

Chris Nee, who formerly created Doc McStuffins and worked as an associate producer on Sesame Street, is the brainpower behind the new show. Barack and Michelle Obama are executive producers along with Higher Ground’s Tonia Davis and Priya Swaminathan and Black-ish creator Kenya Barris.

Your family can brush up on civil rights knowledge, courtesy of each three minute episode—and have a lot of fun along the way. Add this one to your watch list for the summer!
