Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? On Netflix, of course.
The globe-trotting international thief and criminal mastermind who first appeared in a series of educational video games in the mid-’80s is the protagonist of her very own Netflix animated series.
The reboot explores the origin story of Carmen (voiced by “Jane the Virgin” star Jane Rodriguez), with the trailer providing glimpses of the school where she hones her thieving ways as an agent of V.I.L.E.
But Carmen has a change of heart and decides to turn over a new leaf. She becomes a thief who only steals from other thieves, joined by best pal and sidekick Player (Finn Wolfhard of “Stranger Things”).
Carmen has appeared in television shows before, like the animated series “Where on Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?” which ran for four seasons until 1999. There was also the PBS game show “Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?,” which ran in reruns through the ’90s.
And Netflix is developing a live-action Carmen Sandiego movie, also starring Gina Rodriguez.
