We didn’t think we could be more excited about the Gina Rodriguez-voiced Netflix reboot of Carmen Sandiego if we tried, but we were SO wrong. The the first image for the new series is here and we’re a little overwhelmed.
Unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait for the new series until 2019, but those two years will give a whole new meaning to the phrase “highly anticipated series.” The upcoming series will focus on Carmen’s past, which is so ~trendy~ since everybody seems to be on board with movies and shows delving into classic villains and their backstories.
Behold: the first image of the new Carmen Sandiego, super thief. Omg.
She looks even better than we remember and we’re even more excited than we EVER knew.
For those of you who missed out on the best part of childhood which was the Carmen Sandiego computer games and various other media, Carmen Sandiego is a super thief and head of V.I.L.E., and you, when playing the game, would be an agent for the ACME Detective Agency, and try to track her down. In the process you’d learn all kind of cool stuff, like how to preserve a mummy (we have a very vivid memory of the Egypt portion of the PC game, okay?), but we never really knew who Carmen Sandiego was. So the idea of delving into her ~origin story~ is a great one.
Basically, this show is everything we have ever wanted and we’re printing this image out and pasting it all over our walls and you can’t stop us.
