Since Netflix first announced its animated Carmen Sandiego reboot, news about it has been hard to come by. Now, the studio has dropped some tidbits for us to digest. They are intriguing images from the series and they also announced that it will arrive on January 18th. The 20-episode series will be divided into two periods: Carmen’s past that led to her criminal career, and the present-day heists that take place around the world.
The series will be voiced by Gina Rodriguez, who will also star in a Netflix live-action Carmen Sandiego film that will arrive later on in 2109. But for now, Netflix unveiled a few images from the animated series that keep with the style of the original teaser image.
The show has a sleek style that many are comparing to early ’00s Flash animation. It looks great. The plot, themes and other parts of the show are still a mystery. For instance, will it keep the educational aspect and bad puns? These things were some of what made the original games and TV shows so popular. I guess we will just have to wait and see. Hopefully, Netflix will have another hit on their hands with this latest endeavor.
