Gina Rodriguez’s CARMEN SANDIEGO Reboot is Now a Live-Action Movie

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Only geography geniuses ever seem to know. But last year we found out where she would be going, when Netflix announced the famous fugitive from the beloved ’90s kid’s game show would be returning in an all new animated series from the streaming site, with Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez voicing her. But it looks like the red trench coat enthusiast’s grand plans for a return are much bigger than that, because Rodriguez will now also be starring in a live-action film about the character.

Deadline reports that Netflix has acquired the live-action rights to the elusive thief and they have plans to make a “standalone Carmen adventure that will embrace the beloved ’90s property.” Rodriguez, who earlier this year appeared in Alex Garland’s sci-fi thriller Annihilation, will pull double duty after being tapped last year to play the character in the new cartoon series expected to debut sometime in 2019.

No writer or direct has been hired yet for the project, but we imagine whomever signs on will be seeking out the best social studies students from around the globe to fact-check the script. (What? Do you not realize how hard it was to actually win that game? Those kids were super smart!)

Next year will also see a related series of new books from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt about the character, which means we actually do know where in the world Carmen Sandiego is now: everywhere.

What do you hope to see from a live-action Carmen Sandiego movie? What do you think of Gina Rodriguez playing her? Don’t make us have to search for your thoughts, share them with us in the comments below.
