The Trailer for ‘Carmen Sandiego’ Has Been Released


Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?


A little while ago Netflix announced that they were going to be making an animated Carmen Sandiego series. The time has finally come for us to see the first trailer!

The Series

The Netflix Carmen Sandiego series is a follow-up to the Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? franchise. It’s going to follow the globe-trotting thief in her earlier years. Rumor has it that the series will cover her origin story, explaining how she became the mystery so many of us know and love.

Gina Rodriguez will be starring as Carmen Sandiego, with Finn Wolfhand voicing her right-hand man, Player. There are currently twenty episodes lined up, all of which are around twenty-two minutes long.

The series itself will drop on January 18th, which means we don’t have much longer to wait! There’s no doubt in my mind that the series is going to be full of heists, adventures, and dramatic getaway chases.

The Trailer

The animation used is highly stylized – but it suits the character and her personality perfectly. While the series is clearly aimed at a slightly younger audience, I think that many adults will appreciate the style, as well as the humor indicated in the trailer.

What they showed on Carmen Sandiego’s origin story already looks interesting. I had never really thought about how the woman ended up the way she is, so it’s fun to do so now. Her personality is spot on, as is her humor and general way of being.

The music playing in the background was pure perfection. It was dramatic yet subtle, and very clearly made for the series. I hope it’s a snippet of the opening theme song, but I guess I’ll have to wait and see.

More News On the Horizon

In March Netflix announced that this will not be their only adventure in the world of Carmen Sandiego. They’re also working on a live action movie, again starring Gina Rodriguez. We don’t know much about the movie beyond that, but likely we’ll be hearing news shortly.
