An all-new generation of Spy Kids are here! I mean, Robert Rodriguez can’t very well use the same kids from 2011’s Spy Kids: All the Time in the World, can he? With Spy Kids: Armageddon, Rodriguez reboots the franchise with a cast led by Gina Rodriguez, Zachary Levi, Everly Carganilla, and Connor Esterton.
The basic premise remains the same, as a family of super spies take on a dangerous megalomaniac. Billy Magnussen plays the villain, a megalomaniacal video game designer who unleashes a computer virus giving him control of the world’s technology.
Also in the cast are DJ Cotrona and Fabiola Andujar. Robert Rodriguez directs, as he has every Spy Kids movie, and co-wrote the script with his son, Racer.
This is the second Spy Kids project that Rodriguez has done with Netflix, following the animated series Spy Kids: Mission Critical.
Here’s the synopsis: When the children of the world’s greatest secret agents unwittingly help a powerful Game Developer unleash a computer virus that gives him control of all technology, they must become spies themselves to save their parents and the world.
Spy Kids: Armageddon hits Netflix on September 22nd.
