The film Spy Kids from 2001 was one of those movies that may have seemed puzzling unless within its particular demographic. The sheer oddness of it might have baffled my parents, but as a child, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I watched a VHS copy repeatedly until it became worn out. It was full of creativity, humor, and featured Danny Trejo. The pressing question now is: can such a movie successfully captivate audiences once more? Well, the only way to know is to give it a try.

It has been revealed by Robert Rodriguez, the original movie’s director, that plans are underway to breathe fresh life into the Spy Kids series in collaboration with Skydance Media and Spyglass Media Group. Rodriguez himself will take on both the writing and directing roles once again. Although not explicitly stated, some entertainment analysts speculate that Rodriguez may have been inspired to revisit his previous works following the relative success of We Can Be Heroes on Netflix, which was a pseudo-sequel to the even more peculiar Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl.

Naturally, as Daryl Sabara and Alexa PenaVega have outgrown their roles as children, it’s logical to assume that a new cast will have to be assembled for the spy family to take over from the Cortez family. Rodriguez has not dropped any hints about potential candidates but did mention his intention to feature a “multicultural family.”

Meanwhile, Rodriguez has been actively involved in the Star Wars realm, contributing to the writing of The Mandalorian and the upcoming Book of Boba Fett. If the reboot proves successful, it could pave the way for him to explore more of the projects he’s interested in, potentially including a sequel to Alita: Battle Angel.
