Where in the world is Camen Sandiego? She’s with Gina Rodriguez.

Deadline reports that the body positivity star will be taking her talents to Netflix as the star of a live-action Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Rodriguez will also serve as a producer through her I Can and I Will production company.

Though it was announced last year that she would be starring in the animated remake due in 2019, this live-action film is a standalone story, according to Buzzfeed. These Carmen Sandiego projects are still in the early stages, as neither a director nor a writer is attached—but the excitement of both is enough to please any 90s kid.

For those who still remember, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? was a half-hour game show that was based on the popular computer game of the same name. Three contestants had to answer questions to determine where in the world the shady Carmen Sandiego was located. It aired on PBS from 1991-1995.

Who’s excited for not one, but two Carmen Sandiego remakes with the lovely Gina Rodriguez?! I know I am.
