More and more often, we’re seeing Latinas represent our stories on television, in movies, and in books. However, it’s not just Latina faces that make a big impression on these platforms. Animated cartoons, video games, and movies also benefit from the talents of Latina actresses. In fact, these Latinas have been voicing our favorite cartoon characters for generations.
The latest example of Latina talent coming to us in animated form is the new Netflix reboot of “Carmen Sandiego”. Premiering January 18th, the show is a fresh spin on the 90’s fan favorite. Voicing the mysterious master thief is ‘Jane the Virgin’ star Gina Rodriguez.
