Netflix, Skydance, and Spyglass release the first trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s highly-anticipated reboot, “Spy Kids: Armageddon.” The filmmaker returns to the franchise that captured hearts worldwide at the start of the 2000s with a fresh twist and a new cast.

Zachary Levi, known for his role in “Shazam,” takes the lead alongside Gina Rodriguez from “Jane the Virgin,” Everly Carganilla of “The Afterparty” fame, and newcomer Connor Esterson. Together, they form the new family at the centre of this action-packed film.

The story kicks off when the children of the world’s greatest secret agents inadvertently aid a powerful game developer in unleashing a malevolent computer virus. This virus grants him control over all technology, pushing the young heroes to step up as spies to save not only their parents but also the fate of the world.
