The new series stars Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) as the eponymous globe-trotting master thief who steals various landmarks, leaving clues to her and the stolen goods' whereabouts with geographic puzzles. Rodriguez is also slated to star in a live-action film as the character for Netflix which has been in various stages of development since 2012.

Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard was later added to the series' voice cast, inviting viewers to solve the thief's latest string of crimes around the world. Additional details about the series, including additional cast members and the locales involved with the revival, are currently being kept under wraps.
