Who is she? Where is she? Carmen Sandiego is back!

Los Angeles-based animation studio Chromosphere handled both production design and the above main title sequence for Netflix’s rebooted version of the animated series, which features the voice talents of Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez and Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard.

To reintroduce the world to the mysterious Ms. Sandiego (Rodriguez), a world-class thief who uses her powers for good, Chromosphere combined a stylish noir-inspired cat-and-mouse sequence with a high energy, kinetic action montage. It’s all served up in a stark black, white and very specifically, red palette that lets the title character shine.

Carmen Sandiego is now streaming on Netflix.
