Netflix is finally going to be releasing the long-awaited original series “Ingobernable” starring Kate del Castillo. The show is slated to be released in March 2017 after a bit of a delay thanks to del Castillo’s connection to the El Chapo controversy. The show will follow del Castillo’s character, Emilia Urquiza, the First Lady of Mexico. According to Todo TV News, the political drama, the second Netflix original to air in Mexico, will show Urquiza struggling to work to improve her country while grappling with the loss of trust in her husband, President Diego Nava.

Mariachi is officially getting the search engine clout it deserves!

Google Doodle’s latest feature celebrates the musical genre of mariachi. As an ode to the anniversary of the week that UNESCO inscribed mariachi on its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The genre of Regional Mexican music goes back to the 18th century.

Google’s latest Doodle features an animated video of mariachi serenading.

Singing “Cielito Lindo,” which is a song that encaptures Mexican pride, the doodle features a band of mariachi members.

Together they sing the following lyrics”De la Sierra Morena/cielito lindo, vienen bajando/Un par de ojitos negros/cielito lindo, de contrabando/ Ay, ay, ay, ay/Canta y no llores/Porque cantando se alegran/cielito lindo, los corazones.”

The lyrics translate to “From the Sierra Morena/Lovely sweet one, is prancing down/A pair of little black eyes/Lovely sweet one, is sneaking by/ Ay, ay, ay, ay/Sing, don’t cry/Because singing makes rejoice/Lovely sweet one, our hearts.”

For the doodle, the mariachi band wears traditional trajes de charro (charro suits) while strumming the traditional instruments of the genre.

Plucking away at the guitarrón, vihuela, and violin, other members use a trumpet and harp. According to Newsweek, “The tradition of mariachi originated in west-central Mexico around the turn of the 19th century, though its exact origins are murky. The musical genre began as entirely instrumental, made up of the sounds of stringed instruments, before vocals and the trumpet were eventually added.”

No doubt Google’s latest Doodle has won over the hearts of various searchers.

“What a beautiful tribute… thank you!” one user wrote.

“The Google doodle for today is a tribute to mariachis & it’s a little video that plays cielito lindo I am not okay, cielito lindo is my favorite mariachi song, it’s too cute,” another commented while another user wrote “I was so shocked when I clicked on this last night. What a wonderful surprise.”

Sweetly, the doodle really seemed to hit home for so many. “The Google Doodle today nearly made me cry,” one very happy user noted. “It was so unexpected and made me miss home for the first time since I moved.”

Robert Rodriguez, the beloved Mexican-American director of family-favorite classics like “Spy Kids” and “The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D” is coming out with a new kids movie on Netflix called “We Can Be Heroes”.

According to Netflix, the film will be set in the “Sharkboy and Lavagirl” cinematic universe, and will function as a “standalone sequel” to the classic kids movie. The movie is set to drop on New Year’s Day.

The story will follow the children of a group of superheroes called “The Heroics”. The children of The Heroics must save the planet after their parents are kidnapped by alien invaders. According to the information that Netflix has released, Sharkboy and Lavagirl will be two of the parents who are kidnapped by these villainous aliens. (Yes, Sharkboy and Lavagirl now have a kid together. Yes, we thought they were siblings this entire time.)

While Taylor Dooley, who plays Lavagirl, is reprising her role for “We Can Be Heroes”, Taylor Lautner, unfortunately, will not.

An actor named JJ Dashnaw will step into Sharkboy’s shoes. But to soften the blow of that disappointing recasting news, none of other than Pedro Pascal will be playing one of the lead roles in the movie, a character named Marcus Moreno who is “a superhero on the verge of retirement”.

“I’ve wanted to work with Pedro since forever,” Rodriguez told Entertainment Weekly. “[Marcus] can be a badass if he needs to. He takes the glasses off, and he looks legit.” 

Although Robert Rodriguez is well-known for his family movies like the “Spy Kids” franchise as well as “Shark Boy and Lavagirl”, he has recently focuses his career on more adult fare like “Machete” and “Alita: Battle Angel”. Fans of “Spy Kids” are excited to be treated to a movie that seems like it will be a spiritual successor of the 2001 film. Rodriguez says that families being stuck at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic has simply fueled nostalgia for his popular kids movies.

“A lot of families have spent a lot of time together,” he told EW. “I’ve been getting calls from all kinds of studios: ‘Reboot Spy Kids.’ ‘Reboot Sharkboy.’ Of course they want to. They’re all sitting at home with their kids.”

Just this year, Robert Rodriguez talked about how hard he had to fight to make the “Spy Kids” family Latino. “For me it was a big victory … to have the kids in ‘Spy Kids’ be a Latin family,” he explained at a virtual Comic Con panel. “The studio was like, ‘Why are you making them Latin, though, why don’t you just make them American?’ They are American, they’re based on my family.”

“There were no roles being written for Latins at that time, back in 1999, nor were they being cast. If I wasn’t Latin, I would have given up the fight,” he continued. “When you’re doing anything that’s new, this just happens to be about diversity, you’re going to get a question and you have to have a good answer.”

We’re excited to take a look at this new kid-friendly movie! We hope it’s as entertaining as “Spy Kids”.
