    In a world bursting with espionage and covert missions, the Spy Kids franchise has thrived, spinning a tale centered around the intriguing and dynamic Cortez family. Over several movies, the series introduced audiences to various generations, all of whom embrace the inherited responsibility of being spies. Juni Cortez, portrayed by Daryl Sabara, emerges as the franchise's young beacon. Initially perceived as weak, he gradually transforms into a global savior, coming to the rescue on numerous occasions. Carmen Cortez, brought to life by Alexa Pena-Vega, is Juni's elder sister. Known as the more responsible one, she constantly looks out for Juni.

    However, as the series unfolds, the tables turn, and Juni finds himself rescuing her on various occasions. The journey of these two siblings from discovering their parents' covert lives to becoming pivotal members of the OSS spy agency is nothing short of spectacular.
