The young stars, Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara are nearly 14 and 10 and according to director Robert Rodriguez just have time to do one more Spy Kids, he hinted that it may continue as a cartoon series after that.

Alexa who plays Carmen Cortez said, "I think if we keep on going, we'll be too old. I was 10 and I think all the other girls auditioning were eight. They didn't want it to turn into Spy Teens, which it's kind of doing, so that's why we just tried to blow one movie out of the way and do the next one and the other one coming up."
