Isabela Moner has revealed the first photo of herself as Dora the Explorer in Paramount Pictures‘ upcoming live-action movie based on the Nickelodeon series. The big screen adaptation is scheduled to hit theaters on August 2, 2019.
Based on the long-running hit Nickelodeon animated series, the live-action theatrical feature will follow a teenage Dora – accompanied by her best friend, the monkey Boots, and her cousin Diego – on an adventure. James Bobin is set to direct from a script by Nick Stoller and Danielle Sanchez-Witzel.
Launching in 2000 and running on Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., and CBS, the original Dora the Explorer series followed the adventures of a seven-year-old Latina who travels through a fanciful world with the help of a talking Backpack, an anthropomorphic Map, and her best friend, a small monkey named Boots. The film version will shoot in Queensland, Australia.
