First Trailer Has Been Released For The Live Action 'Dora The Explorer' Movie
The classic kids TV show Dora the Explorer has been on our screens for a whopping 20 years. We all know her as the small Latina girl, dressed in a pink shirt and purple backpack, who goes on missions in the jungle with her trusty monkey sidekick Boots.
Well, the show has been given the 'live-action movie remake' and we've been given a first look at what it'll be about.
The movie, titled Dora and The Lost City of Gold, follows Isabela Moner as the titular character, who gets sent to live a normal life with her cousin Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), before she gets captured by her parent's rivals and made to find...you guessed it, a city of gold.
The official synopsis reads: "Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego, and a rag tag group of teens on an adventure to save her parents and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost Inca civilization."
Eva Longoria from Desperate Housewives and Michael Peña from Ant-Man will play Dora's parents.
Michael Bay's (of Transformers and Pearl Harbour fame) production company is behind the film. But if you were hoping for outrageous explosions and over-the-top action, you'll be sorely disappointed because Bay himself isn't involved in the movie.

It seems like the public's reaction of the trailer has been a bit mixed, ranging from the excited to the downright appalled.
One person said: "Sony: We made one of the worst films of all time with The Emoji Movie. Paramount: Beer my hold."
Another commented: "This literally shows that Hollywood is completely out of ideas what's next Tom and Jerry live action movie."
Other people were concerned that the live-action remake was taking away from Dora's personality in the TV show.
A viewer wrote: "This takes away from the original Smart Dora - she wasn't clumsy and unaware."
Some were quick to point out that Dora's backpack doesn't talk, like it does in the TV show, and she doesn't have her trusty map. Also, the fact she casually has a knife on her is definitely not the same Dora we've watched on our screens.
But then again, this is supposed to be 'grown up' Dora, not the child that we're used to seeing.
Who knows, maybe this will inspire the new generation with Dora the Explorer. There's no doubt that there'll be a couple of sequels lined up as well.
