This photo offers us our first look at Isabela Moner (Transformers: The Last Knight, Sicario: Day of the Soldado) as Dora in the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Dora The Explorer, and you know what? She looks like Dora! Check out the full image below and let us know what you think!
Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents nothing could prepare Dora for the most dangerous adventure ever – High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego, and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost Inca civilization.
The film started shooting recently in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. The movie is being directed by James Bobin (The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted).
Moner is joined in the film by a supporting cast that includes Eugenio Derbez (Overboard, Instructions Not Included, How to Be A Latin Lover), who plays Alejandro, a mysterious jungle inhabitant who tries to protect the teenagers from the marauders. The film also features big screen newcomer Micke Moreno (Escobar: Paradise Lost), in the role of cousin Diego; Nicholas Coombe (Spy Kids: Mission Control, Midnight Sun) as Randy, a fellow high schooler who develops an immediate crush on Dora; Madeleine Madden (Picnic at Hanging Rock) as the school’s snooty class president, Sammy; and Adriana Barraza (Babel, Amores Perros, Thor, The 33) as Dora’s grandma, Abuelita Valerie. Temuera Morrison (Green Lantern, Moana) will play the role of Powell. Additional key casting announcements are forthcoming.
Paramount will release the film on August 2, 2019.
