The upcoming live-action film based on the popular Nickelodeon series Dora the Explorer is set for wide release on August 2, 2019. Paramount Pictures is the film studio behind it with many expecting the film to follow a teenage Dora on her explorations. James Bobin is tackling directing duties as he reunites with his Muppets writer Nicholas Stoller (Storks, Neighbors), who will pen the script. The film is produced by Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes, which he co-founded with Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.
Details about the film are scarce for now, however as next year’s summer season approaches, we may soon get our first look at the titular Dora along with her merry band of friends including Boots, Map, Backpack and the thieving scoundrel Swiper.
Dora the Explorer ran for eight seasons and 172 episodes. The educational series followed Dora and her companion monkey, Boots, as they embarked on quests for treasures while asking the audience for help. The series experienced immense success throughout its 14-year run, including a merchandising empire that consists of toys, books, cosmetics, DVDs and video games, just to name a few. It also spawned the popular spin-off Go, Diego, Go! and continues to be a mainstay in many homes.
