Fans of Dora the Explorer expect the character to take them on an adventure. And the new family movie DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD looks to do exactly that. There will be excursions through the jungle and a pit stop to an unexpected — and very dangerous — location.
But how is DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD ensuring that audiences get the most out of their globe-trotting expedition when the movie opens later this summer?
Directed by James Bobin and based on the beloved children’s television series “Dora the Explorer,” the new DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD casts Isabela Moner as the title character. As in the TV show, Dora is an adventurous and curious young girl who’s always eager to hop into action alongside her supportive parents (played on screen by Eva Longoria and Michael Peña).
Joining Dora for her first big-screen feature will be the classic characters of Boots the monkey (voiced by Danny Trejo) and Swiper the fox (voiced by Benicio Del Toro).
To ensure authenticity, the crew shot on location in Queensland, Australia. The Paramount Pictures studio lot had to serve as the backdrop for an Inca jungle, where Dora (Moner) has to travel with her cousin, Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), after her parents are kidnapped.
But the jungle isn’t the only threatening environment that Dora will encounter in DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD. Before she embarks on that journey, she’s going to have to endure the “wilds” of high school … which should be enough to send a shudder of fear down the spine of any audience member.
