Dora And The Lost City of Gold is the latest from Michael Peña, Isabela Moner, Eva Longoria and Benicio Del Toro.
Directed by James Bobin and based on the Dora The Explorer children’s television series, a teenage Dora takes on the adventure of high school. However, Dora soon finds her self and some new school friends on a jungle adventure to save her parents and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold…
The fact that Dora is a teenager in this movie and not seven years old like in the series is an interesting change I didn’t expect.
I’m aware of Dora The Explorer but I’ve never actually watched a full episode of the TV series so I shouldn’t really be too attached to Bobin’s film. Yet, oddly enough, a part of me already misses the cuteness of seven year-old Dora. I know, I know, seven year-old Dora is a 2D animation but she’s still super cute.
AI already know that I’m going to try and fail to avoid comparing this movie to Hey, Arnold! The Jungle Movie.
Danny Trejo, Q’orianka Kilcher, Temuera Morrison, Isabela Moner, Madeleine Madden, Jeffrey Wahlberg and Christopher Kirby also star.
