Paramount Players has released the first official photo of “Transformers” star Isabela Moner as the title character in the live-action adaptation of Nickelodeon’s Peabody Award-winning children’s animated series “Dora the Explorer”.
In the film, Dora has spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents. However 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 (Micke Moreno), 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. Temuera Morrison, Eugenio Derbez, Nicholas Coombe, Madeleine Madden and Adriana Barraza co-star.
The shot is timed with the announcement that filming began on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia on Monday. James Bobin directs the project for Paramount Players, Nickelodeon and Walden Media. The film opens August next year.
