Dora the Explorer is headed to the big screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount is developing a feature film based on the Nickelodeon TV show.
The children’s animated series focuses on Dora, a young girl of Mexican heritage who goes on adventures with her companion, a monkey named Boots. The educational show ended in 2014 after a run of eight seasons and more than 170 episodes.
Nick Stoller, who also worked on The Muppets and Storks, is writing the live-action Dora the Explorer movie. Platinum Dunes will produce the project, which is set for release in 2019. Not much has been revealed about the film, but THR reports “the live-action take is said to center on Dora, not as a 7-year-old as on the TV series but now a teenager who moves to the city to live with her cousin Diego.”
