Check out the new trailers to arrive for Dora and the Lost City of Gold, the live-action feature that takes cartoon heroine Dora the Explorer to the big screen.
Isabela Moner (Transformers: Age of Extinction, Sicario: Day of the Soldado) plays an older take on the character, who is this time facing the wild adventure that is high school. Of course, the jungle is never too far away for our explorer, and she’s soon heading on a mission to save her parents and solve the mystery behind a lost city of gold. New Zealand actor Temuera Morrison (Once Were Warriors, Aquaman) is the baddie.
The first trailer below comes from Paramount Pictures Australia and is a more action-oriented look at the film. The second is from the US and leans into the Latino representation a bit more, including a plug that Danny Trejo is the voice of Boots the monkey (!?).
Directed by James Bobin, who directed 2011 film The Muppets, its sequel Muppets Most Wanted, and the ill-received Alice Through the Looking Glass. Nicholas Stoller (Get Him to the Greek, Bad Neighbours) and Matthew Robinson (The Invention of Lying) penned the script.
Dora and the Lost City of Gold, also starring Eva Longoria, Michael Peña, Jeffery Wahlberg and Eugenio Derbez, opens in the US on August 9 and arrives in Australia on September 12.
Official synopsis for Dora and the Lost City of Gold:
Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever – High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Eva Longoria, Michael Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.
