The long-awaited, action-packed, live-action ‘Dora and the Lost City of Gold’ feature film is coming to a theater near you on Friday, August 9. Dora [Isabella Moner] is out of the jungle and living in the big city and taking on high school.
In the trailer released by Paramount Pictures in partnership with Nickelodeon Movies, we see the excitement build as Dora’s parents [Michael Pena and Eva Longoria] explain that they are going on an expedition to find an ancient city that is filled with gold. But, this time, their explorer daughter, who they have raised in the jungle, won’t be with them.
Taking it all in stride, the young woman gets on an airplane, excited about the adventure that awaits beyond the jungle she has called home.
Dora is met at the airport in the big city by her cousin Diego [Jeff Wahlberg]. It’s been some time since the pair of childhood adventurers have seen each other. “Cousin Diego! You’re so skinny and tall!” Dora proclaims. “You are way more energetic than I remember,” Diego replies.
