‘Dora the Explorer’ Discovers El Dorado in Paramount and Nickelodeon's First Two 'Dora and the Lost City of Gold' Movie Posters

Explorer is her middle name!

Paramount Players and Nickelodeon Movies today unveiled the first two posters for their upcoming live-action Dora the Explorer movie, Dora and the Lost City of Gold! Additionally, it's also been revealed that Nickelodeon will debut the first Dora and the Lost City of Gold trailer during Kids' Choice Awards 2019 on Saturday, March 23!

Nickelodeon and Paramount's first Dora and the Lost City of Gold movie posters, below, gives fans a first-look at the film's logo, as well as a first look at Dora’s pal monkey Boots and her trusty Backpack! The second poster, this one hailing from the U.K., sees Moner beside some of her cast mates, while offering a better look at CG Boots.

Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Transformers: The Last Knight), who was last seen in Instant Family and Sicario: Day of the Soldado, stars as a teenage version of the beloved Nickelodeon character. She’s out to save her parents and discover the secret of a lost city of gold in a new adventure. Here’s the full synopsis:

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.

This posters follow the first image of Moner as Dora, which was released last summer when the movie started production in Australia.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold is set to opens in theaters on Aug. 2, 2019.

11-time Emmy and four-time BAFTA nominee director James Bobin (Alice Through the Looking Glass) has assembled a cast of diverse superstars to star in the movie. In addition to Moner, the film will star Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives, Overboard) and Michael Peña, who play the parents of the titular character; Eugenio Derbez (Overboard, Instructions Not Included; How to Be A Latin Lover), who plays Alejandro, a mysterious jungle inhabitant who tries to protect the teenagers from the marauders; Jeffrey Wahlberg (Future World, Ballers, Counterpart, Reefa) in the role of cousin Diego; Nicholas Coombe (Spy Kids: Mission Control, Midnight Sun) as Randy, a fellow high schooler who develops an immediate crush on Dora; Madeleine Madden (Picnic at Hanging Rock, Tidelands) as the school’s snooty class president, Sammy; Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza (Babel, Amores Perros, Thor, The 33) as Dora’s grandma, Abuelita Valerie; Temuera Morrison (Green Lantern, Moana), who will play the role of Powell; Q’orianka Kilcher (The Alienist), who will play Inca Princess Kawillaka; Pia Miller (Home and Away) as Dora's aunt Mami; Madelyn Miranda, who portrays Young Dora; Benicio del Toro as the voice of Swiper the fox, and Danny Trejo as the voice of Boots the Monkey.

Trejo took to Twitter after the first poster was released from the film to announce he would be playing the character. Trejo wrote "The rumors are true, I finally can tell you I am a monkey...Boots!!! Don’t miss the @DoraMovie trailer this Saturday 3/23, debuting live during the @Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards! #DoraMovie"

Trejo is popular thanks to his frequent collaborations with writer-director Robert Rodriguez. He’s been part of the From Dusk Till Dawn franchise, the Machete films, and the Spy Kids franchise. He was recently in CW’s The Flash, DC Universe’s Young Justice Outsiders, and Disney Channel’s Tangled: The Series. Next, he will be in Rob Zombie’s trilogy ender 3 from Hell, and (eventually) reprise his role as the titular character in Rodriguez’ Machete Kills in Space.
