New Live-Action 'Dora the Explorer' Reportedly In Development at Paramount Plus

Paramount is reportedly developing a new live-action Dora the Explorer movie, based on Nickelodeon's beloved animated preschool series of the same name!

Details about the film are still under wraps, however, What's on Paramount+ reports that Paramount is reportedly targeting a 2023 release date on Paramount+.

The new Dora the Explorer movie is the third new project based on the iconic Nickelodeon IP that Paramount+ has in the pipeline, following Nickelodeon and Paramount+ announcing earlier this year that they are currently making two brand new Dora the Explorer series: a CG-animated preschool series and a live-action series for older viewers. The former is slated to premiere in 2023 on the streaming service.

The new movie will also make it the second live-action Dora the Explorer movie, following Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Players' Dora and the Lost City of Gold theatrical in 2019. Aimed at a older-audience

The news follows Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures releasing the live-action theatrical Dora and the Lost City of Gold in 2019. The picture, aimed at a older audience than the preschool series, starred Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Dora & Friends: Into the City, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Transformers: The Last Knight) as the titular hero, along with Michael Pena and Eva Longoria as Dora’s explorer parents, Danny Trejo as Boots the monkey and Benicio del Toro as Swiper the fox.

It's currently unknown whether the new movie will be connected to the planned tween-skewing live-action series, however, it could serve as a backdoor pilot for the series.

The original Dora the Explorer series ran for eight seasons and followed Dora Marquez, a 7-year-old Latina with a love of embarking on quests accompanied by her talking purple backpack and Boots the monkey.
