Paramount Pictures has unveiled a new trailer for the action adventure film, Dora and the Lost City of Gold. The new minute and a half trailer finds Dora the Explorer struggling to fit in at high school. Fortunately, she’s able to escape to a much less treacherous environment – the jungle.
The cast is led by Isabela Moner (Sicario: Day of the Soldado) in the title role, with Michael Peña and Eva Longoria playing Dora’s parents. Eugenio Derbez (How to Be A Latin Lover) is Alejandro, a mysterious jungle inhabitant who tries to protect the teenagers from the marauders. Jeff Wahlberg (Future World) plays cousin Diego; Nicholas Coombe (Spy Kids: Mission Control) is Randy, a fellow high schooler who develops an immediate crush on Dora; Madeleine Madden (Picnic at Hanging Rock) plays the school’s snooty class president, Sammy; Oscar nominee Adriana Barraza (Babel) is Dora’s grandma, Abuelita Valerie; and Temuera Morrison (Moana) is Powell.
Emmy nominee James Bobin (The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted, Flight of the Conchords) directed the first live-action adaptation of Dora the Explorer. Nicholas Stoller and Matthew Robinson wrote the screenplay from a story by Stoller and Tom Wheeler. Kristin Burr produced, and Julia Pistor, Eugenio Derbez, and John G. Scotti executive produced.
The behind the scenes team includes production designer Dan Hennah, costume designer Rahel Afiley, cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe, film editor Mark Everson, and VFX supervisor Andy Brown.
Paramount Pictures has set an August 9, 2019 theatrical release date.
“Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever – High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Derbez), and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Longoria, Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.”
