Here's Your First Look at the Live-Action 'Dora the Explorer'

Isabela Moner Dora the Explorer

Paramount Player's live action feature of Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer began production a few days ago on August 6, and will shoot entirely on Australia's Gold Coast. Now, the first photo of star Isabela Moner in full costume has surfaced. "I grew up watching the show, and for me, especially as a Latina, Dora was an awesome role model - she is a strong, adventurous and fun-loving girl", Moner said in May upon her casting, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Dora the Explorer is directed by James Bobin, who is best known for movies such as The Muppets and Alice Through The Looking Glass, plus the musical TV comedy Flight of the Conchords. Here's the official synopsis per the press release. Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents nothing could prepare Dora for the most unsafe adventure ever - High School. Accompanied by her best friend, the monkey Boots, and her cousin Diego (Micke Moreno), she sets off on an adventure.

No matter how you say it, a Dora the Explorer movie always sounds like a joke.

Eugenio Derbez plays Alejandro, a mysterious jungle inhabitant who tries to protect the teenagers from the marauders. Nicholas Coombe, 19, will star as Randy, a fellow high schooler who develops an immediate crush on Dora; Madeleine Madden, 21, will play the school's snooty class president, Sammy; Temuera Morrison, 57, will play the role of Powell; and Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza, 62, stars as Dora's grandma, Abuelita Valerie.

Other casting will be announced at a later time, so maybe Swiper isn't far behind. The production is being supported by the Queensland Government via Screenland Queensland. Village Roadshow Studios, where the production will headquarter, has been host to such recent shoots as Thor: Ragnarok and Aquaman.

Paramount Pictures is a subsidiary of Viacom.
