Michael Bay Producing a Live-Action Dora the Explorer Movie

Michael Bay Producing a Live-Action Dora the Explorer Movie”

Here's a headline we bet you thought you'd never read.

Paramount is saying "Vámos!" to a big-screen version of Dora the Explorer, the popular Nickelodeon children's series.

Plot specifics are being kept under lock and key at Paramount for the time being, but THR notes that the live-action spin will center on Dora as a teenager, not as a young child like in the long-running television series. Bay is joined by his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, who will also produce the movie. While the show was animated, the film will be live action.

It's unclear yet who's actually going to be directing the film, but what is known is that the movie is targeting a 2019 release date. The show focused on Dora, a seven-year-old girl who went on adventures with her monkey, Boots.

Dora the Explorer the series ran from 2000 to 2014, airing 174 episodes in total. Diego stared in his own spinoff series Go, Diego, Go! In the past, Stoller has worked on both Neighbors and The Muppets. On the other hand, Nick Stoller recently penned Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie and was a creative consultant The Lego Batman Movie, both to critical acclaim, so the script should be solid at least. He has Night School, a comedy that he wrote, now filming with Kevin Hart starring.

The Dora the Explorer movie has been in the works at the studio since 2015, when the studio was developing with Puss in Boots writer Tom Wheeler and producer Mary Parent (The Revenant, The SpongeBob Movie). This is all somewhat odd, and Michael Bay being involved in some capacity instantly makes one think of a Dora film filled with massive explosions and constantly spinning cameras.
