Filming On Paramount's Live-Action DORA THE EXPLORER Begins Next Month

Producer Andrew Form has revealed the window for the start of filming on Paramount's live-action adaptation of Dora the Explorer, which will shoot in Australia.

Filming on Paramount's live-action feature of Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer is slated to begin next month. Speaking to Collider, Andrew Form, who is producing the film with Brad Fuller and Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes, revealed filming will begin in five weeks. Assuming the interview was conducted around the time of its posting, that would put the start of filming around mid-August. The movie will shoot in Australia thanks to a last-minute tax break concession from local authorities.

James Bobin (Alice Through The Looking Glass) is directing the movie which will be an updated take on the hit Nickelodeon of the cartoon. Paramount's live-action film will follow a teenage Dora as she navigates the world with her cousin Diego and her monkey friend Boots. Isabella Moner is set to play the titular character, while Eugenio Derbez has been cast as the film's villain (currently under wraps).

Explaining what attracted to him to the project, Form said:

I have young kids. It’s amazing when you have young children what you start watching on television and what you start reading in books. We were working with the Ninja Turtles, we were working with Nickelodeon, and they started talking about bringing that to the big screen and they were like this could actually be something really, really cool.


Dora the Explorer is scheduled to hit theaters on August 2, 2019.
