Isabela Moner Picture
Sixteen-year-old actress Isabela Moner ("Transformers: The Last Knight", "Sicario: Day of the Soldado") is set to star in Paramount Pictures' live-action movie based on the popular Nickelodeon series "Dora the Explorer" that ran for eight seasons and 172 episodes.

Directed by James Bobin ("The Muppets") from a script by Nicholas Stoller ("Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising") and Danielle Sanchez-Witzel, the film will follow the adventures of a teenage Dora (Moner), her friend Boots the monkey, and her cousin Diego. The film is produced by Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes.

Here's what a studio representative had to say about Moner:
"We are thrilled to have found our Dora in Isabela. Dora has long been a celebrated, strong heroine in animated television, and like Dora, Isabela has an incredible spirit and is an advocate for positive values. With our partners at Nickelodeon, we look forward to continuing Dora’s story for generations to come."

Moner also spoke about her casting:
"I'm honored and excited to bring Dora to life. I grew up watching the show, and for me, especially as a Latina, Dora was an amazing role model — she is a strong, adventurous and fun-loving girl. I can’t wait to put on the backpack and begin her next adventure!"

"Dora the Explorer" will shoot in Queensland, Australia and is scheduled for release on August 2, 2019.
