Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019, D: Bobin) S: Moner, Peña, Longoria





Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever — High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Eva Longoria, Michael Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.
I'm confused as to what age group they're trying to sell this too?

Wow, it's the Tomb Raider prequel that we've all been waiting for.

It looks to be following the exact same story as Spy Kids.

What was a College Humor skit in 2012 is now a real movie.

I also think I'd rather watch this version (if it was real).

Isn't this film about 15 years too late? I know Dora was once a hot property, but that shipped sailed long ago..

Seems like this would be aimed at kids who grew up with Dora and maybe have kids of their own now. Yes, that's how old we are.

My daughter grew up watching Dora and is now 11. This might interest her. In a sort of “Dora grew up just like I grew up” way.

Yeah, the target audience for this is clearly nostalgic tweens.

Can't be any later than the Carmen Sandiego movie.

Honestly that College Humor skit looks better than what we’re getting. If that was the actual movie it’d have that same meta “laugh at yourself” vibe that The Brady Bunch movie had.

I absolutely love that skit.

For those of you who haven't seen it, College Humor created 3 short Webisodes based off of that 2012 Trailer.
