The Dora The Explorer Live-Action Movie Looks Low-Key Good

3 min read

Dora’s eyebrows though… 

You may remember Dora the Explorer as the loveable - sometimes annoying - Latina cartoon from your childhood. 

She has a killer bob cut, is friends with a monkey, owns a talking backpack and runs around the jungle on different adventures (which is pretty cool, now that we think about it).

When we found out Dora would be getting her own live-action film we were very apprehensive. 

And by apprehensive we mean we groaned loudly and wondered why anyone thought bringing Dora’s over enthusiasm to the big screen was a good idea. 

How wrong we were friends. How quick to judge. ‘Cause the first trailer for the Dora the Explorer film, Dora and the Lost City of Gold, is here and it looks low-key good.

Are we the only ones who think it looks like a better version of the 2017 Jumanji remake? 

Anywaaaay, our key takeaway from the trailer = Dora has ah-mazing eyebrows. 

Seriously, check out that arch: 



While Dora’s brow game is inspiring, the film has other things going for it. 

For one, it LOOKS expensive. You can tell a budget film within the first few seconds of a trailer, but this ~masterpiece~ has the sheen of $$$ which automatically makes us want to see it. 

Plus, Eva Longoria plays Dora’s mum which is double bonus points. 

The weird CGI monkey is a slight step backwards, but we’re letting it slide because Dora gives us serious bad ass energy and we dig it. 

Look at this girl go: 

The general premise of the film is that Dora was raised in the jungle and gets sent to normal high school while her parents go on some cool AF mission. She gets kidnapped by some baddies and escapes to save her mum and dad. 

Cross to us in the movie cinema watching her kick some butt for two hours.

We’re not the only ones who are vibing the Dora film. 

The internet has spoken; 

Dora and the Lost City of Gold = movie of the year.
