Dora The Explorer Live-Action Movie Now Has A Title And Poster

Explorer is her middle name.


It's been many months since there was any news about the live-action movie based on the hugely popular animated Nickelodeon show Dora the Explorer--but now we have a title and first poster. The movie is titled Dora and the Lost City of Gold, and it's set to hit theaters in August.

The poster shows star Isabela Moner (Transformers: The Last Knight) as Dora, looking out at a great ancient jungle city--with her monkey pal Boots on her back. According to the poster, "Explorer is her middle name," which might come as news to those who thought it was "The." Anyway, check the poster out below:
