The first live-action film of Dora the Explorer has recently been joined by Ant-Man star Michael Pena. Pena has been cast as Dora’s father alongside Eva Longoria who will be playing Dora’s mother.
The popular animated show ran on Nickelodeon from 2000-2014. The hit cartoon series is now getting its debut on our cinema screens and is set to release in August 2019. The story will follow Isabela Moner who will be portraying the central character Dora, with James Bobin at the helm directing.
The tale will revolve around a teenage Dora on a quest to save her parents. Of course along the way, an adventure will unfold with popular characters such as her monkey companion Boots helping Dora on her journey.
With Pena now on board to play her father, the Latina cast for the film is almost near complete.
