Back in 2015, along with some news about a Micronauts film, was the word that Paramount was working on a live-action Dora the Explorer movie. For those of you who didn't have kids around between 2000-2014, Dora the Explorer was an animated series on Nickelodeon that featured the adventures of a 7-year old Dora who went on quests with her talking backpack and monkey pal Boots, teaching kids Spanish along the way.

Though the main series ended in 2014, it looks like Paramount is interested in kicking up interest in the franchise and it has brought some muscle in to help. Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will be jumping in to produce the film. Paramount has also recruited Nick Stoller (The Muppets) to script the film.

Though not confirmed, it is being reported that the film will have Dora, now a teenager, moving to the big city to live with her cousin Diego. Dora also aged up (to about 10) and went to the city in the spin-off  Dora and Friends: Into the City cartoon.

No date for the film but it is supposedly being fast-tracked for a 2019 release. We'll have to see how Bay incorporates his signature military nods and explosions into the film.

We're sure Michael Bay's #1 fan at The Outhouse, Zechs, will have a detailed review of this when it lands.
