Is “Dora the Explorer” Coming to the Big Screen?
Who doesn't love Dora the Explorer? Do you love her enough to see her on the big screen? Well, it's not going to happen, folks, sorry! But that doesn't mean we can't dream!
Dora the Explorer is an American animated television series created in 2000. The show is carried on the Nickelodeon cable television network, and stars Dora, the main character, an eight-year-old girl who embarks on a trip in every episode in order to find something or help somebody. She asks the viewers at home to help her find new ways to reach places with the help of Map. She also teaches viewers Spanish, introducing them to short words and phrases. Dora is fond of Boots, who became her best friend when she saved his beloved red boots from being swiped by Swiper the mischievous fox, who continually attempts to steal items from her party. She acts against villains only when it seems that compromise is impossible, and even in these cases, fails to display actual anger. She gives others a chance to try their hands at tasks even when she herself might have an easier time with them. Dora values her family, whom she loves openly, though she spends little time indoors at home with them. She tries to introduce her traditions and customs, subtly and without compulsion, to those who are not familiar with them.
It was revealed on February 18, 2008, that Nickelodeon would make a made-for-television movie based on the series, but as a live-action/CGI animated feature. Dora, who would still be of Hispanic descent, would become a ten-year-old girl in this version with other characters computer animated. The movie was expected to be released in 2011, until it was swiped...by unknown people, I wonder who..?
