I am still little shocked when I see news about a live-action Dora the Explorer movie. However, we recently learned who will play Dora’s cousin Diego, and who will be Abuela Valerie (Dora’s grandmother).
Micke Moreno from Ojitos Hechiceros and Escobar: Paradise Lost will be the adventurous Diego.
Meanwhile, Drag Me to Hell, Thor, and Babel actress Adriana Barraza will be Abuela Valerie. They will join Isabela Moner from Transformers: The Last Knight who will play Dora.
Dora the Explorer will be directed by James Bobin with Danielle Sanchez-Witzel and Nicholas Stoller writing the script. Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes will be producing the film along with Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. It is reported that production will begin later this year in Australia.
