The most loved cartoon series that have been on the small screen since nearly two decades is finally all set to make its grand entry on the big screen. Originally aired on Nickelodeon, the cartoon is multi-recreational, educational and wholly entertaining.

Since it involves a lot of natural sites and scenic views, the film is being currently shot in Australia’s gold coast region. With the release time for the live-action film announced, fans and the general audiences were eager to know who will play the role of Dora.

Isabella Moner has announced that she has been chosen for the role and also expressed how deeply humbled and excited she is to play Dora’s role.

“I’m honored and excited to bring Dora to life. I grew up watching the show, and for me, especially as a Latina, Dora was an amazing role model — she is a strong, adventurous and fun-loving girl. ‘I can’t wait to put on the backpack and begin her next adventure!”

She also did voiceovers for one of the Dora The Explorer spinoffs back when she was younger; Moner voiced a character on the Dora spinoff series Dora and Friends: Into the City.

Moner has previously gained audience appraisal for her roles in mega movies like Transformers: The Last Knight and Sicario: Day Of The Soldano.

On another bright side, the casting of Isabella Moner has been widely appreciated because it endorses representation of the women of color.

Dora the Explorer featured the first-ever Latina animated lead character and ran for eight seasons between 2000 to 2014 and they have respected this tradition for the real live-action film too.
