According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Bay will be a producer on a big screen adaptation of Dora the Explorer. Yes, you read that correctly, the master of explosions, will be producing the cinematic version of the beloved children’s show. Nick Stoller (NeighborsThe Muppets) will write the script for the film. The film is thought to focus on an older version of Dora, likely a version in her teenage years.

This is one of the odder bits of news I have come across in some time. Michael Bay provides a certain type of cinematic experience, one that doesn’t necessarily lineup with Dora The Explorer. While he is the man behind the Transformers franchise that was originally intended for children, this situation is a bit different. Transformers was more easily adaptable to what Bay is known for, as opposed to Dora the Explorer which had a heavy focus on being an educational program.

Of course, it’s worth highlighting that he’s only hopping on as producer. If he does take on the role of director, I think we’d all be be forgiven for being more than a little confused.

The studio is hoping for a 2019 release.

    While I could personally care less about a Dora movie, I’m seriously disturbed by Michael Bays seeming obsession with ruining ppl’s childhood memories……transformers, tmnt, now this and god knows what else ? It’s about time for us to put a foot down and toss Bay in a bay. This man must be stopped before he does anymore damage !!!!!

    last time I checked….. doesn’t Bay’s production company skimp on production assistants able to poop in car rentals with a bucket? Platinum Dunes is notorious for not spending money, buying all the money on rights to franchise name and trying to make a profit about 19 films with only Texas Chainsaw and the Purge being successful. (how does one fuck up a Jason film with Weed in it?)
    Yes, Bay bought the rights to Dora because it’s a name, but will we have more people pooping in buckets. In this day and age, maybe we should ask the pooping question because if we ran a budget portapooty would come more priority then Bay’s name on the poster.

  • It’ll be renamed though – Whora the Exploder

    I can’t wait to see Swiper explode.
