Dora the Explorer is coming to the big screen in live-action form, and it has a new title to go with it. It’s now referred to as Dora and the Lost City of Gold. Clearly, Paramount is banking on this being a big hit, and are hoping there can be many entries. But what will the movie look like? Can it go live-action without losing its innocent cartoon origins?

We still have to wait and see when the trailer drops this Saturday during the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, but we now have our first taste of what to expect in the form of a new poster, which shows Dora herself seeing an ancient-looking city in the background. From the looks of it, this is a painted poster, but it likely gives us an idea of the overall aesthetic, which seems almost Detective Pikachu in style, with cartoonish animals and a stylized live-action look.

Check out the poster.

But I guess that wasn’t enough. Here’s another poster for the UK market.

Below is the official synopsis for Dora and the Lost City of Gold:

“Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever – High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Eva Longoria, Michael Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.”
