I am not sure why Hollywood decided to make a Dora the Explorer movie now instead of a decade ago. It would almost seem as odd as Disney making an Avatar land nearly a decade after the release of the first movie, especially with no idea how well the sequel will be accepted. However, Hollywood is being Hollywood and we’ll soon see Dora on the big screen with her backpack and monkey in Dora and the Lost City of Gold.

The monkey, known as Boots, is being voiced by none other than Danny “Machete” Trejo!

Trejo is a cool dude and has appeared in over 300 roles. Voice acting is no stranger to him as he has played Jasper in Storks, the Newtralizer in the 2012 TMNT series, and Skeleton Luis inThe Book of Life.

Set to hit the big screen on August 2nd the film will see Dora lead her friends to save her parents and explore the Lost City of Gold. The adaptation is directed by James Bobin (The Muppets) with a screenplay from  Nicholas Stoller (Night School).
