Washington D.C [USA], October 24: The popular Nickelodeon children's series "Dora The Explorer" is making it to big-screen.

The original series stars a cartoon 7-year-old who goes on educational adventures Sesame Street-style, but the movie update will star living actors and feature a more grown-up Dora. It included interactive elements, allowing viewers to solve new puzzles and riddles in every episode.

Paramount initially looked to develop Dora for live-action back in 2015, with a script from Puss in Boots writer Tom Wheeler.

Yes, that Michael Bay. A little odd it is then to discover that the producer/director has been brought in as producer on a planned live-action "Dora The Explorer" film. Director of The Muppets and Neighbors Nick Stoller has been recruited to write the script.

Bush took a knee when Obama fundamentally transformed America
Trump ran straight at the Bush family legacy in defeating a field of Republican candidates that included former Florida Gov. Former President Barack Obama also made a veiled swipe against Trump at campaign rallies in New Jersey and Virginia.

The producer and director Michael Bay at Chicago, June 20, 2017. The film is aiming for a 2019 release date meaning it could begin filming sometime in 2018. It centered on an American Latina who, along with her monkey, Boots, faced riddles and characters like a thieving fox named Swiper as she went on quests.

The fifth film in the franchise "Transformers: The Last Knight" is the last movie to be directed by Bay who will not be returning for the next sequel. It will be interesting to see whether or not Bay's involvement and the changes applied to the property result in a similar outcome for the filmmaker.

Other than having Nick Stoller and Michael Bay on staff, there is no other concrete information yet to be had on Paramount's "Dora" movie.
