‘Dora The Explorer’ Fans Can’t Handle The Latest Actor To Be Cast In The Upcoming Film Project

Grab your backpack, and let’s get to the movie ticket per-order sites chicas! A new report on the development of the new “Dora The Explorer” movie is bringing good news and, for us, the best part is all about Eva Longoria.

Fans eagerly awaiting the release of the upcoming Michael Bay flick will star an ultimate Latina fave.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eva Longoria will join Paramount’s upcoming live-action feature based on the popular animated Nickelodeon series that ran from 2000 to 2014. Longoria will star alongside Isabela Moner as the movie’s titular character as well as with “Extinction” actor Michael Peña, Micke Moreno, Nicholas Coombe, and Adriana Barraza.

The Mexican-American actress most known for her role as Gabrielle Solis on “Desperate Housewives” and more recently has appeared in “Overboard” and “Dog Days” will play Dora’s mother, Elena.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “the movie will tell the story of Dora, a girl who has spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents but now must navigate her most dangerous adventure yet: high school. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego and a rag-tag group of teens on a Goonies-esque adventure to save her parents and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost Inca civilization.”

Fans of both the iconic show and Longoria cannot contain their excitement.

In a post to her Twitter account, the actress playfully asked her fans if she could pass as Dora’s mother.

The big reveal has left quite a few speechless and thrilled.

At this point, I’m pretty much nonverbal and can only speak in heart emojis.

So many fans are expressing their relief of getting to see yet another Latina on screen.

Truthfully, it seems that with each bit of information that the site releases, more and more fans are struggling to contain their excitement.


Cannot deal and BRB. I’m really gonna go grab my backpack and wait to order tickets!

Paramount has set the release date for the “Dora the Explorer” movie on Aug. 2, 2019.
