Dora and the Lost City of Gold takes up the story a full ten years after the famous cartoon series as we follow the adventures of teenage Dora through the jungle and the city. The film also has some very well done nods to the source material that are sure to make parents smile.
Dora and the Lost City of Gold
This is definitely not a film aimed at preschoolers and is much more on par with the recent Jumanji movie with action, stylised violence (no blood) and some tense times with the bad guys. The majority primary and early high school audience at the preview today seemed to enjoy it very much, including my seven and ten year olds.
Dora is a fun movie with a great real life message on stranger danger even if it is delivered alongside a talking fox.
Kids are going to love the action scenes, the animal side kicks and the toilet humour and adults are going to love that they cut most of the 'Dora stares at the screen while you talk back stuff'. Win, win.
