Chronicling her adventures, the film will have Dora shed her 7-year-old child avatar. She will reportedly be shown as an independent teenager living in the city with her cousin Diego, in the film. Although any information on who will play the leading role has not been revealed, a report by The Hollywood Reporter claims that the project has been in the works since 2015 but got delayed due to various reasons.

Although no release date has been announced yet, the makers want the film to hit the theatres in 2019, as per the aforementioned report.
