Big news for parents who have to pry their kids away from the TV as soon as the Dora the Explorer theme song comes on: there's officially a live-action movie in the works. Paramount Player announced that shooting began on Aug. 6 in Queensland, Australia, and we can hardly wait!

So who gets the honor of playing Dora IRL? Isabela Moner, a 17-year old actress whom you may recognize from Instant Family. Nicholas Coombe will star along Isabela as Randy, Dora's quick-thinking sidekick who may have developed a little crush on his BFF, and Michael Pena and Eva Longoria will play her parents.

As for the bad guy? According to The Hollywood Reporter, Benicio del Toro is slated to voice Swiper — the orange fox with some seriously sticky fingers — despite the fact filming wrapped up two weeks ago. Catch Dora the Explorer and all her friends in theaters on Aug. 2, 2019!
