Dora and the Lost City of Gold has received its first trailer, and the previously animated character embarks on a new adventure that takes her from the jungle to the concrete walls of high school.
The film is a continuation of the animated series, which ran from 2004 to 2014 on Nick Jr. The movie sees Dora beginning high school only to depart to South America to rescue her kidnapped parents, who are being held in the ruins of a lost Incan city.
