Dora the Explorer faces one of the most unruly jungles ever — the modern big-city high school — in the first trailer for Paramount’s “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” which was released Saturday.

Isabela Moner, who was last seen in “Instant Family” and “Sicario: Day of the Soldado,” stars as a teenage version of the cartoon Nickelodeon hero. She’s out to save her parents and discover the secret of a lost city of gold in a new adventure — along with her trusty backpack and blue monkey pal Boots.

After spending most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents (Eva Longoria and Michael Peña), Dora (Moner) sets out on her most dangerous adventure ever — high school.

Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a ragtag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.

Adriana Barraza, Temuera Morrison, Nicholas Coombe, Madeleine Madden and Danny Trejo star, and Benicio del Toro provides the voice for Swiper the Fox.

“Dora and the Lost City of Gold” comes from Paramount Players and Nickelodeon Movies. It’s directed by James Bobin. Tom Wheeler wrote the story, and Nicholas Stoller and Matthew Robinson penned the screenplay. Kristin Burr is producing, and Julia Pistor, Eugenio Derbez, John G. Scotti are executive producing.

“Dora and the Lost City of Gold” opens Aug. 2. Watch the trailer above.
