The show is pushing the boundaries of what TV can do.

The movie is currently being filmed in Queensland, Australia, with James Bobin (The Muppets) directing from a script written by Nicholas Stoller (The Muppets & Muppets Most Wanted). It's scheduled for an August 2019 release date.

According the The Hollywood Reporter, "The film’s story sees a high school-bound Dora finding herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego and a rag-tag group of teens on a Goonies-esque adventure to save her parents and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost Inca civilization."
