'Dora and the Lost City of Gold' Swings Onto Home Entertainment

After delighting kids of all ages with her small screen adventures, Dora the Explorer finally leapt out of animation and into the live-action world with Paramount Pictures, Paramount Players and Nickelodeon Movies' 2019 feature film Dora and the Lost City of Gold. Starring Nickelodeon alum Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Dora & Friends: Into the City, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Transformers: The Last Knight) as the titular hero, the all-star cast also included Michael Pena and Eva Longoria as Dora’s explorer parents. And if the voices of Boots the monkey and Swiper the fox sound familiar, that’s because they’re Danny Trejo and Benicio del Toro! And in addition to delighting fans of the long-running TV franchise, the film was also a hit with critics.


If you missed Dora’s summer movie expedition or just want to relive the adventure, you can now check it out from the comfort of your own home (way less vines to worry about). Here’s what you need to know!

Dora and the Lost City of Gold drops digitally on Tuesday, November 5. If you can’t wait for the Blu-ray release, you can buy it digitally right now at full price on your preferred digital video store, including iTunes, Amazon Prime Video (includes 4K UHD edition), FandangoNow, Google Play, Vudu, and more. If you can wait, though, you’ll be able to get a digital copy of the film along with the Blu-ray copy.


Don’t want to buy Dora and the Lost City of Gold and have it forever? You can always rent it for a fraction of the price. You’ll be able to rent the film digitally from Tuesday, November 19.

The Dora and the Lost City of Gold Blu-ray will be released on Tuesday, November 19. You’ll be able to purchase the film in two different ways: there’s the Blu-ray release (which also comes with a DVD and digital code) and the DVD release.

If you prefer DVDs to Blu-rays, you’ll be able to get a DVD copy of Dora and the Lost City of Gold on November 19. Also note that a DVD copy will also be available in the Blu-ray release (which also comes with a Blu-ray and digital copy of the film).

The Dora and the Lost City of Gold Blu-ray and digital releases all come with the same set of fun-filled bonus features. The special material includes a hilarious blooper reel, deleted and extended scenes, and featurettes about Dora, a look at Isabela Moner’s transformation into Dora, the film’s adventurous stunts, the animated sequence, and a tour of Dora’s jungle house. The DVD, however, won’t come with any special features.


Ahead of the movie’s home video release, ComingSoon.net has unveiled an exclusive Dora and the Lost City of Gold deleted scene for the movie.

Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever – high school. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeff Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Eva Longoria, Michael Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.

11-time Emmy and four-time BAFTA nominee director James Bobin (Alice Through the Looking Glass) has assembled a cast of diverse superstars to star in the movie, including: Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Transformers: The Last Knight) as Dora, Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives, Overboard) as Dora's mother, Elena; Michael Peña as Dora's father; Eugenio Derbez (Overboard, Instructions Not Included; How to Be A Latin Lover), who plays Alejandro, a mysterious jungle inhabitant who tries to protect the teenagers from the marauders; Jeffrey Wahlberg (Future World, Ballers, Counterpart, Reefa) in the role of cousin Diego; Nicholas Coombe (Spy Kids: Mission Control, Midnight Sun) as Randy, a fellow high schooler who develops an immediate crush on Dora; Madeleine Madden (Picnic at Hanging Rock, Tidelands) as the school’s snooty class president, Sammy; Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza (Babel, Amores Perros, Thor, The 33) as Dora’s grandma, Abuelita Valerie; Temuera Morrison (Green Lantern, Moana), who will play the role of Powell; Q’orianka Kilcher (The Alienist), who will play Inca Princess Kawillaka; Pia Miller (Home and Away) as Dora's aunt Mami; Madelyn Miranda, who portrays Young Dora; Benicio del Toro as the voice of Swiper the fox, Danny Trejo as the voice of Boots the Monkey; and Marc Weiner (Dora the Explorer, Go, Diego, Go!, Dora and Friends: Into the City, Weinerville) as the voice of Map.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold is directed by James Bobin, produced by Christopher Robin producer Kristin Burr, who is joined by longtime Bobin associate, executive producer John G. Scotti (The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted, Alice Through the Looking Glass) as well as executive producers Julia Pistor (The Spiderwick Chronicles, A Series of Unfortunate Events) and Eugenio Derbez. Tom Wheeler wrote the story, and Nicholas Stoller and Matthew Robinson penned the screenplay. Walden Media is co-financing and co-producing the film with Paramount.
