Yeah, this may seem like an early April Fool’s joke, but it’s not!

Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes has scored the rights to bring the Nickelodeon character of Dora the Explorer to life. Yes, Dora is going in a live-action form courtesy of Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller as producers with Neighbors director Nicholas Stoller writing the screenplay.

Adapting the character from her recent spin-off Dora and Friends: Into the City, the film will follow a teenage Dora as she will move to New York City and live with her cousin Diego, who was the star of his own spin-off series, Go, Diego, Go! from 2005-2011.

The film is still going through the development phases and is scheduled for a 2019 release date.
