Trailer Review: The Movie trailer has got mixed reviews. As per a set of
audience, Dora the Explorer is a nostalgic show who is not supposed to be
converted in a live-action movie.
Dora was apparently 7 years old in the series. Now, in the movie she has become
a teenager. It is confusing which age group the makers want to target through the
movie. People loved the show but now it doesn’t make any sense to make a live
action movie adapting from an educational TV series.
On the other hand, most of the Dora fans are very excited about the movie and
eagerly waiting for its release.
It will be exciting to see how this big hit animated series turns out to be on the big
screen. We can’t wait to see Dora pulling the backpack for a new adventure once
