!Vámonos! “Dora the Explorer” is heading to the big screen. A live-action adaptation of the Nickelodeon animated series is in the works at Paramount Players. The film, which will focus on the bilingual adventurer as a teenager, is set to be produced by none other than Michael Bay.

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, the “Transformers” director, who is known for his special effects-laden action films and explosion sequences, is producing the movie (that absolutely nobody asked for) alongside Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. “The Muppets” writer Nick Stoller is also expected to develop the script.

There’s no word yet as to whether the live-action film will also feature other characters from the animated series, which ran for 14 years, such as Boots the monkey, the Map/Backpack or Swiper the fox. The THR report states, “Details are being kept under wraps, but the live-action take is said to center on Dora, not as a 7-year-old like on the TV series but now a teenager who moves to the city [to] live with her cousin Diego.”

The “Dora” film is set to be released in 2019.
