Family adventure directed by James Bobin, and is an adaptation and continuation of Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer. The story follows, Dora (Isabela Moner), a teenage explorer, who has spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents. However, nothing could prepare Dora for the most dangerous adventure ever, High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), her cousin, Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), and a rag tag group of teens on an adventure to save her parents and solve the impossible mystery behind the lost city of gold.
Dora’s Father: [to Dora] You know the jungle, it’s a part of you. But exploring is not a game, and you don’t look before you leap.
Elena: We’re on to something big, Dora.
Dora’s Father: An ancient city made of gold, Parapata, and your mother and I are going to prove it.
Dora: And me
Elena: I’m sorry, sweetie, you’re not going.
Elena: [to Dora] Being in the city around kids your own age, like Diego, might help.
Dora’s Father: [to Dora] So you’re going to get invited to some of these parties called raves. The music sounds like this, “Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba-ba. Go get it!” Be careful, that’s what we want to say.
Dora: Cousin Diego, you’re so skinny and tall.
Diego: You are way more energetic than I remember.
Diego: Dora, this isn’t the jungle. It’s high school, it’s life or death. So if I don’t talk to you, don’t take it personal, okay? We’re all just trying to survive. High school’s a terrible nightmare.
[referring to school]
Diego: Keep a low profile. And just be cool, Dora.
[to herself as she steps off the school bus]
Dora: Just be yourself.
[as she steps down to get off the bus, the bus door closes on her backpack and starts to drive off with Dora attached to the door]
Dora: Uh, excuse me, I’m kind of stuck!
Teacher: Where did you transfer from?
Dora: The jungle.
Sammy: Who are you?
Dora: I’m glad you brought it up.
Sammy: I’m just kidding. I don’t actually care.
[to the students]
Field Trip Teacher: Here’s the scavenger hunt list. Team up in groups of four.
Powell: Ola, Dora.
Dora: Let me go!
Powell: You help us find your parents, and the lost city of gold.
[after Dora and her friends have been kidnapped by Powell and his mercenaries]
Sammy: Where are we? All I see is jungle.
Dora: I see three mercenaries armed.
[she pulls out a knife]
Sammy: Oh, look, Dora brought a knife to the field trip, everybody.
[to Dora and her friends]
Alejandro Gutierrez: Come with me if you want to live!
[to Dora and her friends]
Alejandro Gutierrez: We we’re with your parents. You’re all in danger.
Randy: We’re going to die out there.
Alejandro Gutierrez: There’s no need to overreact.
[just then his face gets caught in some spider web and he screams in terror]
Alejandro Gutierrez: Get it off! Get it off!
[as he turns, he smacks his head on a tree branch, falls and passes out]
Sammy: Of course, she knows this monkey.
Dora: I have to keep going, no matter what.
[after Dora knocks out a mercenary chasing them]
Randy: She’s freaking awesome.
Dora: The jungle is perfectly safe.
[as they hide in a tree branch]
Alejandro Gutierrez: I think we’re safe.
[as an arrow is shot, it hits the top of tree branch they’re hiding in, which starts rolling down the hill]
Alejandro Gutierrez: Not safe! Not safe! Not safe!
[to Doral; referring to Boots, her monkey]
Sammy: Seriously? You have that in your backpack too?
Dora: Quicksand! Don’t panic.
[as they try to move, they hear a fart noise]
Randy: Excuse me.
Alejandro Gutierrez: I ate chili con carne!
[as he lifts his foot, he farts, everyone laughs]
