Based on the Nick Jr. kids cartoon Dora And The Lost City of Gold is given a PG age rating in the UK by the BBFC.
The film is loosely based on the TV show and seems to lean more towards films like Tomb Raider and the Indiana Jones series, but just maybe there is an education element to the film that the trailers don't show.
The film is directed by James Bobin who directed the two recent Muppet Movies and it stars Isabela Moner who was recently seen in Instant Family.
The BBFC have given the film its PG age rating for mild threat, rude humour and it has a run time of 102 minutes (1 hour 42 minutes) and is released on 16th August 2019.
