Headlines 26/03/2019

Legendary Kiwi actor Temuera Morrison is set to star in an upcoming live action adaptation of Dora the Explorer.

Dora the Explorer and the Lost City of Gold takes the much beloved Nickelodeon children's cartoon and gives it new life in a live action format, set to hit cinemas in August.

By the looks of the new trailer, Unlce Tem will be taking up the role of one of the main villains in the story, which he should be more than comfortable with after playing Jake the Muss and Jango Fett in perhaps his two most iconic roles.

Alongside Boots and cousin Diego, Dora will face off against Morrison's character, Powell, as "he pursues her parents in their attempt to solve a mystery behind a lost Incan civilisation."

The film is set for release August 2.
