You may have thought you left Dora the Explorer in your childhood, but she's grown up and got a brand new movie. 

Dora is back, grown up and apparently now an action movie star, but what makes this whole movie just that bit weirder, is the Kiwi star we spotted in the trailer!

Temuera Morrison, who you'll recognize from Shortland Street and Star Wars, will star in Dora and the Lost City of Gold as Powell, who has the potential to be the film's main bad guy.

The film is a reimagining of the cartoon "Dora the Explorer" series and judging from the trailer, Dora is learning to navigate the waters of young adulthood while searching for hidden treasure.

Dora's film is supposed to hit theatres August 2nd.
