Dora the Explorer Tackles School & Ancient Mysteries in First Trailer for Live-Action Movie

Dora the Explorer Tackles School & Ancient Mysteries in First Trailer for Live-Action Movie

Dora the Explorer is a city transplant on a mission to save her parents and solve the mystery of a lost Inca civilization in the first trailer for the upcoming live-action adaptation of the beloved Nickelodeon series.

Paramount unveiled the Dora and the Lost City of Gold preview during the Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday, and it seems our heroine is up against a whole lot more than just Swiper the Fox this time around.

In the clip, Dora (Isabela Moner) is sent off to live in the city with her cousin Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), separating her for the first time from the jungle she calls home and her parents (played by Eva Longoria and Michael Peña).

The typical high school experience is certainly an adjustment from the life she’s always known, as it turns out you can’t bring crime-fighting weapons to class, and large purple backpacks tend to get stuck in school bus doors.

But Dora’s explorer senses kick in when she’s forced back into the jungle to save her parents and solve the mystery of the long-lost city of gold –— with the help of some new friends.

Dora’s monkey Boots, voiced by Danny Trejo, is also along for the ride, as is her signature purple backpack.

The film also stars Eugenio Derbez, one of Mexico’s biggest stars, as Alejandro, a mysterious jungle inhabitant trying to protect Dora and her friends, and 17-year-old Moner as Dora.

The animated series aired on Nickelodeon for 14 seasons from 2000 to 2014, teaching young viewers basic Spanish vocabulary as they helped Dora complete various missions.

The all-new adaptation was announced last August with Alice Through the Looking Glass director James Bobin at the helm and will hit theaters Aug. 2.

479 Cruise Passengers Airlifted to Safety After Mayday as 'Chaos' Aboard Ship Goes Viral Online

479 Cruise Passengers Airlifted to Safety After Mayday as 'Chaos' Aboard Ship Goes Viral Online

The Viking Sky cruise ship forced to evacuate nearly one-third of its passengers after it suffered engine problems amid stormy weather was safely headed back to shore Sunday, as those who left the vessel recalled the frightening ordeal.

The cruise ship sent out a distress signal Saturday after it experienced a “loss of engine power off the coast of Norway near Molde” with 915 guests and 458 crew on board, a Viking spokesperson told PEOPLE in a statement.

But as of 10 a.m. local time Sunday, the ship was safely traveling to Molde under its own power.

“The ship is being accompanied by two offshore supply ships and one tug assist vessel. The evacuation of passengers has ended and there are currently 436 guests and 458 crew onboard,” the spokesperson said. “The 479 passengers who were airlifted from the vessel are currently on shore and arrangements have been made to fly them home, with the first passengers leaving today. Currently we understand 20 people have suffered injuries as a result of this incident, and they are all receiving care at the relevant medical centers in Norway, with some already having been discharged.”

The Associated Press reported that authorities told Norwegian public broadcaster NRK that the inclement weather was interfering with rescue efforts, as it prevented workers from using lifeboats as rescue vehicles.

Passengers on the ship chronicled the harrowing ordeal on social media, first capturing the damage done by the weather to the vessel, and later evacuations via helicopter.

Passenger Ryan Flynn shared video to Twitter of a crowd of passengers wearing life jackets as water flooded the ground beneath them.

How Prince William Is Supporting Family of Teen Who Died by Suicide: Source

How Prince William Is Supporting Family of Teen Who Died by Suicide: Source

Prince William is set to write a letter to the parents of a 14-year-old girl who died by suicide after viewing self-harm images on social media sites.

Molly Russell died in 2017, and her family believes that she may have taken her life after viewing distressing images online, the BBC reported. Her father has also shared his belief that Instagram is “partly responsible.”

In a statement to the BBC, Instagram said it “does not allow content that promotes or glorifies self-harm or suicide and will remove content of this kind.”

Now, the coroner handling the inquest into her death has contacted Facebook, which owns Instagram, and Pinterest, YouTube and Apple to request information from them, The Sunday Times reports.

As the inquest takes place this week, William, 36, plans to “get in touch and offer sympathy and show support” to the family, a royal source tells PEOPLE.

Cyberbullying is something that the prince has been concerned about for several years and in 2016 he set up the Taskforce on the Prevention of Cyberbullying, which brought together players from the online, tech and youth sectors to see what measures could be taken to combat the rise in harassment and the alienation felt by some young people online.

“This is something he feels passionate about and he wanted to show his support,” the royal source adds.

When his cyberbullying task force wound up last year, William expressed his frustration at the tech companies for not doing enough to “own the issue” and recognize the problems faced by some of the youngest users of the platforms.

In a speech at the BBC at the time, he said the tech companies should “reject the false choice of profits over values.”

“You have powered amazing movements of social change. Surely together you can harness innovation to allow us to fight back against the intolerance and cruelty that has been brought to the surface by your platforms.”

Dr. Dre Praises Daughter for Getting 'Into USC All on Her Own' 6 Years After Making $70M Donation

Dr. Dre Praises Daughter for Getting 'Into USC All on Her Own' 6 Years After Making $70M Donation

Dr. Dre celebrated his daughter’s recent accomplishments while poking fun at the alleged college admissions bribery scandal, which has ensnared stars like Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.

The hip-hop icon, 54, marked his daughter Truly Young’s acceptance into the University of Southern California with an Instagram post that said he won’t face any jail time because Truly, 18, was admitted without help.

“My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!” wrote Dr. Dre (né Andre Young), who along with fellow music mogul Jimmy Iovine gave $70 million to USC in 2013 to establish the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.

The proud dad’s photo showed him posing with Truly as she showed off her certificate of admission and an “Experience USC” pamphlet.

Several celebrities weighed in on Truly’s milestone, including Diddy, who commented with a flexing arm emoji, as Comments by Celebs captured.

Busta Rhymes, TI and Timbaland also left the same emoji, while Nick Cannon wrote, “Absolute Success!!!”

Truly shared the same photo to her Instagram, and later revealed on her Instagram Story that she’ll be attending the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

“ALL MY HARD WORK PAID OFF. I’M GOING TO FILM SCHOOL,” she wrote.

Loughlin, 54, and husband Mossimo Giannulli, the 55-year-old fashion designer, are among a list of 50 people, including Huffman, who have been indicted as part of an alleged nationwide scheme, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts.

“Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits were arrested by federal agents in multiple states and charged in documents unsealed on March 12, 2019, in federal court in Boston,” the release said.

Justin Bieber Blamed for Tourist Influx to Iceland Canyon, Forcing Its Closure

Justin Bieber Blamed for Tourist Influx to Iceland Canyon, Forcing Its Closure

Is it too late now to say sorry?

An Iceland canyon has recently been closed to the public over concerns that the scenic location has been negatively impacted by a significant influx of visitors since it was featured in a Justin Bieber music video in 2015.

The Environmental Agency of Iceland has announced that Fjaðrárgljúfur, which was visited by Bieber in his “I’ll Show You” music video, will be closed to the public until June, reported CNN Travel.

Blaming Bieber for the tourism spike, agency official Daníel Freyr Jónsson told Icelandic news outlet RUV that not many people outside of Iceland knew about the destination prior to the music video, according to Lonely Planet.

“This canyon was somewhat unknown,” he said. “But I think Icelanders have known about it a lot longer. The great increase in foot traffic began after Bieber came. There has been an increase of 50 percent to 80 percent between 2016, 2017 and 2018.”

According to The Telegraph, 150,000 tourists visited the canyon in 2017, and the number increased to 282,000 the following year. To date, Bieber’s music video has been viewed over 440 million times.

The Environment Agency of Iceland initially planned on keeping Fjaðrárgljúfur closed for two weeks in order to allow for the paths and vegetation around the canyon a chance to improve, according to the Lonely Planet.

After it became apparent the two-week closure did not have the intended effect, the decision was made to keep the canyon closed until June 1.

However, Inga Hlin Palsdottir, director of tourism agency Visit Iceland, told CNN Travel that Bieber isn’t necessarily to blame for the damage.

“In Iceland you have extreme weather conditions — for example, springtime can be very difficult for the nature when the snow is melting and everything gets more wet and muddy,” Palsdottir explained.

“We need to build a better infrastructure there so we can invite people all year round,” she added. “It’s just a natural wonder that wasn’t meant to be that popular.”

According to Fox News, it’s believed the ancient canyon was formed around 9,000 years ago, during the end of the last Ice Age.
