HOLLYWOOD – Michael Bay’s live action version of Dora the Explorer will be very political.
Michael Bay spoke about his new live action version of the Nickelodeon TV show Dora the Explorer today.
The Transformers and Pearl Harbor director told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY that he wants a Dora that is suited to Trump’s America. He said:
When Dora first came out the world was a different place. Most of us watched it with a sense of innocence. Little did we know that Dora actually comes from a world of rapists and criminals. Since Donald Trump’s election, I’ve decided to rewrite the script and now we’re going Dora going to the American border and discovering the wall. Will she be able to go over it? Will her backpack help her in some way? I can’t tell you yet, but I’ve got a feeling no.
Surely this is politicizing children’s television.
Well, the left wing did it first with Sesame Street. All that bullshit about the people in your neighborhood and having to speak Spanish. All we’re going to do is try to balance things up a little.
But at least Dora will give a positive role model for Mexican girls.
Yes. I’m sure Emma will do a great job.
Emma Stone. She’s playing Dora.
Dora the Explorer comes out in 2019.
