Dora is back, and we love to see our favorite explorer along with her friends take on new adventures. While Dora and the Fantastical Creatures will be a theatrical short, it will be ushering in a new Dora Series that is coming to Paramount+ in the Spring of 2024. That is really the big news here that a new Dora the Explorer series is coming, and we think that this generation will be in love with it. But before that to get everyone ready for the series in Dora and the Fantastical Creatures, Dora and Boots will adventure in the land of alebrijes, who are magical creatures that reside in the rainforest. They will need to band together against Swiper to save the alebrijes and allow them to celebrate as we also get to see Luna Arcoiris, Sol and Ale. Not to worry though, we will also get Map and Backpack!
