Diego travels the world, rescuing animals, with a little help from his older sister Alicia, sidekick Baby Jaguar, and talking camera Click. When Diego’s really in a bind, he might even call on his older cousin, Dora (yes, that Dora). A bilingual kid, Diego gives viewers the opportunity to learn geography, zoology and Spanish. ¡Vámonos, amigos!
REMEMBER: WE ALL SHARE THE SAME WORLD. AND WE CAN ALL HELP TAKE CARE OF IT – TOGETHER!
THE SHOW IS A LIVE STAGE SHOW TOO! IT WAS BIG HIT WITH MORE THAN
HALF A MILLION ATTENDEES AFTER IT DEBUTED ON STAGE IN 2007
When Dora the Explorer was originally conceived she wasn’t even a “she”…the original lead was a male rabbit. Hard to imagine now that Dora is perhaps the best-known fictional Latina in the world.
The creators could never have guessed that Dora and the spin-off series Go Diego Go! and Dora and Friends would become global phenomena, but maybe the reason why is actually quite simple: “Dora doesn’t just talk to kids,” Valerie explains. “She engages them. She makes them part of her adventure. She’s their friend.”
Why create a new show for Dora? It’s time for a new adventure.
