If your little one has been waiting to hear “Hola! Soy Dora!” in theaters, now is your chance to make their dreams come true! Your favorite little explorer will make her animated theatrical debut in a short film before screenings of PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie. PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie is rated PG for mild action/peril. 

The short film Dora and the Fantastical Creatures follows Dora and Boots as they explore the land of alebrijes, a part of the rainforest that is home to colorful, magical creatures. The short film features well-known characters like Swiper, whose antics might ruin the Copal Tree Celebration. Boots and Dora will use teamwork and friendship as they band together to save the alebrijes. 

Dora and the Fantastical Creatures makes way for the Latina heroine’s new show Dora, a CG-animated preschool series coming next Spring. The show will stream on Paramount+ and air on Nickelodeon channels. 

Dora and the Fantastical Creatures will be shown exclusively in movie theaters starting Friday, Sept. 29. Tickets are available for PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie at fandango.com. Watch the trailer below. 

Additional Dora content will be available on Paramount+, Noggin, and Nickelodeon platforms following the short film debut.
