Dora and the Lost City of Gold DVD digital and rental release UK

Everyone’s favourite explorer had the big screen live action makeover this year and next up is the Dora and the Lost City of Gold DVD and digital release date (UK details below) planned for late 2019. The adaptation of the Nickelodeon show will already have a lot of fans waiting for the home entertainment release, but with a big name cast and strong trailer it’s going to be fairly popular on iTunes, Xbox ONE, PS4 and Amazon Video beyond its core fan base.

Dora is played by Isabela Moner (Transformers: The Last Knight), who had her first break on Nickelodeon’s 100 Things to Do Before High School, as well as voicing Kate in Dora and Friends: Into the City!. The cast also includes Michael Pena and Eva Longoria as Dora’s mum and dad, along with movie legends Danny Trejo (The Book of Life) as Boots the monkey and Benicio del Toro (Avengers: Infinity War) as Swiper the fox, so this is definitely going to be a big family DVD and digital release in the UK, as well as in the US.

Reviews were pretty favourable from both critics and aggregators with a lot of praise for Moner’s portrayal of Dora and the overall adaptation of such a well known kids character for the movies. Dora and the Lost City of Gold may not be the coolest film out in 2019, but it does look like it has packed in the family friendly fun and you can check out the trailer below to see it in action.

The plot sees Dora being sent to an LA school, while her parent head deep into the jungles of Peru in search of the lost Incan city of gold, Parapata. She does her best to fit in with her own brand of actual jungle life and unrelenting cheer, but as soon as she manages to make friends, she gets kidnapped. Along with her new pals, she’s taken back to Peru to be used as leverage by mercenaries to force her parent to help them find the city for their own ill-gotten gains.

DVD, iTunes, Xbox ONE, PS4, Amazon and digital rental release date UK

The Dora and the Lost City of Gold DVD release date is expected in early December 2019 in the UK, literally just in time for the Christmas rush. At the moment it doesn’t look like it’s going to be available on Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD in the UK, despite having Blu-ray option in the US, so it looks like DVD is going to be as good as it gets over here.

The digital release on iTunes and Amazon Video should be a week earlier, so possibly the end of November, but we’ll update things as soon as there’s more to go on. However, the Xbox ONE and PS4 digital release will be on the same date as the DVD comes out, which will also be the case for digital rental.

The Dora live action adaptation has a run time is 1 hour 42 minutes, which should give it a file size in the region of 3.7Gb at 1080p HD and 1.47Gb of storage space for standard definition. It’s a mid-range family film, so check your PC, Mac, PS4 or Xbox ONE disk drive for available space before you download the digital version of the film.

UK cinema release date

Dora and the Lost City Of Gold came out on the big screen in the UK on Friday the 16th August 2019, a week later than the US release date on the 9th. As a relatively small family film, it didn’t pick up huge box office figures, but it should prove to be a little more popular on DVD, digital and rental when it arrives at the end of the year. The biggest film out in cinemas in the UK that week was Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which obviously has a very different age group target, so it’s main competition Came from animated film Uglydolls.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold age rating

The Dora and the Lost City of Gold age rating is PG with certification in the UK by the British Board of Film Classification in the UK. As you’d expect for a Nickelodeon live action film there isn’t much to be aware of, but then Dora does pack a few weapons in her kit back, which probably the biggest reason it didn’t get a U rating. The rating notes also include mild threat and rude humour.

There have been a number of live action adaptations in 2019 with Aladdin and The Lion King both out later this year on DVD, Blu-ray and digital and it appears that PG is just going to be the age rating norm for this kind of thing. Maybe it’s the added realism that pushed the certification up from the U that you might expect.

We’ll add in more details about the age rating as they become available, but the information above should give you a good idea of what to expect from the home entertainment release.
