JOIN DORA AND FRIENDS WITH FAMILY PLAY AND WIN YOUR OWN EXPLORER PRIZE PACK

PREPARE FOR ADVENTURE

Entering adolescence can be the most daunting quest of all, even for everyone’s favorite explorer. Dora is back in an all-new live-action adventure with all her familiar friends from the hit animated show, but she’s grown up since her days helping jungle creatures and foiling Swiper the fox.

In Dora and the Lost City of Gold the intrepid adventurer is a teenager setting off for her first day of high school. The movie is a great coming-of-age story for fans of the series, with plenty of the same action, puzzles, and positive messages families know and love. If you’re unsure if this slightly more grown-up Dora is right for the kids in your family, our new Family Play feature can help. With Family Play you can skip content like violence and strong language in eligible films, selecting which content to skip based on you and your family’s preferences.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold is recommended by the in-depth reviewers at Common Sense Media for viewers ages 8 and up, since it does contain some teenage romance, an armed hostage situation, and some close calls with traps and other danger. If you want to let younger kids enjoy the positive messages and role models without some of the above, you can simply turn on Family Play, select what types of content you’d like to skip, and enjoy the show.

WATCH YOUR MOVIES YOUR WAY WITH FAMILY PLAY *UPDATED 11/14*

EVERYTHING YOU WANT, NOTHING YOU DON’T

We know you and your family want to watch the latest hit movies, but may not be comfortable with some of the content (violence, sex, swearing, substance abuse.). That’s why we’ve introduced Family Play, a new way to watch your favorite movies while choosing the content you’d like to skip over or mute.

CHOOSE WHAT TO SKIP

When watching eligible movies, Family Play lets you skip over scenes or lines that you’ve decided don’t align with your values or aren’t appropriate for your family. Family Play puts the power in your hands by letting you select specific content types like Language, Violence, and Sex/Nudity that you would like to seamlessly skip over, while leaving everything else the same.

If you’re ok with your kids hearing some harsh language but don’t want them seeing depictions of drug use, you can turn on the Substance Abuse option while leaving Language alone. If you want to enjoy the latest mystery thriller with all of the suspense but none of the fighting or sexuality, the Violence and Sex/Nudity buttons are there for you. If the kids have gone to bed halfway through the movie and you don’t mind the adult content, just pause the movie, turn off Family Play, and resume the movie from the same place you stopped without any skips. Family Play gives you options to take charge of your viewing experience based on preferences and who is watching.

Because skips and mutes are determined based on a number of different contextual factors, viewer discretion is still advised. If you have questions or concerns about content that was not skipped or muted, you can contact our Customer Care team at 888-554-8838.

PIN-PROTECTED FOR YOUR FAMILY

Even when you’re not monitoring, Family Play can help protect your kids from the content you don’t want them to see. Setting an optional 4-digit Pin to exit Family Play means the settings you’ve selected will stay on while your kids are enjoying Family Play eligible movies from your collection on their favorite devices.

Family Play is set-up separately on each device, so you can set a PIN on devices that are for family use while having no PIN, different settings, or no Family Play at all on your personal devices.
